Get The Great Gatsby Style

If you’ve been glimpsing at posters of The Great Gatsby and have watched the trailer then you probably can’t help but be enthralled by the glitzy, glamorous costumes. The 20s flapper style is a major trend for the year so we can definitely take a few style tips from the way the characters have been styled in the film. Here are a few ways to embody some magnificent styles from the 1920s in modern-day fashion.

Drop-Waist Dresses
Nothing symbolizes the fashionable era better than drop-waist dresses. These structured dresses are extremely comfy and look ultra chic. The ‘drop’ of the waist can vary, the lower it is the more dramatic the effect. They are a flattering choice for most figures especially if you wish to draw attention away from a boyish or bulky waist.

Patterns
Don’t be mistaken to believe that women’s’ styles back then were demure. They embraced bold patterns and prints and weren’t afraid to go loud. Prints were a major part of this period so if you’re aiming for this trend then remember, the more pattern the better. Geometric prints were a favourite. A great idea would be to tie on a headscarf in a cool pattern.

Art Deco
Art Deco is a design style that combines craft motifs with geometric shapes , often in bold colours and blingy ornamentation. It influenced almost everything in the 1920s from architecture to fashion accessories. Grab a bag, score a pair of earrings or doll up with some hair accessories infused with a deco inspired charm to master this style.

T-Strap Shoes
Work your look with a pair of T-bar shoes. They look cute in tall heels as well as in flats. Get them in bright colours or with studs for a touch of some trendy modern style.

Peter Pan Collars
The easiest way to work Great Gatsby fashion into your wardrobe is with cute peter pan collars. These demure collars carry the prim and proper charm of that time and are the simplest way to incorporate the 20s trend.  A smart collared dress or top in bright shades are a great daytime look.

Fringe
If you’re a flapper at heart than you need to load up on some fringe stat. Beading and tassels were a huge part of dressing at the time. Pair a red pout with a sequin-fringed top or dress and sky-high heels. Get ready to shake it!

Feathers
19020s fashion took quite a fancy to feathered numbers. No formal affair was complete without some flamboyant feathers. Use feathers to take flight from ordinary dressing. If you wish to be the belle of the ball, team a short dress with a feathered skirt with strappy stilettos or ankle boots. Beware though, this style ain’t for the weak hearted.
