Wouldn’t you love to step back in time and dance the night away at The Great Gatsby‘s mansion? Naturally, you and the other guests would dress the part in beautiful 1920s inspired Great Gatsby dresses, headpieces, shoes, and jewelry. 1920s Great Gatsby dresses were all about sparkle, beads, and floating chiffon. The very short fringed flapper dress was not “in” when the Great Gatsby was written in 1922, but for a ’20s themed event today why not show off those dancing legs? Authentic Great Gatsby dress styles are the drop waist midi dress, tiered skirt gowns, hanky hem dresses, and velvet wrap dresses. Prices range from cheap Halloween store Great Gatsby costumes to elegant beaded Gatsby style dresses for formal affairs.
