Women are known for having the tendency to skip comfort, especially when the ultimate goal is to achieve a flawless head-to-toe look. This usually translates to wearing heels despite the amount of time spent walking or standing easily surpassing the first bearable hour, or forgetting all about headgear when the temperatures start dropping at a considerable rate.

5 ways to indulge in the 1920s trend – without looking like you’re in costume

Suffice to get lost in the pages of “The Great Gatsby” or to have at least watched Baz Lurhmann’s vibrant adaptation of the same book to become instantly fascinated with the Roaring Twenties. Unlike any other decade, the 1920s have a fantasy quality to them that ended up turning the flapper into a romantic notion every woman wants a taste of. The years of 2007…

15 jewellery pieces to make you look like a fierce jungle queen
