If there’s one fictional character that indisputably serves up great style, it’s Daisy Buchanan from “The Great Gatsby.” Sure, her morals might be questionable at best and her choices in partners leave a lot to be desired, but her sartorial sense? Spot on.
Daisy epitomizes what we love about the roaring 20s: drop waists, body-skimming silhouettes and plenty of beading. The decade was a time for opulence, glamour and drama and our girl Daisy is the poster girl for just that.
This spring, dress designers have been all about the luxe feel of the Jazz Age. From the showstopping drop waists at Vela to delicate beadwork at Eve of Milady, Daisy Buchanan would be all about the romantic flourishes of the season.
Dramatic Drop Waists
Drop waists aren’t just for Lady Mary’s wedding dress. It’s a tricky style to pull off: unlike a fit-and-flare, a drop-waist draws attention to your hips as opposed to your waist, which can be both a bad and good thing! The NC Sposa gown (left) would do wonders for girls with a similar waist-hip ratio, while the curve-hugging bodice of the Vela gown (right) would be a hit with girls with hourglass figures.
