Hallow-Weekly Feature: Cool and EasyPosted: October 14, 2011 | |
In the spirit of dressing up for Halloween, I’ve decided to come up with a weekly feature highlighting awesome outfits worn by female movie characters this month. Every Friday, this October, I’ll showcase one outfit that would be perfect for recreating for a Halloween party (or really anytime at all, but I just like to use Halloween as yet another excuse to dress up).
Unfortunately, this isn’t a list of the most iconic costumes in film, but it will include some well-known outfits.
Today’s outfit: Jo’s black ensemble from Funny Face (as worn by Audrey Hepburn).
This outfit is having a moment. Even though I have yet to see Funny Face, I remember this outfit from various still shots and advertisements such as the jazzy Gap commercial that brought the skinny pant look back (remember when Gap had the coolest commercials?). More recently, Beyonce featured this look in her new music video which features a wide range of fashion inspirations.
What I love about this outfit is that after all these years, it remains current. You can’t go wrong with a slim-fitting black top and pants to match (you can decide if you want to wear it with white socks, though). Also, since I prefer wearing flats over heels, I like how this look is good for a day (or night) of walking in the city.
So, if you’re looking for a cool and simple outfit, this might be the one to grab (or find in your closet–no unusual accessories required).
