Get a lesson in vintage fashion from Kiesza‘s new music video, “Heaven Ain’t Calling.” If you are wondering how to dress for a 1920s party, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in these visuals filmed at Poetry Jazz Cafe in Toronto, Canada.
Kiesza teamed up with songwriter and producer Sugar Jesus on this Dance-Pop collab, which is super exciting since it marks a big comeback for her. Moreover, there are credible rumors that they have been in the studio cooking up even more tracks for a full album coming later this year.
Authentic 1920s Aesthetic
As for the video, while it’s in classic black and white to set that retro scene, the energy is 100% modern dance music. It transports you right to the Jazz Age as Kiesza and her crew of flappers rock everything from beaded fringe dresses to glamorous headbands.
On the other hand, menswear gets some love too. You’ll see some sharp casual looks and bowler hats that drive home that dapper Gatsby aesthetic. Of course, it’s the perfect visual reference if you’re looking to know how to dress for a 1920s party.
So, whether you need outfit ideas or just a fun new jam to get your shimmy on to, be sure to check out the new clip until the end.
In terms of completing the look: two-tone oxford shoes and wingtips are ideal for both men and women. Long beaded necklaces and fingerless gloves add extra pizazz.
Likewise, don’t forget props like feather boas, pocket watches, and peacock fans. I truly hope Kiesza’s retro-tastic visuals serve you well to channel a bejeweled bombshell or debonair gent for your next 1920s-themed party.
It’s a whole different fashion style from her performance on Ellen a couple of years back when she rocked some rad 80s gear while singin’ “Passenger.”
