The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton, finally hit theatres, and it’s gotten us obsessing over everything 1920s! Baz Luhrmann’s reinterpretation was released on May 10, 2013, and everyone is talking nonstop about everything from the music to the glitz and glamour of the period. But, there’s of course one thing that has us girls at Rissy Roo’s stuck in Gatsby fever: the clothes!
To celebrate, we picked out our favorite roaring ’20s inspired looks from our store. These dresses are perfect for nabbing Daisy Buchanan’s style in a fresh, modern way. Check them out below:
For the classic flapper look with a modern twist, we’re all about Jovani style 74201. It’s a unique cocktail dress with beaded detail and a fringe skirt. Beading and tassels are synonymous with this period, and this dress incorporates both in a perfectly modern way. The on-trend nude colored bodice will definitely have on-lookers amazed by the styling of this dress!
For some glitzy art deco inspiration, we love Primavera style 9490. The uniquely crafted sequins in a cross diamond pattern with a super sexy criss cross low back and high slit with slight train will have you feeling like a ’20s princess all night long!
Drop waists were big during this period, and Shail K. style SK3503 brings that style to modern day so well. The fitted hourglass shape and sweetheart neckline compliment your curves and gives the drop waist effect that the fringe at the bottom creates and updated look.
The Gatsby period was a time of extravagance, so however you decide to bring some 1920s style into your wardrobe, do so with confidence! Just make sure that if you go for a Gatsby inspired dress, don’t over-do it in the accessories department. Otherwise, you may start looking a little too period perfect!
