Think sparkle and beading for a glitzy yet classic look that harks back to the Roaring 20s.
The 1920s have to be one of the iconic decades in the style stakes! After years of war and austerity, out went the ankle length gowns, the bustles and the restrictive high necks and in came the beading, the fringing, the short flapper styles and the celebratory attitude.
Now we’re seeing brides looking back to 100 years ago to draw inspiration from the revolutionary 1920s, looking to the hedonistic vibe of The Great Gatsby for a theme that takes in glamour, Art Deco, flowing champagne and chic gowns that don’t stint on the detail.
This timeless Jazz Age style is everywhere in bridal gowns at the moment, but why not incorporate it into your bridal party as well for a very rewearable cocktail look that features sparkle, geometric patterns and flutter sleeves? Think gold and silver beading in zig-zag and/or sunburst motif-type patterns, clean lines, sweeping curves and non-floral laces!
