We’ve complied a few different ideas from modern trends, inspired by twenties fashion, to help you get ready for the big party. Putting together the perfect twenties outfit is easier than you think. Let our quick guide help you get dressed to impress in no time!


 If you’re thinking suit and tie, you’re definitely on the right track. But there’s more than one way to wear this classic look. Many of these pieces may already be available in your closet!

This is a classic Jay Gatsby look, fit for any glamours twenties party. Suit up for the big night with a black bow-tie, dress shoes and maybe even some Gatsby Inspire cuff links?

If you’re looking to attend the party in more casual attire – throw together a navy blazer, khakis, dress shirt and your favorite tie. Some white or lighter color shoes will help give you that Long Island flare.

Looking for a more business casual look? Take on this everyday twenties look with some brown dress pants, a classic bow-tie, vest and dress shirt. Give it that extra vintage feel with white and brown shoes.


Dresses were a dominant fashion piece in the 1920s for women. Embellished, sequins, frill and tiered dresses were particularly popular. 1920s fashion has definitely made its round through the decades and perhaps its strongest return can be found in women’s fashion today.

This golden piece from Anthropologie is great example of the sequined style. This style of dress is perfect for a twenties decade party, as well as modern day cocktail parties.

This lovely embellished dress from Lulus is another great example of fun twenties fashion. It’s modern day mint green gives it both a modern and vintage flare.

Feel as though you’re on Long Island with Gatsby and the Buchanans in this summery twenties inspired outfit. The hat is an iconic piece of women’s fashion throughout the twenties and is making its way back into fashion trends today.

Light up the room just like Daisy Buchanan! A long, formal embellished dress,  along with a delicate headband is sure to steal the show.

We hope this quick guide helped inspire some ideas for the big party! We can’t wait to travel back to the Roaring Twenties with you on June 1st. If you haven’t gotten your tickets to the party yet, be sure to do so at:
