Fall Style Forecast. Channeling 20’s Glamour: The Flapper Inside. Second City Style Fashion Blog

Fountain of 30

August 23, 2007 • Fashion

Greta Garbo

It’s time to channel your fashion sense back to another era. This time, it’s the roaring 20’s. The flapper style made a reappearance on the fall fashion runway and we couldn’t be happier. A tribute to femininity, the modern take on the 20’s style is really a combination of flapper deco meets clean, modern lines.

Think Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson and Clara Bow who wore fitted knit pleats, bold geometric prints and major bling (deco). Even if you don’t have a bob haircut, top off the look with a cloche (hat), a deep red lip and your sexiest pair of Mary-Janes (with opaques, of course).

    Love the watch, and actually, everything else. I didn’t realize I was a Garbo girl.

  2. Lauren - SCS says:

    I know! Scary isn’t it? It is my absolute fave this season. Come to think of it, I think I was meant to be born back in the Great Gatsby era myself.
    That watch is to drool for. Too bad I bought the Deco a few years ago. I would rather have this one.

  3. I am ECSTATIC that the 20’s is working its way back in. Who doesn’t love a flapper girl?
