I’ve decided to only include films and not TV series in this series of posts, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t include a stylish lady who appeared in both. Sex and the City is my second favourite TV series (right after Friends), and even though all four women are style icons, Carrie Bradshaw is the biggest fashionista of them all. She is the most inspiring when it comes to style in my opinion, and even though she rocked some incredible outfits in the TV series, I’m only going to include outfits from the films Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010). I’m not sure which outfits are from which film, I’ve just chosen a few of my favourites.
The white dress with the huge flower is a classic Carrie outfit. It’s not the easiest dress to pull off, but she does it, and she looks great.
This outfit is one of my absolute favourites. I love the colour combination, and this is an outfit I would love to wear myself.
Another absolute favourite of mine. I love a good suit look, and that pink striped shirt with the white trousers and waistcoat is incredible.
Even with a more casual outfit, Miss Bradshaw wears a pair of insane heels. I love the light blue jeans, and her hair looks amazing.
It probably comes as no surprise that I love this pink dress (which has pockets!). I love the rather simple styling, and it reminds me that I should start wearing my long pearl necklace again.
Next in my ‘film style icon’ series, I would like to share my love for Pretty in Pink’s (1986) Andie Walsh. If you are into second hand clothes, Andie Walsh’s style is truly inspirational. It was really difficult to find good pictures of her outfits, but you’ll still be able to get an idea of how inspiring and stylish she is.
Andie Walsh is the essence of granny chic, which shows in most of her outfits. She is very fond of floral prints, cardigans and waistcoats, and cute accessories such as hats and dangly earrings. Her best friend, Duckie Dale, is a great style inspiration as well.
She is also the queen of pastel colours (especially pink, of course).
Her attention to detail is incredible. Some might think her outfits are a bit much, but I believe that more is more.
Her last outfit in the film is the iconic homemade prom dress. The dress really stands out among the other dresses at the prom, and it’s so Andie. It even has a modern twist to it with the high neck and off the shoulder style.
I’d like to start a series of posts about style icons from films. Watching films is one of my favourite pastimes, and I love being inspired by film fashion. I’ll start this series with the leading lady from one of my absolute favourite films; Holly Golightly (played by my favourite actress Audrey Hepburn) from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).
The most iconic Holly Golightly outfit is of course her little black dress paired with pearls, gloves, and big sun glasses. She made the LBD a wardrobe stable for most women, and I myself have been inspired by this look and worn a similar outfit at numerous costumes parties (here’s some pictures from the last time I dressed up as Miss Golightly).
One of my favourite Holly looks is this amazing all pink one. Even though we see Holly in a lot of neutral colours, she wears a couple of colourful outfits that are just stunning. This outfit speaks to me for several reasons, but the main reason why I love it is because of the colour (you probably know by now that I love pink).
Another colourful Holly Golighty outfit consists of this amazing orange coat paired with black and dark brown accessories. This look is very simple, but incredibly stylish.
Holly Golightly is not only inspiring when she’s all dressed up; this casual polo neck and black trousers combo is timeless.
The little black dress is not the only classic clothing item displayed in Breakfast at Tiffany’s; Holly Golightly rocked the beige trenchcoat as well. I used to wear my beige trenchcoat a lot, and now I really want to start wearing again.
