It’s been a while since we had a decade with a really good nickname. Maybe it’s because those things take a while to take root. Just like a person who tries to give himself a cool nickname will usually be disappointed when his friends ignore it and start calling him something way more embarrassing, a decade that tries to name itself is probably going to end up being remembered for something completely different.
And sometimes a decade ends up with so many nicknames that it’s hard to know which one to go with. Take the 1920s, for example. They’re maybe most famous as the Roaring ‘20s, due to the widespread optimism, adventurous attitudes and general party vibe that came in the wake of World War I. It’s also known as the Jazz Age, what with the rise of jazz as the most popular music at all of those raging parties. And somewhat less famously, the decade is also known as the Golden ‘20s, because by the end of the decade so many people were making money hand over fist.
This flashy flapper costume embodies all of nicknames at once. It’s a jazzy little number that can roar with the best of them, and it’s a vision in glittering gold. The sleeveless, polyester pullover dress features a v-neck cut and a sea of golden sequins that will have you sparkling like Fort Knox. It’s a perfect tribute to the up-and-at-’em attitude of the 1920s, whatever you want to call them.
