Party like a flapper!


party like a flapper

While window-shopping before Christmas, I had a reflection. In mainstream fashion, it seems that New Year’s Eve is the only occasion when wearing sequins is à la mode.

Personally I like to add a little sparkle to all my outfits (and end up unintentionally doing so more often than not… kids, glitter is impossible to get rid of).

The end of the year seems the perfect occasion to go a little decadent – and what’s more decadent than a Great Gatsby-inspired, 1920s-themed outfit? Here you have some inspiration to help you channel your inner flapper:

Rule 1. Show those legs!
Rule 2. Loose waist hides the post-Christmas happy belly (not that it needs to be hidden!)
Rule 3. Make it sparkle!
Rule 4. Sensible heels mean you can dance all night!
Rule 5. Reuse Christmas tree decorations for a fun outfit!
