How To Gatsby:
How to Dress Like Daisy Buchanan

newest adaptation of Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, the production team worked
closely with Miuccia Prada on the beautiful pieces Daisy wore. While not all of
us have the same budget range, we’ve got a few tricks on getting Daisy’s
impeccable trend-starting style. Remember ladies, it doesn’t have to be
costume-y. Daisy’s look may seem classic to us, but she could be seen as a
modern chick in her time!

Type of Fabric: Choose
beautiful silks, chiffon or even laces! The idea is fabric that drape
effortlessly around your body.
Outfit Details: Daisy’s
outfits stood out because of the gorgeous detailing. Pick pieces with soft
details, such as cascading ruffles, sequined accents, beads and even bows!
Fringes topped with faux fur stoles or jackets are perfect too. It’s all about
Accessories: Go all
out with gloves, and anything beaded! Look out for fans or shell motifs,
reminiscent of the Art Deco movement, which you can definitely find in thrift
stores. If not, go with statement pieces like a sparkling necklace, or
rhinestone earrings. Done!
Don’t Forget the Headpiece: Large glittering head pieces are a must to
pull the 1920s look together. If it’s too out there for you, go with sparkling
bobby pins or hair combs. Just remember to slick your hair back, for a
Footwear: We love the
shoes during the Jazz Age, nothing too high or wacky! Go with a modest heel, no
more than 3 inches. T-straps, or classic Mary Janes are perfect! If not, go
with classic nude colored pumps.

to pulling the entire look together isn’t just the glittery headpiece or fur
stole. Really, it’s about serving face! The Flappers of the 20s were women
ahead of their time.
Makeup Ideas: Try a
bold crimson lip against a creamy complexion. If you want to accentuate your
eyes, go for the smoky eye and thin brows. Click here for a tutorial!

Gents: How To Look As Dapper As
No matter what we think of Jay
Gatsby, his style was on point! There was no one who could get away with
looking dapper as he did in a pink suit, or look amazing in a cream suit.. in
the rain! It would be awesome if we all could get our hands on the Brooks Brothers
suits made specifically for Leonardo DiCaprio, but there’s a more budget
Preppy Accessories: Anyone can wear a suit, but it’s the
accessories that make it 1920s ready! We’re talking Panamas, Fedoras, Trilby or
even straw boater hats to make the look pop.
All In the Details: Gents, it’s the little things that made
Gatsby look so good. Pay attention to the texture of your ties and pin ’em down
with tie pins. We also love how cuff links and a colorful handkerchief in the
top pocket make any look complete. Remember, stick to Art Deco inspired pieces,
such as diagonal strips or geometric shapes!

suggest a three-piece suit, in a slim cut. Put on a crisp white shirt, a vest,
a clean jacket with high-waisted trousers. Run with any color you like,
contrasting prints are encouraged! If not, clean black pants with a white
dinner jacket work just as beautifully too. Don’t forget the bow tie!
and shiny, please! Black Oxfords are great while Wingtips in white is
a funky, and fresh addition to your look. If not, black patent shoes work
just as well. Whatever dressy and formal-friendly is good, keep your sneakers
at home please!

party people Gatsby will want at his famous glittering soirees!
