QI'm inspired by all the 1920s fashion around at the moment and I'm looking for an outfit to wear to a big party that I have coming up. Have you any idea how I can get the look without spending a fortune?
A There are lots of 1920s-inspired pieces hitting the high street at the moment as this is a massive trend that featured on the runway at Gucci and Ralph Lauren.
AIwear have cute white tiered beaded-style flapper dresses for €67.50, while Biba, at House of Fraser, have a breathtaking dusty pink beaded dress for €207, pricier, but it looks like a genuine vintage piece.
River Island stock a cute drop-waist fringed dress that would be fantastic worn with T-bar sandals.
Try Penneys patent styles, a snip for €13. Or splash out on Office's super glam metallic versions.
For something a little different why not try asos.com's pretty playsuit with Peter Pan collar detail.
For accessories inject a dose of The Roaring '20s into your outfit by adding a long tassel necklace such as AIwear's bronze version.
