Gatsby inspired pearls with a modern twist


Sumptuous sets and dazzling costumes are some of the hallmarks of a Baz Luhrmann production and the recently released film The Great Gatsby does not disappoint. The visual splendor of the film alone is enough reason to see it in theatres!

I’ve always adored 1920’s inspired fashions — headbands, drop-waist dresses, and yards and yards of fringe! But, one of my favorite looks from the film is the long pearl necklace. Worn in ones or twos, knotted, or embellished with ornaments, this is a look that is timeless as the story of Jay and Daisy.

I’ve highlighted three variations on the traditional pearl necklace above. These are elegant roaring 20’s inspired pieces with serious style, plus a bit of extra panache for 2013.

I wonder… are you adopting any Gatsby style into your wardrobe this spring?
