Sure, the annual Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island isn't just an excuse to dress up in amazing 1920s (or 1920s-inspired) getups — the thousands of people who attend the annual event also get to enjoy live music, swing dancing and Prohibition-inspired cocktails. But the way revelers interpret the theme from hairpiece to heel is our favorite part of the weekend-long shindig. This year, we were particularly impressed by the headgear: straw hats, cloche hatsflowers, pins, brooches, headdresses and everything in between.
