Roaring Fashion for New Year's Eve
Roaring Fashion for New Year's EveDecember 28, 2012
If—like me—you’ve waited until this weekend to pick out your New Year’s Eve attire, consider taking your fashion cues from two of the South’s most notorious bad girls: Tallulah Bankhead and Zelda Fitzgerald. They were fixtures on the scene during the Roaring Twenties —drinking, smoking, going a little mad along the way. And always dressed to impress.

The drop waist dress—otherwise known as the “flapper” dress—and Fortuny’s signature pleated gowns were wildly popular during the Jazz Age, and both trends are making a comeback on today’s runways. They are timeless silhouettes that make an impression worthy of the new year. And they're easy to dance in, to boot.
