flapper style? 請大概說明一下最好有圖解~~

    Fashions that go out of style will often come back in style over time. Take bell-bottom pants and hip huggers for example. First popular in the 1960s and 70s, these style were fashion blunders throughtout the 1980s, but by the 1990s they were back. These days, it is not unusual to see teenagers, in off-the-shoulder shirts, a classic 1980 style. The famous '20s flapper style, known for knee-length dresses with low waistlines, is finding its way back, as well.    大概每個字都懂~可是心中浮現的影像卻有點模糊不確定~ 及膝的裙子低腰線? 就是所謂20年代小女生的風格?

    It's a culture thing related to Jazz Age!The flapper, whose antics were immortalized in the cartoons of John Held Jr., was the heroine of the Jazz Age. With short hair and a short skirt, with turned-down hose and powdered knees - the flapper must have seemed to her mother (the gentle Gibson girl of an earlier generation) like a rebel. No longer confined to home and tradition, the typical flapper was a young women who was often thought of as a little fast and maybe even a little brazen. Mostly, the flapper offended the older generation because she defied conventions of acceptable feminine behavior. The flapper was "modern."
