Fashion Book: The Great Gatsby

2012 March 1

I know it’s cliche, but The Great Gatsby remains one of my favorite books. It was only a matter of time before I committed a Fashion Book post to it. The book calls to mind the excess of the Jazz Age more than any other cultural icon–sequins dresses, hats, cigarette holders, and bob haircuts. Maybe next week I’ll do a post for Daisy Buchanan, the ultimate dream girl, but this week, I wanted to do something slightly more unexpected.

Jordan Baker is Daisy’s friend, and arguably, the more interesting of the two women. She’s an avid golfer, carries herself with confidence, and doesn’t take crap from anyone. In my mind, Jordan would definitely be that rare woman who can carry off a white suit and sneakers, and look sexy while doing it.

    I’ve always loved The Great Gatsby and think Jordan is such an interesting character. (I’m not sure I should admit this, but a tiny part of me has always indulged in a little Nicholas Sparks-esque romantic cliche and wished that she and Nick would get together!) Your outfit really captures a modern day version of her.

    LOVE this look. I’ve actually always preferred Jordan as a character over Daisy, and I think you’ve captured a modern version of her style very well.
