12 ’20s Costumes for Halloween That Are the Bee’s Knees

There’s nothing quite like the roaring ’20s. With the introduction of jazz music, economic prosperity and newfound liberalism flooding America, *everything* was fun and exciting. Prohibition also brought about speakeasies and the growth of organized crime (i.e. flapper style and Al Capone). Yes, it was magical time — one we know you can’t wait to relive. Vintage-lovers get ready, because ’20s style is in this Halloween. You’ll jazz the night away with any of these ’20s-inspired costumes.
