I have always had an obsession with flappers and Art Deco from the 1920s, so I am especially happy to see the dropped waistline come back into fashion. This age is known for the disappearance of the corset. With the growth of the women’s movement, Fashionista’s opted for narrower silhouettes that gave them a boyish figure. With this in mind, it is no surprise that the dropped waistline gained popularity. Not only does this shape add to the visual impression of height by lengthening the torso but it makes for a perfectly relaxed work outfit.
Today’s Fashionista shows how simple it is to accessorize a look that will go from work to drinks with friends. To make an impression, she rightfully chose a multicolored necklace which added a playful charm to her basic black dress. A statement necklace is an easy, high-impact trend that is worth buying into; it is a simple, yet powerful styling accessory. Finishing off her look with nude booties makes this outfit look super fresh and tasteful. The small wooden heel softens the bold black and gives her even more height.
So how can you create this 1920s style without looking like you’re wearing a costume? First of all, don’t be afraid of popping into a vintage store. This shape is easily created by altering your mom’s totally ’80s dresses hanging in the back of her closet, like this Top Of The Class dress. But to replicate this Fashionista’s outfit, try this Black Drop Waist Raglan Short Sleeve dress with this Colorful Charm necklace. Not only do I adore this look but after seeing today’s Fashionista, I have a few new dresses I’ll be trying out as well!
