The film adaptation of The Great Gatsby has been highly anticipated, of course for the cast of A-list actors, but also for the epic impact the film has already had on the fashion industry. Here are Daisy Buchanan-approved accessories that will bring the Roaring ’20s right to your jewelry box.
Brooches are perhaps the most versatile accessory that a girl can own. They can take an ordinary blazer to an evening overcoat in a matter of seconds, and even more quickly, they can transform a messy side ponytail to a red carpet-ready updo! This Art Deco-inspired brooch is the perfect piece to add to your jewelry collection and is even cooler because it looks like it came straight from your grandmother’s jewelry box! (1928, $95)
Who knew high-fashion elegance could be obtained for such a small price? Pearls, crystals and lacey silver details just roared in the 1920s! These stunners could pass for the real thing and cost less than $15! (Accessorize, $14)
Etsy is an amazing place to score fabulous vintage finds. If you have seen images of Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, you may recognize this headpiece. This reworked vintage headband is a spitting image of one from the film and will bring your flapper look to the next level. (Etsy, $522)
Pearls — a classic in every American girl’s wardrobe. This multi-strand necklace will add a touch of elegance to even the simplest little black dress. While dripping in strands of pearls is never a boring look, piling this on with chunky crystal necklaces will give you a look that would make Daisy Buchanan jealous! (J. Crew, $98)
One of the most recognizable motifs of the 1920s is the use of Art Deco geometric shapes. This T Tahari ring is another great buy at under $25 but looks like a million bucks! (Macy’s, $23)
Bring on the bling with this gorgeous Jenny Packham bracelet! This unique piece of arm candy is fit for a bride but cool enough to simply be worn on a date night. The intricately laced crystals, beads and chains make for a vintage-inspired show stopper! (Shopbop, $500)
