Since the new Great Gatsby trailer came out a few weeks ago, I’ve been swooning over just about everything in it: the actors, the music, and of course, the fashion. Wouldn’t a 1920s glamour wedding just be so
chic? From a 1920s wedding dress and a fabulous fascinator
for the bride to vintage 1920s style dresses for the bridesmaids, it could be quite an unforgettable affair!

What to look for in a 1920s-inspired Bari Jay bridesmaid dress
This dress’ layered effect is totally reminiscent of flapper-style fringe. And the best part? The skirt can be removed to convert to a knee length option! Don’t you just love a good twofer? The 1920s brought about many changes in the world of fashion. The hourglass shape that had previously been so popular was slowly giving way to a new ideal: the boy-shaped body. A flat chest and slim hips were in, and women even went so far as to bandage their bustlines in order to fit into the new straight, shapeless shift dresses.
Since I’m sure you don’t want to look like you wandered out of a time capsule, you’ll want to keep a couple of things in mind when considering how to mesh vintage 1920s style dresses with a modern aesthetic: Necklines and hemlines:
Look for scoop- and v-necks with simple tank-style straps. Mid-length hemlines with embellishments like beading, sequins, pleats, or other texture are also a must. Accessories:
Cloche hats were huge in the 1920s, as were headbands bedecked with beads, and art-deco-inspired jewelry. And the furs—oh, the furs! Hit your favorite vintage shop for a stole to wear.
