The 1920's are back !

They're all coming back. We've seen the 60's, 70's, 80's.. and now it's time for the revival of the "Roaring Twenties".

Although 1920's pieces have briefly appeared on the catwalk over the last few years, 2012 seems to be the right time for the style to take off on a larger scale.
The most recent and major revival of 1920's fashion saw the flapper dress. Flapper dresses typically are loose-fitting dresses with embellishements such as fringing,tassels and beading.

Florals have been one of the favourite fashion themes in spring/summer collections for decades. And 2012 is no exception. Florals come this seasons mainly in light pastels as seen in the outstanding S/S 2012 collection by Ralph Lauren.

Feathered wraps and dresses were very common in the 20's and have been seen in several 2012 runway collections. The light , delicate and airy feel of feathers is more than perfect for the warm seasons.

Not only clothing from the 20's is coming back, this season it's all about the Bob-Hairstyle, The great Gatsby's, Coco Chanel and Jazz. Especially  accessories from the 20's are going to be big this season, so get out your pearls, feather headbands and vogue-cigarettes and celebrate the return of the 1920's !
