When we need some new fashion inspiration, what better place to turn to than the big screen? From the classically stylish Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to the quirky and offbeat Zooey Deschanel in (500) Days of Summer, here are some great outfit ideas inspired by some of OROGOLD’s favorite movie heroines.
Bonnie and Clyde
The Bonnie and Clyde movie is based on the real-life couple, who were a notorious bank-robbing duo along with their gang. Faye Dunaway played Bonnie, combining her tailored yet glamorous style with her feisty personality. You see Bonnie wearing a beret in several scenes, and this is a great way to add a touch of her character into your look, especially when paired with skinny jeans. One of Bonnie’s other signature looks is her black turtleneck, and there are definitely some ways to make this more relevant for today. OROGOLD recommends pairing it with a high-waisted skirt and a cinching belt, as well as some gladiator-inspired heels to bring a more dramatic edge to your look.
(500) Days of Summer
OROGOLD loves the character of Summer Finn, played by Zooey Deschanel, in (500) Days of Summer, mostly because of her offbeat yet totally relatable personality. Throughout the film, Summer is seen in some fantastic vintage outfits. To recreate her style, opt for vintage-inspired separates, such as high-waisted denim shorts paired with a floral top. OROGOLD also loves Summer’s unique take on the Little Black Dress – the Little Blue Dress! This is a cute alternative to the Little Black Dress, and the color makes it much more adaptable to be worn during the day, or in the summer. To bring more of Summer’s style into the dress, choose one that features some vintage elements, such as feminine details, lace or bows.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Breakfast at Tiffany’s, with Audrey Hepburn starring as the main character, is an iconic film when it comes to style, elegance and fashion. The pieces worn by Hepburn are simple but still breathtaking, and are always worn with the most fabulous accessories. Of course, the Little Black Dress features several times in the movie, and this is something that never really goes out of style. OROGOLD suggests updating your dress with some Hepburn-inspired accessories, such as a pearl necklace or a floppy hat, or even some black gloves. Give your dress a more classically sophisticated appeal by pairing them with some black patent slingback pumps. The pearls in that outfit would also look fantastic with a cropped trench coat, one that has been tailored beautifully, and some black fitted jeans, giving you a modern-day Audrey Hepburn look.
There are many different movies with some extremely stylish heroines that we can all take some inspiration from. Even if you don’t recreate their look completely, just bringing some unusual elements from their style into your own outfit can really give your look a completely different dynamic!
