Street Style: Jazz Age Edition
This weekend Governors Island went back in time to the 1920s for one of its annual Jazz Age Lawn Parties. Michael Arnalla and his Dreamland Orchestra provided the soundtrack, and experts and amateurs alike took to the dance floor to dance the Charleston. Ladies and gents (and even tots) really committed to their Gatsby-esque looks, and we even spotted some seamed stockings despite the sweltering heat. Those ladies get bonus points.
Get Inspired: The Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island
Every summer New York's Governors Island hosts a couple Jazz Age lawn parties, where orchestras play and people dance, dressed to the nines in 1920s-inspired garb. (Sometimes, it's actual vintage from that era. See this image from 2008's celebration, courtesy of the Sart, for proof.) Several Fashionista contributors are planning on heading out to the other island this weekend, so we decided to round up our favorite Jazz Age-inspired pieces. These are fun to wear regardless of the occasion.
