Fashion Forward: The Roaring 20's Style
Think style, grace, and elegance. The feminine, flowy dresses of yester-year are back and better than ever. Tonight, Jackie Johnson's taking over Fashion Forward. She's getting into the look of the 1920s.
(WSVN) -- Charlie Chaplin, Babe Ruth, even Mickey Mouse... All favorites of the roaring '20s.
But the best thing to make it out of the '20s... the fashion... Just take a look at Nicole Kidman at the Golden Globes.
"So anyone can wear this kind of style right?" asks Jackie.
" Anyone can wear this trend and it's very popular for the spring season," says Allison of Bloomingdales.
"They look comfortable," Jackie says. "Is that dress comfortable?"
The model says, "Yeah, that's the thing, nowadays you can move and dance in them."
At Bloomingdales in Aventura I got a chance to take a twirl in this hot new style.
"Allison, I love this dress," says Jackie.
"Oh, that looks great," Allison says. "I love the color."
"So what makes this '20s?"
"Well, the ruffles and the satin bows, it's a very feminine look."
Feminine, fun, and flirty.
"And what would you recommend this dress for?" Jackie asks.
"I would recommend that dress for Sunday brunch or a night on the town," says Allison. "You can definitely dress it up or dress it down."
Dress it up or dress it down. At Wish Boutique in Hollywood, they say the key is to put a new spin on the old classic.
"You can take a skirt, a ruffled skirt and wear it with something more modern, a T-shirt."
Or for a night out on the town, go for more detail.
"You can do like embroidery more in the evening unless you are throwing on like a fun top and make it into a halter."
Don't forget, wherever you wear it, you can accessorize-- try a strand of pearls or a beaded clutch... and you'll look like a 10 in your '20's gear.FOR MORE INFORMATION:
