By 1928, the Bright Young Thing's were a social phenomenon, making headline news in the tabloid newspapers. 


Beverley Nichols, a Bright Young Thing who wrote several novels in the 1920s and 1930s, describes his typical 1920s evening attire.

"...waistcoat by Hawes and Curtis of the Piccadilly Arcade, silk hat by Locke in St. James Street, monk shoes by Fortnum and Mason of Piccadilly, crystal and diamond links by Boucheron...gold cigarette case by Asprey of Bond Street, a drop of Rose Geranium on my handkerchief from the ancient shop of Floris in Jermyn Street."
