My fashionistas, are you already on a summer shopping spree? I know I am! Discounts are everywhere. The word SALE really makes my wallet thin;) So, if you have been wondering what to add on your summer shopping list-then read this post and get inspired to dress like a movie character. There are plenty of summer movie fashion trends to get inspired by. What is so great about them? Well..when you have The Great Gatsby to draw your inspiration from, it is indeed GREAT! In my growing up years, movie fashion trends have always interested me, when I have no accessibility to hight-street or high-end designer collection, I used to cut pictures of movie stars from fashion magazines who may have started a trend and If i happen to like it, I went to my local tailor shop and ask him to make one for me as it is. From buying the fabrics, laces, sequins or borders to paying attention to the cuts and lines, I did it all at the age of 14/15. But time has changed. I live in a city now which is known, for the consecutive two years, as the most fashionable city in the world. You name anything, it is available in the next high-street store. The one summer movie fashion trend that the fashion industry is going ga ga over is the headgear worn in the film- The Great Gatsby.
What better occassion to don an elegant, royal, ladylike piece of head acccessory than a friend’s ”Headgear” themed birthday party! I have this friend from my academia connection who happens to look younger in every passing year. He is a Gemini. A born fashionista and a complete cool company to be with! He is also very smart in embarssing people on his own birthday party!;) How? The receiving gentleman at the door was calling out every single guest’s name with a prefix-an adjective. On my arrival, he shouted ”Fashionista Ms. Tanusree Ghosh”.
If you have been thinking peter pan collars are just passé now, I say no they are not! Yes they have been probably around for couple of seasons now, it is always fresh to look at when you team them up right! I love this sunshine yellow hue I am wearing. This dress is so Chanel-esque, loved the leather collar and great lines! A super duper budget buy, you bet! Never underestimate an ”Advance collection” of a pocket friendly high-street label!
