The Look Of The Past Is Now The Look Of Summer: GATSBY STYLE

The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel written by American author F.Scott Fitzgerald the Gatsby follows the life of characters living in the fictional wealthy town of West Egg, Long Island in the summer of 1922. The story of The Great Gatsby is written around a young and mysterious bootlegger millionaire Jay Gatsby, and his obsession for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. The Great Gatsby explores themes of resistance to social change and upheaval, creating a Jazzy portrait of the Jazz Age Era.

Here is a outline of the The Great Gatsby; the summer in 1922 begins, and Mr. Gatsby is known for throwing the most extravagant and lavish parties. Daisy Buchanan has caught the eye and heart strings of Mr. Gatsby, his extravagant lifestyle and wild parties are an attempt to impress Daisy, he secretly hopes that she will one day appear on his doorstep. Gatsby manages to arrange a reunion between himself and Daisy, by asking Nick to invite Daisy over to have tea at his house, without telling her that Gatsby will also be there.


Here is a small pointer for you, Daisy and Gatsby are familiar with each other as they had courted before, but after the awkward reunion at tea, Gatsby and Daisy re-establish their connection and begin an affair. Daisy however is married to Tom; Tom grows increasingly suspicious of his wife’s relationship with Mr. Gatsby. At a luncheon at the Buchanans’ house, Gatsby stares at Daisy with such undisguised passion that Tom realizes Gatsby is in love with her.

What’s interesting is that Tom himself is involved in an affair; however he is deeply angered and outraged by his wife’s infidelity. Tom arranges for the group to drive into New York City, where he confronts Gatsby in a suite at the Plaza Hotel. Tom forcefully declares that both he and Daisy have a history that Gatsby would never understand; he then declares to his wife that Gatsby is a criminal whose fortune comes from bootlegging alcohol and other illegal activities.


I thought, I better stop there that story is a real eye-opener on the changes of fashion and how the demographically social ways and groups began to change. I have added slides from Harrods of London as they are currently showcasing great summer looks for the ultimate ‘Great Gatsby’ 1920’s fashion lover.

The Victoria Beckham Lace and Jacquard dress, with a rose pink lace bodice matched with a lilac jacquard diamond print skirt, shows the immaculate and dainty use of both lavish materials placed delicately together to produce a subtle pastel coloured dress.
 The dress is perfect for summer, and that perfect summer occasion, teamed with sandals and a oversized clutch. The Anja Shoes are from Kurt Geiger, matched with Celine Sunglasses and Mawi Small Crystal Spike Pendant is on my must-have lust list, but add the lasting touch with the Lanvin Mirrored Box Bag.
