The long weekend starts tomorrow and that only means three words: Netflix and chill. Some of your friends may be sipping some margaritas by the beach, but every now and then, a girl’s got to feed her fashion spirit too—and we’re showing you the best way we know how. Because who doesn’t love a good film that instantly inspires your wardrobe?
So much of the story telling lies in the clothes, whether it’s to define a character or to represent a decade. And if you’re the type of girl that wishes “Fashionable Movies” were added to the categories, you’re in the right place. We sifted through Netflix for 8 fashionable films (other than Clueless and Breakfast At Tiffany’s) to add to your queue. Whether you’re looking to master your ’90s style book or need a little inspiration for your next travel on the coast of Italy, we suggest you go on this stylish movie marathon this long weekend.
The Great Gatsby (2013)
If you’re a lover of headpieces, cloche hats, flapper dresses, and all things ’20s, Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby is without a doubt a visual feast. A dapper Leonardo di Caprio is just the cherry on top!
Jawbreaker was the Mean Girls of the ’90s—only it’s a twisted story involving the murder of their best friend a.k.a the “teen dream”. The popular clique wore everything from crop tops and slip dresses to chokers and tinted sunglasses— basically every ’90s fashion formula every girl is wearing today.
The Craft (1996)
Another ’90s classic is The Craft, a movie about a group of teenage girls who practice witchcraft. Besides the excessive eyeliner and the dark lipsticks, the wardrobes were big on the whole grunge meets goth meets Catholic school girl look.
Pretty In Pink (1986)
An ’80s style icon, we can’t help but fall in love with Molly Ringwald in this Cinderella story inspired teen flick. But while we’re not exactly fans of her pink preppy-meets-grandma looks and her now-iconic prom dress, James Spader’s linen suits and Jon Cryer’s quirky outfits instantly stole our hearts.
The Tourist (2010)
From her elegant gowns to the monochromatic dress, wrap, and gloves combo, Angelina Jolie’s old Hollywood style—inspired by Hitchcock movies—is enough to make you watch this rom-com-thriller.
The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
There’s a reason The Talented Mr. Ripley won an Oscar for Best in Costume Design. Based on the novel of the same name, the psychological thriller set on the Amalfi Coast in the ’50s featured vacation-ready outfits that make us daydream about our own Italian summer wardrobes.
Sex and the City 2 (2010)
The fashion on Sex and the City may be over the top, but that’s what we love about it. Watching four women do their own thing and feel confident in something like a T-shirt and ball skirt combo in the middle of a market (which tbh is totally wearable today), help us feel more brave with our fashion choices.
Dazed and Confused (1993)
This coming-of-age film not only gave us iconic lines like, “Alright, alright, alright” by Matthew McConaughey, but it gave us fashion pieces from the groovy era that are still relevant today. Whether you’re into denim-on-denim or hippie fashion a la Mila Jovovich, there’s ’70s style inspiration for everyone in this movie.
