GG | The Story of Roaring 2013/14

Today I decided to dedicate my post to one of the greatest movies of 2013 The Great Gatsby. Once again we were all reminded of this amazing story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Roaring twenties, also known as Jazz Age, is an inspiration for those, who love elegancy and standing out from the crowd. Before you proceed reading old sport, make sure you turn on Louis Armstrong on your player. 
The Great Gatsby movie became an inspiration for fashion world. Many designers presented their personal view of how should the modern Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan look. In order to be a man of the story you should follow 5 simple rules: 
1.Dapper Dan haircut is an option for you. We are sick and tired of these simple haircuts from streets, improvise, experiment. Jazz Age was not about being a part of society it was about breaking rules of the society, this haircut will make you look both: expensive and different. 
2.Casual three-piece. 1920's made its way for the three part suits. It does give more style combination options, you can try different patterns, colours or approaches in order to come out with your personal piece.
3.Round framed glasses. This model of sunglasses was popular last season and it continues to be on the top of the trend this year as well. Round framed glasses will benefit your outfit with a slight accent, but remember that these frames still have different size, so make sure you choose the one, which best fits your shape. 
4.Colourful suspenders. Suspenders are a good option for those who are trying to pull their way out of being a shadow to becoming an icon, but are afraid of huge attention. Suspenders are noticeable only after you are without a top part of the suit, which means that you are left with a smart accent beneath.
5.The pocket watch. Good news for those who are bored with wearing simple watch on their wrist, now you can bring even more chic into your outfit having a pocket watch. Even though lots of pocket watches are still being made globally I definitely suggest taking a look into your local vintage boutiques as you might find a model, which does not only look good, but also tells a century old story.
That is it old sport. Roaring twenties can be a part of your wardrobe, only thing you have to do is buy these items from the list and download some jazz classics to your player.
