You’ll all be pleased to hear that the Great Gatsby glamour is here to stay! Looking forward to seeing the film for ourselves, we’re also happy to see that the flapper dresses, statement jewellery and glamourous embellishments that shine throughout the swinging Gatsby parties are continuing throughout summer and well into AW13. As you will have probably seen through our Facebook and Twitter accounts, we were invited to the press day for Monsoon and Accessorize today. There, they showcased many of the fashion-forward trends that we are expecting when the cold front hits us once again later this year and we were not disappointed!
From accessories to dresses, we saw some beautiful Gatsby details and we’re sharing you with them right now because we know that the 1920s look is being re-interpreted and celebrated this year. Flap-away vintage Londoners and make sure you sparkle along the way!
Gatsby Glitter Top
We’re a little bit in love with this beautifully embellished top from the Monsoon collection. A subtle nod to the vintage glamour of the Art Deco period, for all of you out there who don’t want to be flappers head-to-toe.
Flapper Girl Dress
Shine like Daisy Buchanan is this gorgeous Gatsby-inspired flapper dress. With an Art Deco hemline, the inclusion of more subtle and gentle floral embellishment really makes this vintage 1920s art deco dress a fashion-forward vintage piece.
How cute is this?!? An incredibly clever move from Monsoon, this 1920s flapper-esque outfit comprises a top and a skirt that would suit any little girl. Utilising a colour like seafoam green, this cute vintage style separates dress will transition perfectly from late summer into winter. Expect to see this outfit at weddings, Christmas and New Year parties!
Razzle Dazzle ‘Em
Bold, statement jewellery designed to stand out and attract attention… and who doesn’t want a bit of attention when they’re out partying? With these Art Deco / urban grunge style earrings and necklace from Accessorize, you’ll exude an air of classic elegance and still have that fashion-forward edginess to your look.
Pumped Up Kicks
With these gorgeous black cut out pumps you’ll be making a mini monochrome statement as you walk through the doors of the speakeasy club.
Faux Fur Cardi-Coat
Shrug on this hybrid cardigan coat to keep you warm, but mobile. Soft to touch and warm to hold. Like the guy on your arm, while you’re wearing this number!
Hold On Tight – Clutch This Clasp
With geometrical patterns and dazzling gems, this clutch bag would be the envy of any 1920s speakeasy. Every vintage fashion enthusiast needs a vintage bag and AW13 is seeing the rise and rise of the statement bag alongside the statement necklace in some gorgeous 1920s styles. We can pretend they are real diamonds in this case…
Now all you need to know are the best vintage salons in London and the best vintage hairstyles, so you know what to ask for when you get there!
A big thank you to Monsoon and Accessorize for inviting us today!
