Clara Bow exemplified it...

We have been seeking after the look since the 20's...the 60's were another moment in time when the styles were copying the look...We all wear something that came out of this era. Even the knitted caps my mom makes, and the shoes... many of our shoe styles today are reminiscent of the 1920's. My how times have changed, now it's okay to show our legs. By yesterday's standards all women everywhere could be mis-understood..
GIRL"S JUST WANNA HAVE FUN!!! Thanks Madonna, in the 80's you said it so well...

The slang word "flapper", used to mean a young woman, is commonly supposed to be a reference to a young bird flapping its wings while learning to fly. It may however derive from an earlier use in northern England to mean "teenage girl" (that is, one whose hair is not yet put up and whose plaited pigtail "flapped" on her back);[2] or from an older word meaning "prostitute".[3]The slang word flap was used for a young prostitute as far back as 1631.[4] By the late 19th century the word "flapper" was emerging in England as popular slang both for a very young prostitute[5] and in a more general and less derogatory sense of any lively mid-teenage girl.[6]

In the day, those things were pretty "out there", yet today, they still show trendy fashion that doesn't look cheap.
