Thanks to the recent release of Baz Luhrmann’s hotly anticipated adaptation of The Great Gatsby, the 1920s are roaring back into fashion. And with art deco, fringes, feathers, and fine jewellery in abundance, this trend is as decadent as Jay Gatsby himself.
You don’t have to go full-on flapper to be part of the Gatsby glamour. Drop waists and headpieces are all very dazzling, but are in danger of looking too costume- party on the high street. Opt for a muted colour palette (champagne, darling?) and flattering fits and the style will see you through to the festive season. Channel your inner Daisy Buchanan with these items from Fever London vintage-inspired collection:
1. Jazz Shift Dress
It’s in the name here- a Jazz Age inspired design. The classic and clean shape of this dress offsets the opulence of its metallic gold detailing, resulting in a stunning and totally wearable take on Gatsby fashion. Team with 1920s style T-bar sandals, drop earrings and lashings of black eyeliner.
2. Opal Empire Gown
Wow in this divine ethereal vintage inspired gown. It is 100% silk and perfect for a special occasion; sure to make you feel you’re as carefree and captivating as Daisy was to Jay (or Zelda to Fitzgerald). Wear with a floral head garland for added boho, or with dark matt red lipstick for evening. You don’t need much jewellery with a dress this sensational.
The Rowland shirt is a great choice if you prefer separates, or want something even more casual. Give your work wear a Gatsby twist by wearing this chiffon blouse with an A-line skirt, or cigarette pants and brogues. Wear with gold eyeshadow, a side parting and loose waves. Go for kohl rimmed eyes or red lips for evening glam. And don’t forget the glitter. Now go get your Charleston on!
