With ROAR quickly approaching, finding the perfect dress is the most essential item to complete the perfect 1920’s look. If you have seen The Great Gatsby, then you know what to look for — something elegant but fun with lace, beading or flapper fringe. However, beware, for too much of any of these embellishments will make your dress look more like a Halloween costume than a fancy outfit.
Aim for a vintage look that is unlike the typical tight, short dresses usually worn to the spring dance. Modcloth.com is a great online store with many different styles to choose from. Modcloth has a specific section of their website for 20’s-inspired dresses. This site is great because you can read a ton of reviews on each dress and even watch videos or see pictures of girls who have bought the same dress. Shopruche.com is another awesome online store. This website, better known as Ruche, features and sells many unique designs that have an old vintage look but are great in quality. The company gets new arrivals in every weekend so there is always something new to purchase. They have many lacy dresses in different cuts and styles. Even if you do not find the perfect dress for you on this website, you can still get plenty of ideas from their 20’s-inspired fashions!
Both of these online stores offer perfect 20’s dress that will stand out among the crowd of flapper-themed outfits. If you are someone who enjoys trying on clothes, stop by your local Goodwill or thrift shop to find a one-of-a-kind piece. You will surly be ready for ROAR with any of these glamorous, classy dresses.
This year at the spring formal, boys are expected to go along with the theme just as much as the ladies. Guys, this means it is time to pull out some tricks to impress your date. This piece of advice includes putting on your best shoes, tie and, of course, the ultimate suit. Make sure your overall look is very polished but not too over the top — this is only high school, kids! Nice slacks and a matching coat will create a charming 20’s look. The shirt is where you can add extra style and flare. You can choose a simple, collared button-down shirt in a solid color or opt for a crazy, colorful button-down. However, before you make any final decisions, be sure to consult your date so you can coordinate the colors of your outfits to complement each other’s timeless looks.
