Show us your best moll or doll, flapper or dapper, sheba or sheik. The Costume Council of the Chicago History Museum will present awards for the best-dressed daddies and dames.

There's more to swell style than fedoras and three-piece suits, accessorizing is key to looking sharp! Be a highfalutin' gangster in colorful attire, a common chap with newsboy caps and bowler hats, or dress to the nines with bow ties, top hats, pocket squares, and boutonnieres.

Feathers and firearms are prohibited at the Chicago History Museum.
