Fashion Friday: The Flapper Trend

Thanks to Baz Luhrmann’s film release of the much-awaited The Great Gatsby which hits Malaysian screens on May 16, 2013 be prepared to see the glitzy silhouettes of the roaring 1920′s into your wardrobe inspired by Daisy Buchanan, played by the delightful Carey Mulligan!

Think Coco Chanel. The revolutionary fashion lady was among the first to don and design the flapper trend back in the Roaring Twenties (1920s). Associated with jazz music, the romantic era after the devastating First World War era promotes freedom, especially for women. A perfect flapper girl has curled bob hair, smoke with a long cigarette holder, and wear calf-length shift dress with dropped waistline. Gone were the days of conservative femininity: nipped waistline and pushed-up breasts. Muted sequins, art deco beading, and fringe is becoming the new go-to ladylike embellishments.

With the remake of The Great Gatsby – the iconic 20s movie with the perfect depiction of flapper style, we are so thrilled to infuse a bit of Daisy Buchanan into our daily ensembles.
