Adult 20's Costumes
When people think about the 1920s the image that comes to mind is a bob-haired woman in a sparkling knee-length dress. Or, they may imagine a man in a clean-pressed, pinstripe suit. The 1920s were a period of societal changes stemming from women’s newly won right to vote, a booming economy, and the end of the first world war. The prosperous time is rightfully remembered for its glitz and glam, but when you’re looking for a 20s inspired costume, you should know there’s so much more than flappers and gangsters to choose from!
Now, don’t think we’re discounting the spectacular look of a flapper or the intimidating well-dressed gangster. We have all the sequined costume dresses and suave suits you could possibly want. And we would love to help you find the showstopping ensemble that’s right for you. But let’s start with the variety of other costumes you’ll find among our selection.
Celebrate some of the biggest changes in American culture with costumes inspired by the key players. You’ll find the 20s costume for women that fits your brave spirit. From the purple, green, and white of women’s suffrage to the strong look of Amelia Earhart, there’s an ensemble that’s sure to impress! Pick a newsboy costume that pays homage to the everyday living that arrived in new urban cities. Or relive the excitement of the 1921 World Series game that was just the beginning of the New York Yankees’ legacy!

Grab a 20s costume for men that would make Al Capone jealous! Choose pinstripes with suspenders or a white, 3-piece number that is definitely best worn only for a party (avoid all saucy Italian meals in these light-colored outfits folks!) Go all out with a sleek black tuxedo and channel your inner Gatsby. Or, make the ultimate statement with a bright red zoot suit.
Get your jazz-hands ready and slip into any of our available costume dresses. From a simple charleston shape to plunging necklines and full-length gowns, there’s a lavish party-worthy look for you! Choose your favorite color and level of sparkle for your glitzy celebration. Get dolled up in the layers of lace and pearls that Daisy Buchanan loved best. Or learn a new dance for your twirl on the stage as the brave and bold characters from Chicago.
