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.
