What to Wear to a Great Gatsby Roaring 20s Theme Party

Great Gatsby Roaring 20s Inspired Clothing

Full of glitz, glamour, ornate details, and a true style all its own – what girl wouldn't want “The Great Gatsby” look? Whether you are planning a casual Gatsby themed garden party, fabulous, glamorous cocktail evening, or even attending a Great Gatsby costume viewing party, there are plenty of ways to add a flapper-esque flair to any look with the 1920s fashion inspired dresses and accessories over at ModCloth.

  • Details, details, details. Epaulets, pearls, rhinestones, and sequins were highly used during this time period to add glitz to an evening outfit.
  • Slender silhouettes. While you could still see a full skirt, long hemline, and high neck, the robe de style dress featuring a drop waist and straight cut was the most popular style.
  • Haute headpieces. To top off the entire look, add a whimsical & decadent headpiece from ModCloth. You can even DIY a fabulous headband with ribbon, feathers, and gemstones!

For more tips & tricks to achieve the perfect flapper-esque look, you can visit the ModStylists here: ModCloth ModStylists Will Style You Up!. The ModStylists can put together a look-book specifically for you!

The Great Gatsby Movie Viewing & Costume Party

The Great Gatsby Movie Viewing & Costume Party is our of our all time favorite themes! We absolutely love Great Gatsby themed Costume Parties.   Not surprisingly, costumes are required.  I always get flack from my husband when I suggest he simply wear a suit and hat.  After much conjoling, I finally persuade him to don a dapper classic tuxedo like the one worn by Leonardo DiCaprio in the poster.   Done!

An even harder problem is what should I wear?  So many options but I particularly love the very reasonably priced Anna-Kaci flapper dresses on Amazon.  To complete the outfits order a coordinating boaLong Satin Gloves, a Costume Cigarette Holder, a flapper wig or headband or hat, and flapper beads / pearls.

Game Board Costumes for Couples

The couple who plays together stays together!

We happened upon these great new game board costumes for couples (or groups or singles!)  The gals costumes are all cute and sassy and the guys, well shall we say they are rather “goofy.” We particularly like the his & her Operation costumes – in fact they inspired this post.  We can absolutely see a group costume of 4 teenage girls arriving in style as a set of games, Scrabble, Monopoly, Twister, & Operations.  We can even imagine adding a fun costume element to your Game Night Party.

Do not worry – there is still plenty of time to order and receive your costumes in time for Halloween!

Psy’s Gangnam Style Costumes

Gangnam Style Halloween CostumesPsy's Gangnam Style was the first video to hit 1B YouTube views!  What better way to spend Halloween than riding an invisible horse in unison with the entire Gangnam Style entourage. The toughest decision you have is whether to be the awesomely hilarious elevator guy, yellow suited dance star, or Psy himself! We did our best to put together ensemble options but this unique style is selling out fast. We'll continue to update your wardrobe options as they become available and remember, the way to truly master the Gangnam Style is to perfect the horse riding dance while holding that serious look on your face!

Venetian Mask Halloween Costume – Unique & Elegant!

Venetian Mask Halloween Costume - Unique & Elegant!Every once in a while I come across a picture or a photo that inspires me.  This one popped up on my Facebook feed.  Admittedly, I am extremely biased but my niece's gorgeous piercing blue eyes staring out from behind that incredible  Venetian blue and gold mask made me wonder if this Halloween rather than donning the usual scary costume or sexy fantasy costume we might consider  more refined, almost elegant Halloween attire.  I must admit, after my truly scary Halloween experience being stalked by a crazy dressed  in a Clockwork Orange costume, I get a bit freaked out by Halloween.  Sometimes I believe Halloween is used as an excuse for people to “try on” behaviors and personae that are unacceptable in every day life.   But I digress.

Light Blue Venetian Mask

The point of this post is to suggest switching it up this Halloween – rather than spend a fortune on a one wear costume, raid your closet or better yet buy yourself that long coveted cocktail dress you can wear again and again and add a stunning  Venetian mask. You can even create a couples Venetian mask that is both easy and fabulous or join forces with your girlfriends and together make a jaw dropping entrance.  (This would make a great teen costume too especially if all of your friends wore different but coordinating masks!!) Elegance is forever chic and  always sexy!
