Let Your Netflix Faves Inspire Your Summer Wardrobe
Take some fashion tips from Amélie and get your Parisian chic on.
Along with beaches, music festivals and daylight-saving time, one of the greatest things about summer is the fashion. (OK, mainly because pants aren’t required.)
If you’re looking to spice up your Instagram and stand out among the flower-crowned festival-goers, what better place to turn to for inspo than Netflix? From favorite movies like “10 Things I Hate About You” to TV classics like “Freaks and Geeks,” these throwback style statements will give your summer wardrobe a cool edge.
1. Chokers + Charm Necklaces
The 90s choker trend is still going strong in 2017, whether you want to admit it or not. If you’re bored of your old beaded choker, take a spell out of “Charmed’s” book and play around with textures like ribbon or lace. Or, take some inspiration from “10 Things I Hate About You” and opt for a cute charm necklace to accessorize your look.
2. Retro Dresses
Popular retailers like Topshop and Nordstrom are selling dresses with retro flair, proving this look is timeless. Between strappy dresses, cap-sleeve mini-dresses or boldly-patterned party outfits, find what looks best on you and experiment with fun colors and shapes. Heather Graham in “License To Drive” nails the 80s vibe. Unapologetically tease that hair and you’ve got a look.
3. Parisian Chic
Embrace your inner Amélie with quirky and colorful Parisian fashion. Like Amélie’s eccentric personality, stock up on frilly tanks and colorful basics, and mix and match everything?—?from polka dot cardigans and laid back maxis, to floral headscarfs and vibrant scoop neck tees.
4. Denim Jackets
Take it straight from “Scream”—denim jackets are to die for. They’re perfect to throw on over a tank or sundress during those cool summer nights. Plus, you can never have too many.
5. Graphic Tees
Graphic tees are essential to effortless fashion—they can easily be paired with high-waisted shorts or a denim skirt and serve as a fashion statement in itself. Whether you’re wanting to rep your favorite band, wear a sassy slogan that speaks to you or dress like Busy Philipps in “Freaks and Geeks,” you can find graphic tees at any local thrift shop, Target or high-end retailers like Topshop.
6. Colorful Sunglasses
Colorful sunnies are having a big moment in fashion right now. This retro look is the perfect summer accessory for any basic outfit. But before celebs like Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez Instagrammed their bold shades, our favorite 90s witchy girl gang from “The Craft” donned this Stevie Nicks-inspired look.
