With a “The Great Gatsby” remake coming out next year, it’s no wonder we’re seeing hints of Art Deco and “roaring” 20’s glamour everywhere; and the runway is no exception. Gucci has done its own take on the time period’s extravagant attire, creating beautifully designed gowns that take us back to an era of bootleggers and rascals. However, as much as we love Frida Giannini’s gorgeous designs, they are way out of the average girl’s budget. However, it seems someone was paying very close attention at the fall shows because mass-retailer, Express, took the high-end designs and made them not only affordable but modern and highly versatile. If you don’t think you are ready to go for the full sequined dress, there are tops and skirts in the same pattern that will look great with some of the basic black and white staples that are already in your closet; such as a black pencil skirt and a white sleeveless blouse.
- TOP: Express Art Deco Sequin Embellished Tank, $39.90
- SKIRT: Express Art Deco Sequin Mini Skirt, $59.90
- DRESS: Express Sequin Tunic Dress, $75.60
