We can’t wait for The Great Gatsby. And not just because we’re massive fans of the book and want to see Leo DiCaprio at his best, but because of the fashion! Those super glam 1920s moments are to die for. Love this time period as much as we do? Here’s how to incorporate the era into your looks today.
Wear a drop-waist
A drop-waist frock is totally ’20s. Can’t you just picture a chic gal slipping into one before a fabulous night out?! To make a drop-waist feel totally of the moment, select one that is slightly more fitted on top, and incorporate on-trend accessories like nude heels. Want to really go all out? Add a fascinator to your ensemble!
Add Art Deco graphics
Nothing screams the roaring ’20s more than crazy Art Deco graphics. While we adore Art Deco architecture, it’s time to try this motif in your fashion as well! Try a vibrant black and white printed dress with patent accessories.
Incorporate flapper-inspired feathers
Embrace your inner Daisy Buchanan by wearing a modern take on the classic flapper dress. Make sure your dress choice has beaded accents and feathers and you’ll be good to go! Adding a long necklace will only make your look feel more ’20s.
Indulge in dramatic jewels
Take a cue from The Great Gatsby and pamper yourself with fabulous jewels. OK, OK, there’s no need to spend a fortune here. You can totally buy ’20s-inspired costume jewelry to embody the time period. Try emerald drop earrings and a fabulous cuff. If you want the jewelry to really stand out, make sure you’re wearing a simple LBD.
Slip into T-strap heels
Nothing says ’20s more than a T-strap pump. Make a classic black pair pop with a fun pink dress and sweet chain bag.
And don’t forget to see The Great Gatsby when it hits theaters May 10!
