Gatsby Brings Back Elegance
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 30, 2013 ) Munich, Germany -- The silver-screen adaptation of the storied novel The Great Gatsby is something of a timebeacon back to the roaring twenties, and the fashion in the film has taken center stage.
The film is nothing short of a clothing designers fantasy, with call backs to the glamorous dropwaist dresses to the elegant scarves and splendid shoes dawned by elegant Hollywood starlets. What many do not realize, however, is that one does not need to be a directionless millionaire like Jay Gatsby to cultivate the same fantastic look as found in the movie.
Clothing lines are recognizing the interest in the early-20th century look, and making consumer capable accessories for all. There are interpretations of the same high-class elegance that can be purchased by just about anyone as larger brand names are creating the look many desire.
Though sites like eBay, along with major department stores that cater to all styles, one can create the same entrancing look as the many starlets found on the silver screen."Watch the movie, and then pick out items that evoke the era," said Amanda Hallay, professor of costume history at LIM College, a fashion business college based in Manhattan. "Don't be shy to get them secondhand."
Hallay does point out that those interested in the look should avoid getting wrapped up in 'the dazzle' as overbeading and over-bejeweling one's self is easy to do. The concept of the 1920s was certainly to have things that sparkle, but not to have a sparkle from head-to-toe.
And while some men may desire the pale pink three-piece that Leonardo DiCaprio dawned in the movie, those in the know of fashion would advise many men stick to the basics of elegance. Darker colors with straight-forward underlying patterns is the best way to go for 90% of those seeking style.
