With the highly anticipated Baz Luhrmann adaptation of The Great Gatsby finally here, we can’t wait to see the twenties roar once more this season as Gatsby fever grips the nation.
With the glamour of the jazz age capturing the decadence of the twenties, we can’t wait to see ringed silhouettes, luxurious velvet and floor sweeping dresses dripping with sequins – and help you get the look.
You too can achieve that Daisy Buchanan effect with Phase Eight’s new Collection 8 range – a twenties inspired evening dress collection with a fresh, contemporary twist.
Perfect for a black tie event, shimmering embellishment and eye-catching embroidery add drama and excitement to the classic full length silhouette, with each piece in the collection evolving as an individual statement. Delicate straps and sheer paneling evoke a feeling of sensuality, whilst fishtail hems and fitted bodices are reminiscent of the decadent glamour from a bygone era.
A key look in the jazz age, fringing from this navy dress adds instant drama to your outfit, with tassels that elegantly swing and flutter from side to side as you enter the room.
Nevertheless, make an unforgettable entrance in this violet evening dress with exquisite textured tapework embroidery and shimmering sequin embellishment.
Remember – lavish long gowns adorned with embellishments were popular party attire in the jazz age – so this hand beaded delicate lace evening gown fits the bill perfectly. Pair with a low bun and bright red lipstick to complete your Great Gatsby look.
Your Great Gatsby look is not complete without those all important finishing touches. In a decade that roared with exuberance, the bolder the better – think feathers, pearls and sequins.
An easy way to tap into the twenties trends is by accessorising your outfit with a headband and small clutch. Go all out for lavish 1920s style by throwing on this luxuriously fabulous shrug, perfect for after-dark revelry.
