Gatsby and The 1920s Style

May 17, 2013

With the resurgence of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale, the Great Gatsby, to the big screen directed by Baz Luhrmann, everyone has the 1920s on their mind. And for good reason I’d say. The 1920s was the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. Women decided to ditch the restricted fashions of the past and begin a whole new era of short skirts and trousers. So what does that mean for women today? Here’s a few ‘Gatsby Inspired’ looks that remind you why the 1920s were referred to as the “Roaring Twenties.”

Notice the Art Deco detailing in a couple of those dresses? This was huge in the 20s. It also influenced the jewelry as well. Here’s a few pieces we have here at King Jewelers.
