As Baz Luhrmann’s remake of The Great Gatsby is set to hit cinemas this year, vintage-inspired jewellery and flapper fashion will become even more popular.

The film is sure to inspire us ladies to embrace our inner flapper, a 1920s’ party girl, which includes frilly dresses and long necklaces.

A full-length green gown, much like the one worn by Keira Knightley in Atonement, complemented with a long, gold necklace and art deco ring is a great way of wearing 1920s fashion at a garden party or formal dinner.

For more informal occasions, a floral blouse, cream blazer and floor-length skirt accessorised with a long necklace or pendant is ideal.

Drop waists, fringing, heavy beading, metallics and cloche hats will also all reign supreme this autumn and winter, experts predict.

You can also add a vintage flapper twist to your modern outfits by wearing a long necklace, chandelier earrings and chunky rings with your ensemble.
