The popular image of the flapper we know of dates back to the late 1920s. In fact, the concept [[OlderThanTheyThink dates way back at least in the 1910s]]. While the word ''flapper'' stuck in every dictionary as early as TheGayNineties, the flapper girl started to evolve during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and the Prohibition era. Contrary to popular imagery, flappers did not always wore sleek bobs, fringed dresses and feathered headbands. Earlier flappers had that loose silhouette, yet wore wide-brimmed hats and longer, narrower skirts. But as the decade progressed, and with the help of prominent women like UsefulNotes/CocoChanel, hats became tighter and narrower, and skirts became shorter, and the silhouette more streamlined, like the image you see above.

* Lulu from ''VideoGame/GardensOfTime'' is a flapper in all but name. She's implied to be from the USA of TheRoaringTwenties, dresses like a flapper save for the lack of a NiceHat, and is the most bubbly and cheerful of the girls in the game.

* Anna May Wong in the 1920s deliberately cultivated a flapper image in that hope she would be less typecast as a DragonLady or a demure ProperLady. Unfortunately, it did not work.
