Nothing describes 20’s fashion better then decadence and luxury.
With the recent remake of Scott-Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby the world is reeling in old timey fashion. Straight out of the roaring twenties a rebirth of retro fashion has made its way back into the closets of girls all across America. Both fashionistas and vintage shoppers rejoice at newly created old designs.
Prior to the great depression the 1920’s were all about luxury and refinement and fashion was no different. Showing up to parties of grandeur in the most recent styles. The twenties was an era of freedom for woman. For the first time the same woman who had been trapped in corsets and restricting designs were set free with skirts and more comfortable outfits. With women entering the workforce in mass numbers, the ignorance of prohibition and a sudden economic boom America had entered into the world stage and as such desired to display themselves as a powerhouse in all markets. With new technologies came fast and more efficient ways to create fabric such as rayon that soon replaced the more expensive silk everyone was pining for. More natural materials cut into masculine styles were what the 20’s were all about.
Coming out of an era of defined waists and restricting styles woman demanded the freedoms that hadn’t had before. With dresses with boyish figures and dropped waists new dresses allowed for functionality and comfort. Coco Chanel was probably one of the first notable women to wear trousers and to change the role of woman’s fashion immensely.
Newness overcame America and let to the great depression of later years. New clothes, appliances, cars and homes became the centerfold of the American way. The style and cut of these vintage fashions is fairly easy to pull off. An overabundance of jewelry is a sure fire way to give a 20’s look of glam. Boyish, non-curve hugging dresses allow for movement while keeping to the woman of the era. Head pieces were a great way to accessories in the twenties. Pairing a glammed out head wrap with a down to earth outfit is a good way to bring the old time glamour back to life.
The twenties in America was a major turning point in fashion as well as life. With growing technology and the ban on woman’s equality slowly lifting the era saw a new life where there had once been war. A time of lux parties and fashions solely to show off ones wealth herald in a new age of an American way of being. Harnessing a piece of that glamorous time is a simple homage of tribute to a bygone era of style that is still seen in films, television and on the red carpet today.
Today is all about layering! With the up and down weather spring is completely unpredictable so today I opted for an outfit intense with layering pieces. Started the look off with a simple green tee partly tucked into my burnt orange American Eagle khaki pants. I threw a grey and black hooded vest over the first for an added look as well as something extra to keep the evening chill away. As for accessories I went all the way today. I chose cotton top flat shoes that went well with the grey vest. Wanting more down to earth accessory choices I chose a brown belt and a feathered adjustable necklace I made. Finally I finished off the look with a silver metallic cross body bag. Over all it is far from one of my favorite looks but I do love the easy aid back style for the day

1 Million Best Colognes 02
1 Million by Paco Rabane is one of the best smelling colognes ever made.
Today’s outfit not only has a pop of color but also follows on trend for this spring. Wearing my polka dot black and white Liz Claiborne button down I wanted a stand out piece to stand out against the neutral shirt. I continued the black into the my shoes and belt to keep the look down to earth despite the loud shade of green As for accessories I opted for black, grey and a green bracelet pulling all the colors from the outfit together, as well as a silver metallic layered necklace.
Today I mixed up my black and white polka dot button down with a deep contrasting maroon. The focus is shifted between the button down and the layered maroon sweater vest that takes more of a center stage. Wanting to keep the look down to earth I opted for a grey pant instead of black. As for accessories I grabbed a pair of black shoes, black bowtie and a cameo ring. Overall I like this look. I feel it’s another step in learning my style. I love the varying colors and the non-monochromatic look.
Today I opted for a look with a few more layers. Choosing my plaid orange and grey button down I wanted something a little different so I paired the shirt with a dark grey vest with matching pants. Defining my waste I picked a simple black belt with hardware. As for shoes I chose my usual simple black shoes. With accessories I went pretty minimal with an antique golden chain. Overall this is far from one of my favorite outfits but it works. Next time I feel like I’d lose the vest.
