1920s Style: How to Wear it in Fall 2012

In the past the big revival of 20s was seen between 2007 and 2008, but it was relatively short lived. This could be explained by the overly produced garments in the particular style by the high street brands. However, the world of fashion is again seeking for the inspiration in the past and one of them are the 20s.

The main thing about 20s revival in the fall of 2012 is refinement. Forget about the fringed dress, feathers and bobbed hairstyle with which you used to associate the 20s fashion. Rather take a look at the latest collections by the leading fashion brands that tended to adapt the 20s-inspired elements, but in the subtle and contemporary way.

Dresses
Don’t write off the 1920s signature flapper dresses since they don’t disappear completely. But this time they come in the modernized version and are complemented with the trendy shoes and accessories.

Issa London along with Ralph Lauren and Jil Sander included the interpretations of the flapper dresses: it is a plain satin chemise in their latest collection.

Coats
But the real spotlight is the 20s-inspired coat. Besides being the most convenient way of reviving the 20s era, it is also the freshest one. And in the result we get the oversized coats with the baggy cocoon cuts that look chic and elegant. You may either wrap them around your body or leave unfastened.

Daks included some long coats, while Max Mara created the cream coat in the 20s style without copying it completely.
