Spring 2012: The Trends/ 20's Glamour

Since the news about a remake of The Great Gatsby staring Leonardo Di Caprio and Carey Mulligan hit the press, designers have been going crazy for glitter, beading and 20's silhouettes. Especially Ralph Lauren who designed the costumes for the cast of the original film. Art Deco inspiration is literally everywhere, consider Florence and The Machines Ceremonial's cover, for instance. I personally am a huge fan of this trend, I absolutely love the flapper girl aesthetic and the glitz, glamour and romanticism of the era.

It appears to not be too hard to bag yourself a little of the romantic dress of the era, the highstreet's more affordable options are worth seeking out. Take a look at these from Urban Outfitters.

Ah, this little decorative headpiece would be so easy to make (but who has the time?) and would complete an outfit and easily inject a little glamour to your look. At £8 it's a worthy purchase. Next is this gorgeous flapper-esque dress in a pastel shade of powder blue, by Kimchi & Blue, a perfect party piece that could easily be teamed with a denim jacket for everyday wear. This is such a beautiful garment which has scored two trends in one, at a discounted price!!

I think I will definitely introduce this trend to my wardrobe as trends resolving around a period of time always come back round again, so it's more of an investment for the future.

Happy Sunday!

  3. Ohhh the 20s. I absolutely adore the 20s. I love the looks that you featured and that hair piece is fantastic. Found your blog when we were both featured on IFB this week and I'm now following :)

  4. The twenties are such a beautifull fashion era! When finally the ladies started to take a little more fashion risks. Regardless of my love to those looks, i think you have to have an speciall body to look good on a flapper dress, not anyone can pull of a twenties look sadly :/ Bute well.. we have the headpieces!!! yeahhh! Love it.


  5. So nice to see old fashioned glamour rather than crazy modern fashion sometimes! The first image of Melissa T is so stunning, the dress is gorgeous!
