With everyone talking about the upcoming movie remake of The Great Gatsby, 1920s style has returned in a big way. Flapper dresses are a hot topic in the party dress circuit this holiday season. Drop-waists, dramatic beading, sultry colors, and layers of jewelry are key elements of the look.

These glam dresses can be flattering and eye-catching on a variety of body types and their usually-modest lengths make them appropriate for multiple occasions. So we say, go for it!  If you need a little more Boardwalk Empire style in your own life, here's one way to wear this look to a party:

Flapper dress outfit: Red and black beaded dress, tan dress coat, large jeweled earrings, low-heel black mary-jane pumps

Product Information: Dress - Modcloth, Coat - In Dress Me, Shoes - DSW, Earrings - Pier 1
