Flapper style arose during the 1920s, when women became more rebellious and more tomboyish. Their dresses were shortened to their knees and usually adorned with a fringed layer of material. Unlike earlier times, the dresses did not accentuate their curves. In fact, they hid them. The declining use of a corset and the drop waist design of the dress made the women look less feminine. The women of this era enjoyed dancing to jazz music. The Charleston was one common dance in which women would dance in short flapper dresses and two to three inch heels.
