Great Gatsby Bridal Style Inspiration {Flapper}

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

The Great Gatsby premieres this weekend!

1920s style is already influencing fashion, and, when brought to life on screen, it’s sure to inspire.

In honor of the era of Jazz, Flappers, Art Deco, Prohibition, and a major shift in women’s fashion, we’re sharing Gatsby-inspired bridal style in a two-part post, starting with Flappers!

 

Great Gatsby movie 2

 

World War I was a catalyst that ushered women of the time out of restrictive Victorian customs. Shedding corsets, gowns, long hair, and prim ways, many emerged as Flappers.

They drove cars, rode bicycles, cut their hair in bobs, dyed it black. Wore bright lipstick and rouge, sported short dresses. Partied at and smuggled liquor to speakeasies. Danced the night away doing the Charleston and the Shimmy!

So, you can see why a Flapper’s bold style is rich inspiration for a bride whose modern aesthetic leans toward edgy.

Infuse the Flapper’s audacious spirit into your wedding day look beginning with a bright makeup palette, and, of course, a bridal ‘do influenced by the era’s popular Marcel wave. Go short with a fabulous, fringed gown, or stay long and choose a daring, sophisticated frock made for dancing.

Now for the best part – jewelry and hair accessories. In a nod to our muse’s iconic pearl necklace, work with a mix of crystals and pearls…and lots of them! Layer glittering CZ and pearl bracelets, don gorgeous Art Deco chandelier earrings, then top it all off with a feather fascinator or striking double headband finished with a sparkling broach.

Modern + Chic Bridal Style {Inspiration}

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Wondering how you can enhance your chic, modern bridal style while maintaining a timeless, elegant feel?

Begin by creating a beautiful balance of classic and contemporary through hair and makeup. Focus on a fresh-faced palate, then add a bold pop of lip color or touch of drama at the eye. As for your ‘do, think clean, but striking, like a sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art.

Round out your bridal look with gorgeous accessories that offer a twist on traditional. Bold, architectural-inspired CZ earrings, runway-ready bracelets, and delicate crystal hair combs with an inventive take on customary motifs.

Pink and Gold Glam {Inspiration}

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Delicate pink and luxe gold are a match made in bridal style heaven!

Just like Marie Antoinette, think feminine, opulent, and bold. Glamorous touches like a clear and gold crystal bridal hair comb and a vintage-inspired Swarovski-encrusted cuff bracelet are a divine combination, especially when paired with a wedding gown of the palest pink (embroidered in gold, of course).

When planning your wedding reception, gild your soft pink hue with details. We’re thinking lush flowers, decadent macarons and place-settings that would make any elegant queen’s heart sing.
