Ralph Lauren

Now that we’ve already inspired ourselves with some flappers from the past, let’s look at how some of the designers implemented those specific fashion trends into their collections for Spring/Summer 2012.

There’s a lot of drop-waist dresses, cloche hats and embellishments that will have you thinking you’re in West Egg just waiting for an invitation to one of Jay Gatsby’s lavish fêtes. Thanks to these designers, (and probably a bit of Baz Luhrmann too), you don’t have to be Daisy Buchanan anymore to dress like you’re living in the 1920’s. So learn the “Charleston,” stat and get ready to swoon over these modern versions of one of the greatest eras in women’s fashion.
