CREATING A GATSBY LOOK
*Have a passion for the era and really study it out. If you watch shows like Boardwalk Empire or Downton Abbey, the costuming and set design in these productions is right on target.
*If you're trying to get as close as you can to authenticity and your hair is long, wear it in a styled chignon. A hairstylist will know how to add those deep waves. If your hair is short try to style it into a bob. Again, a good hairstylist can Marcelle or style it to really look like you've been time traveling through the 1920s. Also great hairstyling lays the perfect canvas for adding just the right headpiece or veil. The model's hair in the picture below is actually quite long. Hairstylist, Kathi Rothkop of Salon Glam worked magic with it
* By all means seek out beautiful workmanship. True, the standard 1920s silhouette didn't flatter every woman's shape but it was an era known for incredible detailing on clothing like intricate smocking and hand embroidery, lace insets, pleats, draping, etc.
