/ Post by Nina Zhao

We’re already nearing the halfway point of the Roaring 2020s, so if you haven’t yet paid homage to the Jazz Age by throwing a blowout bash à la Jay Gatsby, now’s the time to do it. Just picture it—you and your friends dressed to the nines in beaded, bedazzled, brilliant 1920s-inspired dresses with matching accessories, music filling every corner of the room as you dance the evening away. When you’re about to cut loose, having the right outfit is crucial to boosting both your confidence and your immersion in the atmosphere. Here, we’ve gathered a selection of stunning pieces for you to browse while brainstorming your jazz party ensemble.

Pink 1920s Cap Sleeve Sequined Evening Dress

The beauty of this dress is in its relative subtlety, as it doesn’t rely on copious amounts of sparkles and sequins to make a statement. Instead, the meticulously placed embroidery and beadwork complement the pink base garment underneath, allowing every element to shine both on its own and in harmony with the rest of the design.

Pink 1920s Tassel Gatsby Flapper Dress

Pink and silver make for such a beautiful unlikely friendship! The pale apricot base fabric and peachy-pink tassels of this dress create an incredible contrast with the metallic embroidery, and better yet, it’s the perfect length for hitting the Charleston on the dance floor.

1920s Sequined Fringe Dress

Another flapper dress that takes an unconventional approach to the color palette, this dress’ rich red hues are complemented by sparkling black beading and tassels. This piece is ideal for the girl who’s all about having fun but still wants to maintain a sultry, seductive vibe.

Gold 1920s Sequined Flapper Dress

The black and gold palette on this dress exudes pure art deco and almost seems to give off a glow. With this piece’s intricate floral and geometric beading flattering the curves of your body, you’ll feel like you’re at the height of luxury—exactly the vibe you should be bringing to a jazz party.

1920s V-Neck Sequined Mesh Mermaid Dress

This dress features gorgeous nature-inspired beadwork and multiple layers of tassels that create the illusion of a classic 1920s drop-waist silhouette. It’s also available in a range of colors, so if you’re a fan of the design, you can further customize it to fit your personal preferences.

Black 1920s Sequined Flapper Dress

Where other 1920s-inspired pieces might prioritize over-the-top flashiness, this dress keeps things on the understated side with its delicate embroidery, floral sequin pattern, and flowing fit-and-flare skirt. If your go-to wardrobe color is black or you want to have an air of mystery about you, this is an excellent choice.The forest-green piece’s luxurious yet lively color gives it a unique personality compared to its more gothic counterpart, though it’s just as sophisticated and just as glamorous.

Rose Gold 1920s Geometric Sequined Fishtail Dress

This stunning geometric masterpiece is an unconventional take on traditionally symmetrical art deco aesthetics with a modern low-cut back and fully sequined overlay. This piece is perfect for anyone who wants to pay tribute to the time period but put their own spin on it.

Champagne 1920s Solid Round Neck Sequined Mermaid Dress

This dress is similar to the previous piece, but it features a slightly different pattern and comes in more of a true gold color. The overall design makes it an easy-to-wear choice for those who don’t like tassels or shorter skirts, and the sequins make for an eye-catching display that shifts with every movement.

1920s Sequined Tassel V-Neck Dress

While this piece may seem simplistic at first glance, upon further inspection, you’ll find that it’s actually almost completely covered in sequins. Carefully arranged beading creates eye-catching geometric areas where the cream-colored fabric shows through, accented by matching tassels that cascade down over the underskirt.

Champagne 1920s Sequined Flapper Dress

In this exquisite piece, a champagne-colored base garment is decked out in gold with black beading, a tasseled hem, and multicolored sequin accents at the neckline and hips. The attention to detail found in this dress makes it easy to put on the persona of a wealthy Jazz Age partygoer for an evening.

1920s Solid Sweetheart Neckline Embroidered Long Dress

This is a bit of a standout pick because it doesn’t scream 1920s on its own, but that doesn’t mean it’s not welcome at your jazz party. The floaty embroidered fabric and vintage feel makes this dress beautiful to look at whether you’re out on the dance floor or sitting and chatting with your friends.

1920s Cap Sleeve Sequined Embellished Dress

Striking a balance between extravagance and simplicity is this fun cream-colored dress with dainty cap sleeves and a body-hugging fit. The vertical sequin stripes give the illusion of lengthening your body, while the godet skirt levels out the silhouette by emphasizing your curves with its flared shape.

Black 1920s One-Shoulder Caped Sequined Dress

Old Hollywood is calling, and this dress just picked up the phone. What better way to celebrate jazz than by embodying a seductive, mesmerizing lounge singer adorned in black sequins from head to toe? The fit-and-flare silhouette and one-shoulder cape only add to the elegance of this piece, which is finished off with a sultry side slit.


Paying tribute to the iconic 1920s calls for complete commitment to aesthetics, especially when it comes to parties. Any of the pieces on this list would steal the show at any big event, so it all comes down to what you think will best reflect your unique personality on the big night. We hope you have an absolute blast while planning your jazz party and putting your one-of-a-kind outfit together!
