A little wave of Jazz Age

That hairstyle so synonymous with the Jazz Age – that bobbed, waved finger curl that’s an inseparable part of 1920s fashion – is one that few attempt and fewer master in the busy world of the now. But it doesn’t have to be despairingly complex, and it doesn’t have to be all-over. Note this shoot by photographer Andreas Kock: Milly Simmonds’ hair involves slick finger waves at the front section, but the rest of the hair is left flat. A much less involved take on the style than attempting a full head of curls.

Set against blue sky and grass dotted by headstones, it’s styled by Emma Thorstrand into Gothic-inspired outfits that suit the surrounds. Black, black, more black, lace and sheer fabric and heavy leather belts make up sultry yet dark ensembles that are strict and modern against the vintage-inspired hair. This is one way to sprinkle a little feeling of the roaring ’20s into a distinctly modern look.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
