The Wardrobe: The Roaring Twenties. Fringe Skirt and Sequin Top

With The Great Gatsby in the cinemas, showcasing fabulous parties and sparkling seas of glamorous dresses the 1920s are making a come back. Embroidery, beading, tassels, fringes, sequins  and feathers characterize the Roaring Twenties, an age of jazz and opulence. The waistline was lower and the cut was, the hems were moving upwards, almost reaching the knee and sleeves were abandoned. For a few years everything was glittering and lavish, decorated with real diamonds and rhinestones. Fashion was dictated by "the taste for dancing" as French designer Jean Patou remarked.

Inspired by the the 1920s fashion I picked out this outfit that incorporated several elements characteristic of the era! Pairing the fringe skirt with sequins in a softer tone gave the outfit sparkle without making it too loud or unwearable. The tassel necklace and skinny heels complete the look perfectly adding to twenties feel.
