Flapper Dresses, Fringing and Feathers! 1920s, Great Gatsby Inspired Looks From the Runway and Red Carpet: Shop the Trend Online

Spring 2012's art deco vibe was incredibly hard to ignore — we saw the jazzy, Great Gatsby-inspired trend on the runways from designers like Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and more — and it called to mind a glittery glamour that makes us want to attend a fabulous soirée with Daisy Buchanan, or do the Charleston with Josephine Baker. Art deco is a design style that started in Paris in the 1920s and flourished worldwide thereafter; it represents an elegance and keen attention to graphic details and strong, symmetrical lines, as well as embellishments like beading, feathers, and fringe. We're smitten with the '20s vibe this season, especially for a fashion-forward look for a night on the town. Heading out this weekend with nothing to wear? We suggest you take your sartorial cues from this drop-dead-glam decade.

  • Go for a drop-waist dress; it's a slouchy silhouette is especially good for girls who prefer to hide their midsection, and means you can carb-load at dinner!
  • If you'd rather try the trend in smaller doses, consider pairing a sequined tank with wide-leg trousers, or tucking a silky button-down blouse into a pleated skirt.
  • As far as accessories go, opt for layers of long necklaces, cute cloche hats, and linear, square-cut clutches.

Now that you're up to speed, click through to see our complete breakdown of this season's art deco trend, then shop essential pieces. Photo courtesy of Fashion Gone Rogue
