Boardwalk Empire Inspired Fashion

Do you watch HBO’s Boardwalk Empire? My husband and I are kind of in love with it.

From a fashion point of view, I’m in absolute heaven. I have a huge soft spot for styles from the ’20s and ’40s (in fact, I was totally inspired by it when planning my wedding). The looks are all so glamorous and feminine and sexy without being too in your face.

Even the hair and makeup are amazing. I love the whole package!

So, of course, I had to do a little “window” shopping…

I’m so in love!

But how do you incorporate ’20s-syle pieces without looking like you’re wearing a flapper costume?

The key is mixing in modern trends that ground you in the present.

Take a look:

I built this look around a flapper-style dress. The looseness of the top, the coverage and the pretty pleating give it a little bit of a ’20s feel. Add the cloche hat and you’re totally in flapper territory!

Too add a bit of edge and bring it into this century, I added a faux leather jacket and an arm full of sparkly bangles.

Next, I chose shoes and a necklace that straddle the line between super modern and vintage inspired to try and bring it all together.

I am so in love with this look! What do you think?
