Question ID# - 120
Dear Janet,My boyfriend and me are going to a new years eve dance party in A'dam. The style of the party is gangster. Could you suggest us how to wear?
Thank you in advance for your kind reply.

Gangsters typically wore loud, pin striped suits, garish ties, and fedoras
with large brims (think Bugsy Siegel, Dick Tracy, The Untouchables.) Men can accessorize with spats, opera scarves and two-toned shoes. Of course, carrying a violin case (discreet way to transport a machine gun) is the ultimate accessory. Molls, or gangster girlfriends, dressed in versions of an uptown flapper... so wear a fringed dress, feathered headband, and boa.
