Ok, so my twenties are almost over, but the 1920s in cinematic format Directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Cary Mulligan and the fabulous Leo DiCaprio is coming via The Great Gatsby!!
Here is the trailer:
Thought I’d add this link which shows a couple of pics on W magazine of behind the scenes on The Great Gatsby (for those who are super excited by the new film!)!!
I’ve been thinking about how fashions of the past influences fashion of now. I love all the glitz and glamour, the music and the spirit of the 1920s. But I don’t think the shape of the dresses really are for everyone. The straight cut and dropped waistline of the dresses can look really good on a straight figure and also if you carry your weight around your middle; if you’re wearing the right size dress, a 1920s flapper shaped dress could skim past all the lumps and bumps!
I think if you truely have a curvy figure then a dress or outfit that emphasises the waist like the 1950s will give you an hourglass shape that will be most flattering.
Balancing out your shape with a larger hem line if you have wide shoulders is also very flattering and again I refer to the 1950s for this look.
But just because the dress shape of the 1920s isn’t for everyone, it doesn’t mean we can’t reference it in our day to day lives with touches of it here and there.
