Great Gatsby Inspiration: Carey Mulligan for Vogue

Great Gatsby Inspiration: Carey Mulligan for Vogue

If I had to pick any decade to live in, I probably wouldn’t pick the 20s. If I got to cherry pick the best bits from the last century, I’d take the drugs and rock and roll lifestyle from the 60s, the multicoloured bomber jacket from the 80s, the Super Nintendo and denim dungarees from the 90s, and victory rolls from the 50s. But the 1920s? I’ve just never been inspired by that time period.

Flapper dresses, feathers, art deco, long smoking devices and gangsters; nothing about this decade moves me. But then I saw the Vogue shoot with Great Gatsby actress, Carey Mulligan…

I still don’t see the 20s having a place in my wardrobe (apart from my 20s vintage opera coat), but if this decade means owning an Oscar de la Renta two piece like Carey’s below, then I’m all in.
