The movie version of The Great Gatsby in 2013 brought with it a flurry of 1920s inspired fashion that hasn’t gone away. The current trend of low headbands and tassel jewelry is proof that art deco themes are still making their mark on style.
Gatsby Party Fashion
Since Gatsby-themed parties are so popular (hello, it’s a party theme based on a party), here’s how to look the part with gorgeous pieces that you can wear long after the event ends. And you don’t need to have a Gatsby party invitation to try the look, as it’s also a fun and classy style for any formal or cocktail party. Here are essential components of a 1920s-inspired outfit that’s party ready.
1. Headdress — a dress for your head!
Channel Daisy in a flapper headdress that sparkles. When the movie came out, Tiffany released limited edition replicas of Daisy’s onscreen headband. These were quickly copied and available online for quite a surprisingly affordable price–if you’re willing to trade real diamonds for cubic zirconia, that is!
3. Beaded or ruffled dress
4. Beaded, tasseled or fringed clutch
