Gatsby’s got it

May 29, 2012

Fashion is heading back to the Jazz Age

The forthcoming Great Gatsby film adaptation (starring Carey Mulligan alongside Leo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire) has already inspired the fringe filled catwalks this season with a distinct air of the Roaring Twenties. Think flapper dresses, fringing and feathers.

  • Drop-waist dresses are key; it’s a slouchy and flattering silhouette
  • If you’d rather try the trend in a less obvious way, consider pairing a sequined tank with wide-leg trousers, or tucking a silky button-down blouse into a pleated skirt.
  • Accessories will make your outfit, opt for layers of long necklaces, cute cloche hats, and square-cut clutches.
