Film and fashion always go hand in hand. However, sometimes that movie fashion – although stunning – can sometimes be a bit too much. Usually, those styles are well-remembered and often referenced, but you rarely see them recreated in the real world.
That said, there are other film styles that are not only stunning and timeless, but that have been recreated outside of the movie screens time and time again. Here, we’re going to mention 4 most iconic fashion styles ever captured on screen.
Zooey Deschanel in (500) Days of Summer
Zooey Deschanel is certainly one of the quirkiest and most unique actresses of the modern times. This talented young actress is already considered to be a fashion icon, with her unusual and somewhat edgy style. But what drove this point even further home are the outfits she wore in (500) Days of Summer. The outfits featured in this movie became a part of Zooey’s signature style. Peter Pan collars, sixties mod dresses, bold bangs and adorable flats are just some of the staples drawn from the movie that can be easily recreated in everyday fashion. On top of that, unique hair pieces and dainty jewelry only elevated further each and every look. You can easily recreate this style by checking out your local thrift stores and get similar jewelry if you click it here. The beauty of this style lies in its simplicity and that irresistible vintage vibe.
Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Of course, we simply can’t talk about fashion icons on film without mentioning Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The simple little black dress Holly Golightly (Hepburn) wore in the now iconic scene became a staple piece for any event. The simplicity of the piece makes it the perfect choice you simply can’t go wrong with, for any occasion. Depending on the cut and the style of the dress, you’ll most often be able to dress it up or down and make it work in almost any situation. Just like Hepburn, for that additional oomph, grab some oversized jewelry and a pair of statement sunglasses. By recreating this style, you can rest assured that you’ll be turning head left and right.
Natalie Portman in Leon: The Professional
The role of Mathilda from the movie Leon: The Professional was the first-ever role of the now well-known Natalie Portman. It’s interesting to see that this role is not only what skyrocketed this young actress in her career, but it’s also the role that inspired many future generations – style wise. Short bob, stripey shirt, short shorts and chunky boots are the staple pieces of this outfit. Of course, everything is topped off with a statement choker. This style became the ultimate inspiration for every Tumblr user out there, and is often recreated among the younger crowd. Even though this style may seem a bit too edgy for some, others seem to enjoy it quite a bit.
Jennifer Aniston in Friends
Finally, even though this next style wasn’t featured on the film, it did define an entire generation. “The Rachel” haircut is probably one of the most popular haircuts of all times, and it retained its popularity even to this day. The style choices of Rachel Green (Aniston) are not something too crazy or innovative. But they’re certainly extremely popular even today. We simply can’t decide which image comes to mind first, when talking about Rachel’s iconic style: the denim overalls often paired with Converse shoes and a simple white tank top; or the chunky-heel boots paired with a mini (usually plaid) skirt and a cute sweater. Either way, her style is – without a doubt – one of the most iconic styles ever featured on a TV screen.
Needless to say, these were just some of the most iconic styles we had the opportunity to see on screen. However, their simplicity and effectiveness is what makes them stand out. On top of that, they’re all quite easy to recreate, without running the risk of looking like you’re heading to a costume party.
