Another great menswear look from the Jazz Age Lawn Party. Shorts and vests were the way to go – and the boating hat is very charming.
I think I will always love turbans, especially white ones. Blame it on Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice. It just adds an extra level of elegance to any look, as with this vintage silk floral dress and cute heels with socks at the Jazz Age Lawn Party.
Loved this lady with her This Side of Paradise bag. It’s just from Barnes & Noble, but so apropos for the Jazz Age Lawn Party. She also wears a vintage dress, cloche hat and elaborate false beaded eyelashes.
Vests have been a popular sartorial choice for men not just at this 1920s-themed party but on the streets of New York. Look for more of them when the weather gets cooler this fall.
This sporty outfit seen may look vintage, but it’s actually a mix of modern day Thom Browne, Ralph Lauren and J. Crew – and testament to how much the 1920s are currently influencing men’s fashion.
Pale suits were all the rage on men at this weekend’s Jazz Age Lawn Party. Crooner Gregory Moore, who would later perform with a troupe of Dreamland follies, even wore a white cape for the occasion. And of course, there’s one accessory you can’t do without at this garden party: a picnic basket.
At this weekend’s Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island, there was a surprising crossover between 1920s looks and goth in several of the guests. Both aesthetics are related to Steampunk and involve a lot of attention to detail, vintage, and a love of costuming. The mashup was pretty brilliant on this young woman, who wore a black vintage jacket with her black sequin shorts and black hat, nicely contrasting with cherry-red lipstick. Very cool personal style.
A vintage beaded dress looks great with ropes of pearls and a headband. The lipstick is spot on, too.
Some of the best outfits at the Jazz Age Lawn Party mixed new and old – like a bowler hat, suspenders, high waisted trousers and a plain V-neck tee.
Big band jazz by the Dreamland Orchestra might have been old fashioned, but it was certainly danceable. The vintage fashion came alive on the dance floor. More photos after the jump. (more…)
Many of the men at the Jazz Age Lawn Party wore knickers and argyle knee socks, a look that would have been considered positively relaxed and sporty in the 1920s. But men have it slightly easier than women when it comes to recreating ’20s fashion: vests, ties and newsboy caps like these are still being made today.
While it’s true that Coco Chanel popularized the little black dress in 1926, it was more for evening than for a summer garden party. Kudos to everyone who figured out that white was the standard 1920s attire for a hot summer day – like this vintage lace flapper dress with a beaded hem. All white in the summertime is still a chic choice today.
