Great Gatsby Fashion: The Good, The Bad, and The Must-Avoid Looks

Page 2 of 4

First, some pro tips. As it goes with every trend ever, a little can go a long way. Decking yourself out in head-to-toe Art Deco duds just ain't the way to play it. Instead, incorporate Gilded Age glamour into your wardrobe by choosing detail-conscious pieces. A drop-waist dress, a feather-flocked clutch, sculptural drop earrings, T-strap shoes, and pleats can all contribute a flapper-esque vibe to your look without seeming like you're playing dress-up.

Now, your guide to Gatsby fashion: the dos, the don'ts, and the never-ever-evers.
