5 STYLISH FILMS THAT WILL INSPIRE YOUR SPRING/SUMMER WARDROBE

When we settle down to watch a film of course we're invested in the plot, but when a film also has an exceptional fashion offering it garners our full attention. The big screen is where trends are created and leading ladies are immortalised for generations, after all. Whether you're into the OTT style of '90s cult movies or vintage classics with impeccable costumes, these are the films every fashion lover should add to their watch-list. Put down the popcorn and start taking notes...

Annie Hall

I-borrowed-it-from-my-boyfriend-chic doesn’t get more covetable than Diane Keaton playing the title role of Annie Hall. On and off screen Keaton became something of a style icon, bringing androgynous dressing into the spotlight with her penchant for masculine separates, waistcoats and ties. With tailoring and suiting a huge trend for womenswear this spring/summer, take your cue from Annie and opt for loose fits, oversized shirts and chunky brogues.

Pretty woman

The image of Julia Roberts in this iconic polka-dot dress is a regular style reference for a very good reason. There are plenty of unforgettable fashion moments in this film, from the red opera gown and rented rubies to the sophisticated terracotta short suit, but we’ll never stop wishing for our own polka dot dress at the polo moment – and we wouldn’t mind a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive either. Luckily dots are back in a big way for spring/summer 20, with the likes of Balmain, Carolina Herrara and Michael Kors all showcasing their take on the print. Wear yours with big shades and classic accessories, white gloves optional.

Taxi Driver

If Martin Scorcese's classic film about a vigilante New York taxi driver doesn't sound like a film full of fashion inspiration, then you haven't seen Jodie Foster's outfits. The movie may be controversial, but the style of its heroine, Iris, is undeniable. With fashion’s bout of '70s nostalgia still going strong, her look remains as covetable now as ever before. Think miniscule shorts (huge news on the SS20 runways at Chanel and Hermès), wide flares, sunglasses as bright and bold as you dare, and large-brimmed sun hats. We have her pegged as our summer style muse.

Clueless

While Cher Horowitz may have been clueless when it came to love, she was in no way ‘ensembly challenged’ when it came to her fashion choices. From Dion’s extensive hat collection (we have to give her snaps) to Cher’s white Calvin Klein slip dress ('it's a dress, duh') and that checked skirt suit worn with over-the-knee socks, the cast of this cult film schooled us in the all of the best trends of the '90s, which have, happily, made a triumphant return.

Paris When It Sizzles

Audrey Hepburn's fashionable friendship with designer Hubert de Givenchy created some of the most sensational looks in cinema (the black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s being the most iconic) but the outfits in this 1964 comedy are some of our favourites. The line-up includes delicious ice-cream shades in the shape of a strawberry shift, a pistachio-coloured skirt suit and a peach silk dress, as well as girlish, bow-laden hats and sweet, top-handle bags. We’ve just found our spring dressing muse.
