BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S
Sexy yet vulnerable. Elegant yet vibrant. Yes, we are talking about none other than ‘the’ queen Audrey Hepburn who portrayed Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a very modern film set in the 1960s. “I should be as stylish as Holy Golightly even if that’s all I can contribute,” said Audrey Hepburn in an interview. Her wardrobe is simple, elegant and iconic in the film.
One thing to keep in mind while rocking the outfit themed by Holy is keeping the outfits minimal and putting on that extra accessories, more is more! Consider investing in faux pearl necklaces, oversized sunglasses and hats.
Some of the best movie outfits she is seen owning are the double-breasted orange wool coat, the beige trench coat and how can we forget that little black sleeveless satin dress which she pairs with multiple accessories namely long black gloves, cream bow and alligator shoes. It’s all about accessory trends!
We are almost there, just go with the bouffant backcombed hairstyle and that’s it. ‘moon river, wider than a mile, I am crossing you in style someday.’

A fun fact about Clueless is that it is based on Jane Austen’s Emma which she wrote about 200 years ago. Sorry for making you feel ancient but just like the movie the style portrayed by the protagonist is timeless too.

Pair a plaid notch collar jacket with knee-high stockings ( a forever mood) and finish it by accessorizing it with a hat. Remember her iconic breakfast outfit? It could be your look on boring Mondays, just invest in a white laced sheer smock top with tie front.

CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC
Rebecca Bloomwood played a character who sported a colorful, bold, energetic, voluminous, and electric style. Most of her movie outfits are pink to make her stand out. There’s no harm in saying that pink was the color that ruled the era of the 2000’s, so when in doubt just buy something pink.
The designer of the movie is Patricia Field, the one who provided iconic looks to the characters of sex and the city and ugly Betty, naturally, fashion is the most powerful feature of the movie. To style like Rebecca, the must-have is a green scarf (she is known as the ‘ girl with a green scarf ‘ in the movie ).
The key point to keep in mind is to dress in colors and make a bold statement. Wear a mix of trendy Japanese clothes and pair them up with vintage pieces. Wear a ton of colors and amp up the outfit with fun accessories. Studded jackets and heels give you the extra edge.
The holy grail for pink movie outfits! If you aren’t the kind of person to wear neutral, you should definitely adopt Elle Wood’s style, without giving it a second thought. It’s wonderful how she never disregards her color (hot pink) from sorority party to nightwear and work wear.
Though Elle Wood’s said ‘whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed’ you can rock any color you want to, pair up colored tinted shades with leather skirts of the same tone. Ensemble a pink shirt with a plaid skirt of the same color.
A fluffy or furry purple bold jacket can be a layering over anything ! wear Sparkly accessories and you will totally look the part, be it belt, chokers or hair accessory. Remember, make it all as girly as possible.
