The 1920s posed a glamorous decade of change within the society of fashion. Hemlines got shorter, necklines plunged deeper and the silhouette got ahead of the curve instead of shying away from it. It’s not difficult to pull fashion inspiration by the beautiful beadwork, fringe and feather accents of the time. Especially when a lot of the trends are being revamped and restructured to fit the today’s style and times – plus, when is art deco ever a bad idea?

India’s having a big moment in fashion right now. Katy Perry made it THE hot spot for a destination wedding last year, and the Spring 2011 runway presentations of Thakoon and Haider Ackermann bore an inspired palette of rich, vibrant colors from the region. So keep this trend in mind in the months to come and stock up on bangles, ikat prints, jewel tones and a fun mix of bright colors.

Halloween is but a week away…! Who wouldn’t love a holiday that requires a dress code?
