Trend Report: Art Deco

Art Deco glitz and the roaring 20's has captured the attention of the fashion world, yet again.

On the spring 2012 RTW runways, esteemed fashion houses like Gucci and Ralph Lauren included 1920's inspired gowns and separates.

In terms of black tie appropriate dresses, Monique Lhuillier Art Deco Embroidered Gown cannot be beat. This 1920's inspired gown is breathtakingly beautiful in silver chiffon with Art Deco crystal embroidery. The beading on this gown is truly spectacular.

Derek Lam included a beautiful black drop-waist art deco beaded dress in his cool, contemporary collection.

And, let's not forget Etro and Emporio Armani - both of their Spring 2012 collections included 1920's dresses based on their own interpretations of the period.

The 1920's were replete with optimism, glamour and definitely a new attitude towards fashion!

Inspired by this trend? Add art deco jewelry to your look.

Wearing art deco jewelry is an easy way to try the trend - I really like Lulu Frost's art deco inspired jewelry: Lulu Frost Art Deco ball earrings (fabulous, sparkly, and under $150)
and also Lulu Frost for J. CREW Deco bangle (under $100 & ultra-versatile).
