7 Styles from the Silver Screen...

Have you ever been inspired by a film, with its characters changing the way you dress? From the eighties to the noughties , here we count down our top fashion inspirations from film...
7. Palo Alto
An adaptation of James Franco's book, this film captures the essence of the 21st Century teenager through characters, music, and most importantly, style. Palo Alto is full of laid-back, no-fuss and effortless styles - see Jack Kilmer and his character's floppy hair and relaxed attire for more.
6. Ginger and Rosa
As oppose to your typical in-your-face, candy-coated story about your adolescent in the 1960's, Ginger and Rosa has a more subdued and realistic idea when it comes to portraying teenagers in film. Want to dress like the duo? Think knits, Normcore and no-frills style, and - oh yes - and a good turtleneck.
5. The Craft
Now let's talk about The Craft - a great film with even better style. See the girls transition from more pristine and tidy attire to more gothic garments, all topped off with chokers, minis and leather. 
4. The Heathers
What's not to love about a girl and her boyfriend going around killing their obnoxious peers? In The Heathers, we are submurged into the world of big hair and (even bigger) shoulder pads that is the 1980's. However, Winona Ryder and her 'friends' manage to pull off these looks effortlessly with preppy-edginess.
3. Lolita
Surprisingly enough, here we are taking fashion inspiration from a precocious 12-year old, Dolores Haze. Lolita, though with its controversial and slightly disturbing storyline, offers some great outfit choices through its young female protagonist by way of crop tops and sun-dresses, as well as a selection of floral and checked prints and patterns.
2. Wish Upon a Star
This Disney Channel classic is one you may or may not have heard of. I came across this film after going on a Youtube hunt for various 90's teen movies. The outfits in this film definitely have some Spice Girl- esque elements with many appearances of pastel lip colours, mini skirts, and platform Mary Janes.
1. Clueless
Our number one spot could nothave been given to any film but Clueless. The cult classic offers so much sartorially and has greatly influenced how people dress over the past couple of decades. If you have not seen this film (which we consider to be an offence, no, a crime), expect to see perfectly co-ordinated outfits, including plaid two-pieces and a tight mini dress....its an Alaïa by the way.
We hope you have enjoyed this post and will see you soon. Make sure to follow us on Bloglovin' and Lookbook.
