happy flappers

Apple shapes of the world rejoice, as drop waists have finally hit the high street! The Roaring Twenties is a HUGE trend this spring/summer, and with it comes flapper cocktail dresses, Art Deco embellishment and a hint of luxe. Many many designers showed these types of designs on last year’s runways, indicating that Baz Luhrmann’s remake of The Great Gatsby is not going to be just affecting what we go and watch at the cinema. I cannot wait for that movie. Anyway here’s a glimpse of what Chloé, Etro, Jill Stuart, Gucci, Charlotte Ronson, Victoria Beckham, Tory Burch, Alberta Ferretti and Marni showcased for the upcoming season:
