Who doesn’t love a good throwback? When dressing up for special occasions, I like to have fun with fashion and have found that vintage-inspired pieces can be a great way to create icebreaking conversations fit for the most stylish of social butterflies.
Take this jersey dress with drop-waist detail by Bailey 44, for instance (if sold out, shop here and here). The tiered beaded hem with fringe screams Great Gatsby vibes and is sure to lure you and all your new friends out onto any dance floor.
For me, when wearing a dress that is of mini-length, I like to cover up my top half so I layered the thin shoulder straps over a turtleneck with pearl cuff detailing. I also added the most shimmering tights that I could find in an attempt to outshine the New Year’s Eve ball as it drops. This look could also work with a pair of metallic pumps. However, by wearing black over-the-knee boots, the eye is drawn to all of the sparkle and festive fringe beading.
Below, you can see more of this vintage-inspired dress, which is perfect for shimmying and shaking in the new year.
