With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to start looking for costume inspiration. If you missed our last post on how to dress like the ultimate flapper on Halloween, you can check it out here. If you’re looking to dress like a dame from a more recent decade, you’re in luck! We’ve put together a list of the Top 5 vintage fashion movies to give you a little bit of inspiration.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Everyone is familiar with this iconic Audrey Hepburn movie based on Truman Capote’s novel. This is the story of a young woman in New York City who meets a young man when he moves into her apartment building and makes for one of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic fashion looks.
Amelie is a fanciful comedy about a young woman who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her, creating a world exclusively of her own making. The movie is shot in over 80 locations throughout Paris making the movie a work of art in its own regard.
The Great Gatsby
Perfect for those who are a lover of the book and the 1920s, The Great Gatsby features gorgeous beaded gowns, flapper attire, and extravagance. Shop some of our gowns, perfect for a Gatsby costume, here (now 20% off for Halloween!).
Coco Before Chanel
Fashion icon Coco Chanel is honored in this title and you can honor her too! Coco works as a seamstress by day and a cabaret entertainer by night, then she meets a wealthy heir and becomes his lover and fashion consultant. Tired of the flowery hats, tight corsets and yards of lace that define women’s fashion, Coco uses her lover’s clothing as a starting point to distill an elegant and sophisticated line of women’s clothing that propels her to the top of Parisian haute couture.
Something’s Got to Give
Because, if you have the opportunity to be Marilyn Monroe for a day, wouldn’t you be? Throw together an outfit outside of her traditional white swing dress for something unique that only other vintage fashion lovers could truly understand.
There you have it, dollies! We hope this helps inspire your Halloween costume! x
