We went to the Melting Pot for New Year’s Eve, because fondue and NYE just kind of go hand in hand… well, all of the waiters and waitresses had on 1920’s outfits, it was really neat to see all the inspo that night in their outfits. Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge was kind enough to invite me to be the co-host for The Fab 40’s and today we are doing The Fab 40’s Meet the Roaring 20’s! Bring the 1920’s into the 2020’s!

Now, back to The Fab 40’s!!!
The Fab 40’s is a group of five stylish fashion bloggers from around the globe. Each month they choose a different theme and invite a guest blogger also in their forties to join us. This group’s goal is to take on style trends and show how we each interpret and incorporate them into our own lives. With six widely varied views, you are certain to find something that speaks to you each month and encourages you to continue to have fun with fashion after 40.
So, how did I bring the 1920’s into the 2020’s for my outfit? Well, it seems (to me) that a lot of the 1920 trends are still trendy now. Neutrals are still BIG right now as are metallics (give me all the gold, baby!). Glitzy headbands and barrettes are still popular in the 2020’s. And, a bold red lip will never go out of style. Now, I don’t know about elbow length satin gloves, BUT… I couldn’t resist! My daughter is in competitive dance and she’s always wearing satin gloves (and, I have to use roll on glue to keep them on!). And, fringe skirts… yes, these are so fun to wear, especially if you have a night out of dancing planned. I have on a pair of nude fishnet tights (which, I don’t think you can see in these photos), but I still enjoy wearing my fishnets. And, a faux fur shawl is perfect on a snowy night. After doing this challenge I thought, wow… it is amazing how so many trends hold throughout the years! Now, this outfit may be little over the top for the 2020’s, but I see so many of the same trends still!

Dee really made her 1920’s look work for the 2020’s! I love the glittery beading on her purple dress and the fur trim on her suede shrug. So many great details!

Suzy is rocking this 1920’s to 2020’s look! Those wide palazzo pants are so chic and I love the statement her necklace gives the outfit. That floral jacket is velvet, which gives the outfit a rich and polished look. And, how cool that she thought to add the removable faux fur from another coat as a piece to finish off this look! Brilliant!
