Everyone from Cavalli to Etro and Marc Jacobs to Ralph Lauren embraced the 1920s trend for Spring/Summer. But no one has nailed it better and given it more of a contemporary feel than Gucci.

The unashamed glamour and sex appeal that the Italian brand is so renowned for is, surprisingly, a brilliant accompaniment for the girly nature of a 20s flapper dress.

The loose, waist-free silhouette loves lashings of sparkles and full-on fringing. The dramatic colour-blocking of black, white and bronze used by Gucci makes it a sure-fire head turner. Combine with slicked-back hair and bold, black kohl eyes for an anti-retro take on the trend.

River Island are bang on the money with this sequined and beaded number, while their T-strap heels will keep you on your toes should you choose to break out your Charleston moves.
