Ah, the Swinging Twenties, one of my favorite period in history. Why ? Of course, there is a fashion reason behing that : the 20’s represent a decade of style and fabulous parties. Sparkly outfits, opulent jewels, flapper dresses, feathers and pearls : that was truly a time when partying meant dressing up with style (and drinking champagne) !
Wouldn’t you love to step back in time and have the chance to experience the pleasure of getting ready for and attending one of those Gatsby parties ?
Even though times have changed (sigh), let’s use this 20’s inspiration as a way to bring style back to our parties (and even to our everyday lives, after all we only live once !). Okay, wearing a flapper dress with a feather headband might seem a bit inappropriate nowadays, but let’s start small with the accessories : perk up your look with some Gatsby-inspired jewels like the ones below !
- Earrings : feathers are a great way to get noticed with style and a bit of foolishness :
- Bracelets : Etsy is just heaven for vintage jewellery, especially bracelets. Just type in “Art Deco bracelet” or “Gatsby-inspired cuff” and you will get some fabulous pieces like these ones :
- Necklaces : the 20’s were about showing off. Put on your most impressive statement necklace ! (Stella & Dot has some very cute ones)
