Boardwalk Empire Style Challenge

We asked bloggers to create a roaring 20′s inspired outfit based on the fashion of the hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire. Much of the fashion that took place in that era is similar to our pieces here at Paul Fredrick, vintage classics, but with a modern twist. We reviewed the posts and thought they were all very well done. Here are a few of our favorites:

Many designers are looking to the casual styles of the 1940s and 1950s for inspiration. Think peak lapels, spread collars and high-waisted, pleated trousers.
