Breakfast at Tiffany’s: If this movie contributed three things to the world of fashion, they are: black dresses, trench coats and ballet flats. This look puts a spin on Audrey Hepburn’s classic look with a pink trench coat instead of a beige one, a looser fitting dress and some glittery flats. Don’t forget to pay homage to Holly Golighty’s signature pearls!
Grease: While dressing like you just stepped out of a '70s sitcom may not be in your best interest, taking some inspiration from the hit musical movie GREASE will keep your outfit cute, simple and girly. The yellow skirt, while not as long, is reminiscent of the one Sandy wore when singing “Summer Nights.” The white top is perfectly preppy, just like Sandy herself and it goes together with the white Keds that are like the ones she wore as a cheerleader. There are worse things you could do then add a belt to break up the yellow and white and you’re good to go!
Radio Rebel: This new Disney Channel Original movie has some easy to follow, totally wearable fashion trends that look stylish without being overdone. Tara sees to wear a lot of plaid in this movie, and she sure loves her beanie! She generally wears darker or muted colours (thus the jeans and t-shirt) and sports a heart shaped pendant necklace several times throughout the movie.
Footloose: There’s nothing like an ‘80s dance movie. There really isn’t. While the remake is good in its own right, the costumes can’t replace the copious amount of denim, rockin’ shoes and country chic that can be found in the original. All of these qualities can be found in the cute outfit bellow. If it’s too cold for a cami, replace it with a plain, long sleeved shirt.
Hugo: A magical story that’s a feast for the eyes, HUGO is the perfect movie from which to draw inspiration for an outfit with an old time-y feel that never loses class. Isabelle dresses a bit like a boy, so the shorts and oxfords refer to that. The pea coat and beret seem to be her signature pieces. The necklace is a cute reference to the necklace she has that fits the automaton.
Winnie the Pooh: The beloved story and cartoon series has been made into five movies thus far, and still never fails to warm the hearts of audiences young and old. The tank top looks just like Piglet’s body while the yellow shorts are like Pooh Bear’s. The adorable flower clip is similar in colour to Eeyore’s tummy. The sunglasses are orange (like Tigger) and red (like Pooh’s shirt.) To represent owl and the kangaroos, we have the brown sandals.
Pocahontas: It’s easy to dress the way a 21st century Pocahontas would thanks to the tribal prints and pieces that are currently in style. Feel free to replace the shorts with a skirt for a look that’s more girly.
The Hunger Games: THE HUNGER GAMES has been successful as a book, a movie and a source of fashion inspiration! The dress is similar to the one Katniss wore to the Reaping, while the boots and jacket are almost identical to the ones she wears in the hunting scene with Gale. For those not in the know, the apples represent the apple that Katniss hit with her arrow when trying to make a statement and scare the Game Makers.
The Wizard of Oz: The whole blue and white checkered look is far too overdone when it comes to THE WIZARD OF OZ. The pink skirt is the same colour as Glinda’s dress while the grey top pays homage to the Tin Man. Poppy coloured flats and lacy blue socks put a fun, modern twist on Dorothy’s magical shoes. Don’t forget Toto in the form of a doggie pendant!
Fantastic Mr. Fox: Cute little animals running around in ‘40s style clothing? Count us in! The shape and colour of the dress are evocative of the time period and colour scheme of the movie.
