How To Pull Off Sarah Jessica Parker's Great Gatsby-Inspired Dress
Sarah Jessica Parker is known for taking fashion risks. She did after all play the biggest fashionista ever on Sex and the City. So when she stepped out in this metallic, semi-daring Naeem Khan flapper dress in London last night, we weren't surprised.
And in true SJP form, she nailed the Great Gatsby-inspired look without looking like she went shopping at the local Halloween store. But I guess that's what you get when you're one of the most stylish chicks in the world. So how does a normal person pull off period style dressing? It's easy! As long as you follow these simple tips.
- Play down your accessories. If you're going for a bold, dramatic dress like SJP's here, keep everything else basic—opt for neutural footwear and understated jewelry, for example.
- Simplify your hair. Wearing a period ensemble? Don't go for period style hair. We love SJP's cool (and totally 2013) straight locks.
- Keep it modern. No matter what you're wearing, keep it fresh and of the moment. While this dress is flapper-inspired, the strapless detail and sheer hemline make it totally modern.
