Every year, we look forward to the TV specials and movies centered around the holiday spirit. We’ll show you how to decorate your wardrobe with inspiration from some of our favorite holiday flicks.
Take all of the most iconic looks and silhouettes from the movies to put together your outfit. Tweak the looks of main characters to fit your style and trends of the season. For the holidays, we think it’s always better to go a little more outrageous with your look. Casual has no meaning here.
Eloise at Christmastime
For a fun and chic New York street style holiday look, Eloise is your girl for inspiration. For a more literal take, put together a ruffled shirt, black skirt, suspenders and red bow. A cute little girl style coat is a great way to stay warm in the winter cold. If you want a look that is a bit more fashion forward, cross over the suspenders for X-shaped suspenders inspired by Gareth Pugh. Eloise is all about a youthful and timeless look that is just a little bit off and messy. Styling tip: keep your hair tangled and a bit wavy to emphasize your Eloise vibe.
Frosty The Snowman
Snow comes to life? The white trend has been going on for a few seasons now, and winter white peaked at Chanel’s Fall 2010 showing of faux fur and ice. While the show’s dramatic Yeti looks were not as popular (as in people wanting to wear them, they surely got a lot of talk) among the fashion crowd, white is still a great choice for a holiday look. Total white is a purely chic and daring way to go for subtle neutrality while being bold and noticeable at the same time. Combine different textures like fur, lace, and knits to create the best look.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
Mix patterns and shapes for a truly unique look fit for a Who. The Grinch is all about going wacky, and embracing the fun spirit of the holidays. Mixing patterns can be hard but the bright colors and prints can make your outfit stand out. Hounds-tooth and multicolor stripes really work together because one is graphic and monochrome, while the other packs color in a subtle way. Wide leg trousers are a modern choice for parties and events. Alternatively, go all out (with Cindy Lou Who hair to match) and sport every pattern known to man in clashing colors.
Nightmare Before Christmas
Christmas and Halloween mixed? Yes please. Inspired by the gothic story of a skeleton Pumpkin King discovering Christmas’ holiday joy, we put together two looks that were dark in manner but still kept the spirit of the holidays. Combine a long black skirt, striped tights, and a holiday print for a basic yet statement look. To add a more goth element to it, a collar with cameo will do the job. If dresses aren’t your thing, pants are a great option and keeping all the shapes long and lean connect back to the skeletal characters in the movie.
A Christmas Carol
Classic never dies, and the Dickens novel has been reincarnated as a movie over and over again. For this fashion inspiration, think classic British chic, coats and scarves, and muted dark colors. A red scarf screams holiday season and keeps you warm at the same time. Dark greens are a subtle way to bring in the holiday complimentary color scheme. For skirts, long hemlines hearken back to the carolers and their bustle dresses, and are on trend for the season. Try oxfords or vintage boots to complete the look, both are comfortable and flat but are still dressy enough for parties.
