Spring ’13 Fashion Trend: Channeling Daisy Buchanan

April 25, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


So unless you have been living under a rock, you know the “new” Great Gatsby film is opening early May and everyone is buzzing about the fashions. Obviously there is nothing new here. In fact, it’s old. Really old. As in 1920’s inspired. And I can’t get enough! I am and have always been a huge fan of deco jewelry, 20’s fashions and ankle strap shoes, so needless to say I am thrilled this movie will once again be influencing trends, even if I am not thrilled that the movie is being remade. I mean how can you improve upon Robert Redford in the mid-seventies? You can’t, but I digress. Am I going to see this version? You betcha. So, get in touch with your inner Daisy Buchanan and look for drop-waist dresses, sequins and flapper details. Here are some Great Gatsby 20’s inspired items to get you inspired:

1. Kay Celine Print Drop Waist Dress, Now $118.80
