The Roaring '20s are way over, but thanks to The Great Gatsby fever, we've seen a definite uptake in flapper frocks, Mary Jane steppers, and Art Deco jewelry that shows no signs of stopping. The trouble, however, is that a mashup of those pieces can make you look like you're wearing a costume from your local costume store's clearance bin. The trick is to keep it simple, and we've got 15 drop-waist picks that serve as the perfect starting points.
From an inexpensive pleated frock from Forever 21 to an investment-worthy flared skirt from Donna Karan, the pieces ahead will allow you to channel a modern flapper without the Halloween vibes. So, go ahead, do the Charleston and click away!
