The Gatsby Era - Pretty Polly's 1920s style

Pretty Polly 1920s style - The Great Gatsby era

From gorgeous embellished flapper dresses to elegant finger-curled hair styles. The roaring 20's was an era ooozing with style and has influenced fashion for almost 100 years.

Back in the 1920's, Pretty Polly was in it's early years (having been established in 1919) and sheer leg coverage was quickly becoming the fashionable look. The length of womens skirt and dress hemlines becoming increasingly higher and more leg was on show. During the period, silk and rayon seamless stockings were in vogue, with fully fashioned stockings first appearing in 1924.

With 2013 The Great Gatsby film making its debut in British cinemas today we have Gatsby fever! We're so excited to see the gorgeous jewellery, make up, hairstyles and fashion featured in the film. Take a look at our Pinterest Gatsby board for 1920s vintage style inspiration.

It wasn't until the 1940's that Nylon hosiery was available following the invention of Nylon by Du Pont in 1938, but stockings and tights made from this new innovative fabric with more elasticity took off in the 1940's and was even in short supply during the war - creating an even greater demand.

You can get the 1920's sheer leg look with Pretty Polly Nylons collection - using the brilliant invention of Nylon, we've created glossy vintage style hosiery with the glamour of yesterday and the fit of todays modern woman. With a slick gloss finish reminiscent of the 1920s - 1950's, the Nylons collection is Pretty Polly's best selling sheer tights collection.
