Gatsby Dress is based on the movie "The Great Gatsby" which was based on the novel of the same name by F Scott Fitzgerald. Both the novel and the movie focus on how bootleggers and other such criminals were being millionaires. After the First World War, during the roaring 1920s, the story is set when the United States was celebrating new levels of prosperity. One of the most memorable parts of the novel and movie are the parties that were hosted by the millionaire Jay Gatsby. So, the Gatsby girl dress is based on the flapper costume that was in fashion during the 1920s.
The flapper fashion has some unique characteristics that include a shapeless shift dress which was shorter in length in comparison to previous fashions, short sleek hair or bob hairstyle, makeup that generally applied in public, and smoking with a long cigarette holder. The limb exposure represented a seditious nature of a person who craved to dance the nights away.
Another essential feature of the flapper costume is that even the middle class girls of society were able to be conventional with high fashion owing to the simple creation of the flapper dress. But, the rich women were still able to highlight their difference by draping silk clothing with unique and high embellishment.
One example of the Gatsby dress is the 1920’s dress which is made up with a feather headpiece and a flapper dress. One can add suitable accessories like flapper beads, the characteristic long cigarette holder, stockings, and wig. Another Gatsby dress is the flapper dress which is made from a crepe satin and trimmed with black velour and sequins. One can also add a matching headpiece with a sequined brim.
Another example is the Black Gatsby Dress, a sequin flapper dress trimmed with sequins, fingerless gloves, and a matching headband. At the Deco Haus, there are many Gatsby and flapper dresses to pick from. To choose a costume you must select your color, size and accessories. Once your dress is selected you can just be a dancing girl the night away!
