1920s Inspired Fashion

Today’s post is about art deco dresses (though not art deco wedding dresses: they get a separate category). These are just some gorgeous vintage looks I’ve come across that I feel like would be totally perfect for a 20s themed engagement party or art deco engagement shoot.  And not just dresses, but a skirt and top too!

I’ve had my eyes peeled for art deco inspiration ever since I started this blog, and when I saw these guys I had to bookmark them. I keep wishing I had an awesome Great Gatsby themed event to wear all of these too. I’d do multiple costume changes. Though, to be honest.. who needs a themed event?! These are pretties I would pretty much wear anywhere, anytime I got the chance. Starting with this 20s style Marchesa gown. I would wear this to McDonalds if someone would buy it for me. I would wear it to the movies. I would wear it to the drugstore. I would wear it anywhere and everywhere. Crystal and beading and oh-my-goodness take a look:

…this art deco silk flapper skirt by Alberta Ferretti. Um, YES PLEASE. It looks a bit like pleating in the photo, but no: per the description, it is in fact flapper fabulous “knotted fringing.” Add that gorgeous art deco crystal pattern at the top, and you’ve got the perfect roaring twenties look.

These next tops come to us via Miss Selfridgeicon, and they are just lovely. On this first one, I was just so struck by the color and that pearl beading… it’s gorgeous!

And this is another gorgeous look: a sheer art deco blouse, also from Miss Selfridge:

Pretty as a picture, with roaring twenties peacock colors and intact sequins, this is a gem of a find (and they’ve got a lot of interesting sequin-trivia as well!).
