We're counting down the days until The Great Gatsby hits theaters on Friday, so this outfit of the week is inspired by the old school glamor the movie portrays. The roaring 20's are long past, but this look combines great new pieces from ForElyse.com
with vintage inspired details for an elegant outfit that's perfect for work or a date to the premiere!
We dressed Angela in classic black and white, starting with a simple pencil skirt like the Zip Off the Old Block
skirt from Alythea. We tucked the Lacey Streak
top from Sis Sis into the skirt for a slimmer silhouette and a touch of lace. The top mixes classic and modern style with sheer shoulders and a feminine lace panel, so charming accessories are needed to invoke the retro style.
To really emphasize the 20's style, have fun with flirty accessories- sexy shoes, an adorable bag, and eye-catching jewels are great ways to work some glitz and glamor into your outfit. We pulled the Giant lace pumps
from Speed Limit 98 and the Speed Dial clutch
- the lace and quilted patent leather lend themselves to the luxury of the time and are always on trend. A big cocktail ring (we chose a golden flower), some stacked bracelets, and a statement piece like the Snake Charming necklace
pull the look together.
