Though you'll never get the chance to party at Jay Gatsby's West Egg mansion, you can certainly incorporate Art Deco-inspired pieces into your modern wardrobe. Don't want to look like you're stepping out in costume? Heed this advice from Malena Martinez, owner of the vintage boutique Malena's Vintage: "For everyday Gatsby wear, you need to pare it down and mix it with stuff that's reflective of you and not just reflective of a movie," she says. "I'll mix a crazy beaded necklace or a piece in my hair with a normal t-shirt from H&M and a pair of jeans."

Here, in honor of today's blockbuster premiere of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, Martinez shows us ten '20s-inspired pieces from her West Chester boutique that would surely get Daisy Buchanan's stamp of approval.—Courtney Conigliaro
