Taking fashion inspiration from movies and TV shows has been a tradition for decades and you can totally recreate looks from these!
Movies and TV shows are a big influence on us, not just with their storytelling but also because they have tons of fashion inspiration. We invest our emotions in these characters and completely fall in love with them which also includes the way they style themselves. A character’s look itself can speak louder than any dialogue and be an absolute trendsetter for an entire generation. Recreating looks makes you feel like a part of the character’s world and it’s totally worth it for all those super cool pictures we take for Instagram. Some might love a period-specific fashion or modern-day chic looks that are relatable and hit closer to home.
Over the years, there has been such a rise in films with fashion as their main character. All eyes are on the costumes and the thought that went behind them. We’ve seen some of our favorite actors pull off some iconic looks elegantly in these movies and TV shows. So here’s a list of movies and TV shows that you can add to your fashion mood boards and look books.
