The Spring 2012 runways are full of looks fit for a scene straight out of The Great Gatsby, with drop waist skirts, geometric prints, and ornate jewelry gracing the catwalks of numerous designers. According to New York Magazine’s online fashion blog, The Cut, the culmination of over 450 fashion shows indicates that this trend is going to take the fashion industry by storm come spring.
When it comes to paying homage to the days of flapper girls and speakeasies, it’s the little details that count. Beaded embellishments, swaths of metallic fabric, fringe, ruffles, and pearls turn an ordinary dress into a frock worthy of dancing the Charleston in.
Gucci’s stunning black and gold number radiates class and modern elegance with a vintage twist. With its gold fringe and plunging neckline, the dress is sure to turn heads.
Be on the lookout for these new trends to hit popular retailers like H&M and Forever 21 in the coming months, where sellers are usually first to jump on the bandwagon by offering new looks at the lowest prices.Tags: 1920s, Alberta Ferretti, dress, fashion, Gucci, jazz age, runwway, style, vintage
