The 1920s! Oh how we love them! I have been heavily influenced lately by the resurgence of the roaring 20s. Can you blame me? Its glamour is plastered all over our screens with shows like Downton Abbey and a bold remake of The Great Gatsby. Fashion is cyclical and this particular era is one I’d welcome with open arms and coax to stay a while.
So I’ve decided to add some sparkle and jazz this week with a bejewelled flapper inspired headpiece. But here’s the challenge – how to wear such a lavish piece of head candy without looking like the guest at a fancy dress party? The trick is to pair it with something clean, simple and modern. Stay away from a dress with fringing people! Fringing is the quintessential detail that defined the 20s and will instantly throw you into costume territory! So beware folks. My other suggestion is to not let the headpiece overwhelm you. Learn to be a little irreverent with it. Don’t put too much emphasis on the fact that you are indeed wearing a 1920s headpiece, but rather, think of it as no different to a necklace or a bracelet you would add to any outfit.
So if you’re going to go for it, go big or go home I say. Own it! Just as the 1920s bravely stepped away from conservative formal attire, be loud, proud and wear that fine jewel with wild abandon!
