Jazz up your style with Gatsby-inspired fashion

The extravaganza that is “The Great Gatsby” hits theaters Friday.

While we're not sure what we want to see more – Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan as Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, the fabulous fashions or the eye-popping art deco décor in the 3-D film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel – we're sure of one thing: Roaring '20s-inspired style has roared back to life.

For those who want to savor the flavor, a mint julep or gin martini from SideBern's will make your taste buds yearn for the glory days of 1920s America.

If you want to channel Mulligan's Daisy style, David's Bridal is serving up high-wattage glam with shimmering cocktail dresses and elegant evening gowns worthy of a real 1920s diva, while online retailer Unique Vintage turns up the razzle-dazzle factor with an array of flapper dresses, headpieces and vintage-inspired jewelry that pay homage to look of “The Great Gatsby.”

Movie-inspired spectacles, bags and shoes also are on style-watchers' radar.

Gents can go Gatsby at Brooks Brothers with looks from striped regatta blazers and velour vests to wing-tipped shoes and walking sticks, all part of a limited-edition menswear line inspired by DiCaprio's dapper character in the movie.

If jewels are more your style, online retailer Amorium Jewelry offers earrings, bracelets and other accessories that make it easy to get your glam on without breaking the bank. And luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co. debuted an opulent collection, some of which can be seen in the movie, that includes a spectacular daisy brooch of white diamonds, a Tiffany yellow diamond and platinum priced at $50,000.

And really, isn't that what the Gatsby experience is all about?
