From movie screens to real life, we’re all into stealing looks that leave us an impression. This isn’t about Halloween costumes based off characters but actual ensembles you can pull off daily when you’re heading out to a study group, brunch with the girls or lads and hey, even for a date night. We’ll be referencing classics, cult and new wave films so let’s have a look.
- The Little Black Dress (LBD)
You cannot go wrong with this one. Every girl’s must have dress is in reference to the one worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. A classic and timeless movie, setting Audrey Hepburn as a fashion icon to many, the LBD is great for any occasion be it casual or formal.
2. The Leather Jacket
Grease everybody, Grease. Sandy’s sleek leather jacket and that sweet flirty off shoulder top is mesmerising. Paired with a simple pair of black leggings or jeggings and you’re off to a great day out. Don’t forget to put on a bold red lip for a confidence boost!
3. The Boyfriend Blazer
Any girl’s cult classic movie — Heathers. This is where it all began. The infamous red scrunchie scene stirs every teenage girl in the 80’s. Three Heathers & One Veronica were defined as squad goals back then. Their matching shoulder padded blazer outfits can be seen and worn as boyfriend blazers now.
4. The Parisian Stripe
Perhaps, the reason why the term Parisian style is almost always accompanied by a striped top somewhere is because of Jean Seberg’s style in Jean-Luc Godard’s movie Breathless as an American student living in France. Think slim fitting chinos or skirt, a striped top and ballet flats (or switch up to heels!).
5. The Crispy Chic
Take cues from the movie Coco Before Chanel and you’ll see why there is a time where menswear became borrowed by women as part of their outfits. Notable looks to steal include Audrey Tautou’s tailored white shirts, fitted blazers, a variety of fabrics and of course, there’s a striped top in there too.
