The Great Gatsby: Fashion and Film

Posted 8 years ago by myetvmedia

Hat, hairstyles and grooming took on a special significance. Hair was cut and styled. Bobs, waves and spit curls were all the rage adorned with headbands, diamonds, pearls. Men might wear their hair with a centre part, well groomed and a clean-shaven look. Hats were an essential statement for everyone that defined their station and political attitudes. The fedora, felt for winter, straw for summer, The Borsalino, the grey felt hat, bowler hats, top hats with a silk band, derbies for the races and the cap – the Windsor cap, the beret, herringbone hunting caps, stiff blue gabardine caps for sports and yachting, leather flying helmets. Hats made to order for men and women became a symbol of opulence. Clothing distinguished the character both in the movies and in real life.
