With The Great Gatsby influencing designer collections from Gucci to Victoria Beckham, touches of the ’20s will be rife this Winter with accessories and embellishments added to high street designs. If embracing the trend in a whole-hearted, fancy-dress style isn’t the avenue you wish to go down (and we wouldn’t recommend so either,) then you can always work cuts and accessories of the era into your sartorial selection.
If budget is a bugbear, then tops or shrugs with decadent embellishments will exude the look of the ‘20s without having to fork out much on new additions. A rummage through your forgotten accessories is definitely worthwhile, and any literal hidden gems in the form of chandelier earrings or opulent cuffs will channel the decade perfectly on a night out. This mismatch set from ASOS is a mere £9, which is acceptable enough to part with and not so show-stopping that you’ll feel like a light fixture.
The drop-waist was the signature fit of ‘20s dresses, and though difficult to pull off for the avid trend followers amongst us who aren’t blessed with the figure of a bean pole, it is popular on the high-street and easy to dress down quirkily with a pair of pumps; this aqua lace version is only £21 from Dorothy Perkins, and can easily be sported with a pair of pumps to play down the unusual fit, or wear with an art-deco beaded clutch and wavy locks for a Gatsby-worthy look.
