Designers guessed that Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby would be a box office hit this summer, and that's why we're seeing so many actresses and models on the red carpet now in '20s-inspired clothing and accessories.
The good news is that you can rock the look on even the most meager budget -- and you don't need a flapper's boyish figure to do it. Many designers are taking deco patterns and working them into more flattering styles that take a woman's curves into account. The Haute Hippie dress pictured here may send many of us into our very own Depression (it's $596 AFTER a 40% discount!), but don't fear ...
I've got more affordable Gatsby-inspired looks below!
One of the simplest and most inexpensive ways to get an instant Gatsby look is with a headband like this Flapper Headband (ASOS, $25.46).
Got a special occasion coming up? It's pricey, but I'm loving this Sleeveless Bead Dress (Bebe, $159).
Daisy Buchanan couldn't resist this Diamond Deco Statement Necklace (Charlotte Russe, $6). And I can't resist the price!
Pay direct tribute to The Great Gatsby with this East Robin's Egg Dress (ModCloth, $52.99).
This Deco Plate Waist Belt (ASOS, $17.82 on sale) is pretty and affordable!
I'm crazy about this Warehouse Embellished Yoke Dress (John Lewis, $130), which would be flattering on a range of figures.
And I'd love to splurge on this Vintage Great Gatsby Necklace (MetroPark, $138). LOVE IT.
Are you a fan of Gatsby style, old sport?
