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

Page 4 of 4

The Glam Storied jewelry company Tiffany & Co. provided all the glizty baubles for Luhrmann's pic. Provided your credit line allows, you too can adorn yourself with Daisy's gems. The diamond purveyor's Gatsby Collection includes the Savoy platinum headpiece pictured above ($200,000), a platinum daisy brooch with yellow and white diamonds ($50,000), and, least expensive among the accessories, an 8.2 carat black onyx and diamond ring ($20,000).

Fancy and cost prohibitive? Sounds perfectly Jazz Age to us.

For the gents, Brooks Brothers pulled out all the dandy stops for its Gatsby collection. (The brand was also involved with dressing the new film's actors.) The most dashing-yet-wearable look combines a kakhi wool and linen jacket ($698), complete with brown linen trousers ($298), a tattersall vest ($248), and a bow tie that doesn't scream "Hey look! A bow tie!" ($55).

Also found in the collection are a pale pink suit ($698 for the jacket), a green shawl collar cardigan ($148), and a few boater hats ($198 each), which we hope will eclipse the fedora in popularity this summer.
