1920’s Inspired Holiday Looks!

Boardwalk Empire Inspired Looks!

I’m seeing 1920’s / Boardwalk Empire inspired looks all over the runways and in stores, and I’m personally oogling the sequined 1920’s era dress above for upcoming holiday parties and NYE!

If you’re not sure what to wear for a big upcoming event, but you want to look non-basic and super stylish, try opting for garb from this era! It’s fun and classic and screams fashionista.

For the ladies:

These looks are about being classy and timeless. We love the art-deco jewelry pieces that complement any outfit and clash different metals and gems into single, artistic pieces.

Feathers add a flair of femininity and playfulness. With their soft edges and colorful options, feathers are fun features on clutches, head pieces, and even earrings! If you’re going for a feathery look, wear simple makeup that puts focus on long lashes and flushed cheekbones.

A flapper inspired dress can be both sexy and sophisticated, and simplifies getting ready by calling all attention to itself! Keep shoes tall, strappy, and try to incorporate black/silver/gold hues.

For the men:

Try sporting a hat if you normally don’t – we suggest simple fedoras or boat hats to add instant sophistication to your look.

Wingtip shoes are a must, especially when paired with a fun bow tie or suspenders.

Don’t hesitate to mix and match different colors and patterns – why not try a striped sport coat with light pants and a dark fedora? If you’re really trying to play the part, throw in a Gatsby-inspired cane.

This weekend was all about being bohemian chic. I wasn’t sure where the day would take me yesterday, so I wanted to be ready for any situation be it casual / artsy / dressy. We ended up going to a street jazz festival (artsy), followed by dinner at one of my faveee restaus (dressier), followed by game night back at home (casual). Turns out my outfit was versatile enough for all!

Since my dress has a patterned lace overlay, I decide to opt out of wearing a belt or any loud jewelry. I kept earrings and necklaces simple, then decorated my wrists with a chunky sequined cloth bracelet and a few bangles (and my Jaw Bone Up Band, obviii).

This weekend’s look:

◊ Dress – Kimchi Blue ◊
◊ Shoes – Anthropologie (forever ago!) ◊
◊ Purse – Bebe ◊
◊ Necklaces – Leola Lace ◊
◊ Cloth Bracelet – Anthropologie ◊
