Styling 101: Great Gatsby Fashion

The Great Gatsby is everywhere right now – Between the movie finally coming out in theaters to the actors appearing at the Cannes Film Festival to the endless number of magazine editorials out there celebrating the unique, eye-catching styles from the era.

Personally, what I’ve always adored about the 1920’s is the jewelry – Art Deco is by far my favorite style so when they announced that they were remaking The Great Gatsby I just knew there would be stunning new collections put out to celebrate.


{Jewelry can be shopped online at Sasha Maks Vintage, pieces will be available at The Factory through Summer, or you can contact for additional details & private appointments}

So how do you get a little bit of Gatsby in your life without looking like you’re auditioning for a period drama? Try layering long chains or beaded necklaces or find an oversized vintage lariat that’ll really give your look an authentic retro feel.

Do you love this style jewelry as much as I do? Check out this other Great Gatsby inspired look that we put together last Fall – Styling 101: Gatsby Girl.
