Ask Shopbop: Styling for The Great Gatsby


Parker dress, Jenny Packham capelet, Deepa Gurnani headband, Vanessa Mooney necklace, Serpui Marie clutch, Schutz sandals.

The fashion world is anxiously anticipating Friday’s release of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. An American classic, the story has everything, including the best party scene in literary history. Inspired by the glamor of the Champagne-fueled revelry, Stylist Loni shares her advice for putting together a look even Jordan Baker would envy.

To get that Gatsby look, go for beads, feathers, gems, and slinky fabrics. Loose tank dresses with embellishments make a perfect foundation. Add a headband, layer on pearl strands, and reach for a structured small bag with a long chain or strap. Shoes crafted in satin or textured material look great, and don't shy away from a pair with deco-inspired accents. Accessories with polished metals, enamel, and jewels feel right, as do wrist-length gloves and cropped jackets or lace capelets. Complete the look with a bold lip and molded wave in your hair.
