Gatsby Style Wedding Fashion

Be a trend setting bride this wedding season!

Every bride is beautiful, but with these statement pieces from The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery, brides will do more than just stand out when they make that infamous walk down the aisle. This model is wearing a beautiful headpiece by Mystique and elegant teardrop earrings by Paradis. The Mystique headpiece makes a bold statement, while the Paradis earrings give the bride that traditional and timeless look. Considering the headpiece is such a breathtaking accessory, the simple but sophisticated earrings compliment it effortlessly.

Not only are these pieces trending today, they were also popular in the 1920’s. Considering the motion picture The Great Gatsby is all the rage now, these pieces cannot have more perfect timing. The movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Toby Maguire, and Carey Mulligan, displays the iconic styles of the Roaring 20’s. In the past, major motion pictures have had a big influence on what popular trends are to come. With this beautiful, Gatsby inspired jewelry set, the bride will not only look chic and sophisticated, but also stylish and show stopping.
