'The Great Gatsby' causes 1920s fashion frenzy

Shorter dresses, extravagant jewels, new hairdos and dapper suits -- the 1920s was an intriguing time in fashion for women and for men. And thanks to lust-worthy looks and a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Isla Fisher, Baz Luhrmann's buzzed about film adaptation has caused a frenzied fashion revival, even though it doesn't hit theaters until May 10. Here, some options for recreating the glitz and glamour of the Roaring 20s, because as a Long Islander you never know when you could score an invitation to a party on our "Gold Coast" from a modern day Jay Gatsby type. -- Compiled by Brianna McMahon
