Nanette Lepore's Tips for Dressing for the Jazz Age Lawn Party

The Jazz Age Lawn Party returns to Governors Island this weekend, bringing with it plenty of partygoers dressed like they were plucked straight from the 1920s (or the roster of extras from The Great Gatsby). If you don't happen to own the perfect vintage beaded dress for the occasion, allow designer Nanette Lepore to recommend a few ways to do Jazz Age a little more modern. We stopped by her Soho store for a quick lesson earlier this week.
