Channel the on-screen glamour of The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan, most recently played by Carey Mulligan, with a flapper style dress.

Fringing, beads and sequins feature on the lead character’s costumes throughout the film and it’s easy to emulate the ornate looks of the era with a few modern day purchases.
