An Ode to the Flappers: NYE Style

This year for NYE, some friends and I found a fabulous 20s themed party at Austin’s Omni Hotel. The event was the perfect excuse to dress up, drink champagne, and stay indoors on an uncharacteristically cold Texas night.

I’ve never met a theme party I didn’t love, and I’ll go just about anywhere if I can wear faux-fur. After the party invite was accepted, the hunt was on for the perfect outfit that gave an appropriate nod to both 2018 and 1928.

I love this pleated faux leather midi skirt- super trendy and timely, right? Funny story I bought this THREE YEARS AGO! Seriously! I actually bought it during one of my summer sojourns in Paris at BHV Department Store in Le Marais!

It’s one of those pieces that hung in my closet and stared at me, I could never find the right way or right occasion to wear it! Until now. Pleated faux-leather midis are EVERYWHERE right now. They say that Paris is years ahead in fashion, this is proof that it’s true!

Gracia Midi Skirt- Rue La La

DKNY Knee Length Skirt

Shine Lace Bodysuit

I found this lacey metallic bodysuit at Nordstrom completely on accident and was struck with inspiration. I loved how modern and trendy the outfit was while still alluding appropriately to the Gatsby era.

I paired the ensemble with strappy nude heels, black tassel earrings, a faux fur stole, and some layered faux pearl necklaces.

I’ve linked these items and a few others that you might like!
