It’s beginning to look a lot like…the 1920s?

Now that fall semester is over, I’ve enjoyed hitting the pre-Christmas sales, and I can’t help but notice there’s a lot of 1920s going on out there! And I don’t mean drop-waist dresses and Louis heels–ready-to-wear is giving a nod to quirkier moments from the 1920s.

For example, this quilted skirt from Anthropologie, which looks to be a reimagined version of this Lanvin dress from ca. 1924:

And Elsa Schiaparelli’s famous 1927 Cravat sweater, brought back to the mainstream by  J Crew (available in the of-the-moment chic oxblood hue, too!):

I wonder what other vintage-inspired treasures I’ll find tomorrow!
