The Revival of the Roaring Twenties.Posted: May 3, 2012
The time has come to give winter wardrobes a spring clean, but rather than adopting an “out-with-the-old-in-with-the-new” attitude, designers and fashionistas alike are looking back to the Twenties for inspiration.Think The Great Gatsby, flapper dresses, sequins and beads. Lots of beads.
The Twenties was an era that redefined womanhood, and with social changes came new styles. Outfits became less restrictive and the boyish female figure replaced the womanly curves that had previously been so desirable. Colourful, new fabrics were being used and the dresses were shorter than ever!
The spring 2012 collections of luxury brands, such as Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Christian Dior and Roberto Cavalli, have all been inspired by the Roaring Twenties.
Have no fear, though, as there are more affordable ways to look the part. Vintage boutiques and charity shops are bound to offer little gems, while sophisticated and glamorous Twenties-inspired attire can also be found on the high street for a fraction of the price. Oasis, New Look and Zara are just some of the places where you can find items to complete your Art Deco look, or if you don’t want to shop the old fashioned way then order online at ASOS!
But it’s not just about finding the perfect clothing. Fortunately, you can also find lots of Twenties-inspired hair accessories and sparkly jewellery in Accessorize and Miss Selfridge to add the finishing touches to your vintage look. And when it comes to finding the right footwear, step into Spring 2012 wearing a pair of T-Bar shoes that can be found in Clarks and Marks & Spencer.
So, update your wardrobe by going back in time and turn this year in to the Roaring twenty-twelve!
