Great Scott! Debenhams has been inspired by a classic piece of literature, The Great Gatsby, and come up with a few classic pieces all of its own… If you love the twenties, feel inspired by the image of a flapper girl and simply adore to adorn your accessories with glitz, glamour and sparkle, then you’ll certainly think the Gatsby-inspired collection, is quite simply… great

If you love the look of the flapper girl, then snap up the dazzling accessories at Debenhams. Stilettos at Faith with sparkling straps, vintage-esque pearl necklaces with stunning stone pendants, drop chandelier earrings (very twenties) and dainty purses to swing from your wrist. Sounds tempting? We agree – and don’t even get us started on how much we are pining for the Phase Eight sequin dress…

Speaking of sequins, embellished dresses are the perfect way to evoke The Great Gatsby look. A drop-waist, chiffon and pleats aplenty all work for the trend, but make sure you keep away from long-length – the flapper story is a short one.

Red Herring have some gorgeous party dresses adorned with sparkle, in classic colours such as nude and black (ideal for this theme), while Lipsy certainly live up to their name as experts in eye-catching partywear, particularly with the sexy scallop-hem design pictured above.

Speaking of nude and black, we definitely don’t think we can resist this gorgeous pair of crochet peep-toes from Principles by Ben de Lisi, or this white purse from J by Jasper Conran. And, if we’re going to buy those, it would be rude not to indulge in a few more pieces of jewellery from the (very decadent and dazzling) No.1 by Jenny Packham range…

Wouldn’t it?
