For this week's edition of 10 More Movies for Fashion Inspiration, we will be looking at the fashion from the 1999 film, The Virgin Suicides. The movie, directed by Sofia Coppola, tells the story of the five Lisbon sisters who are growing up in the suburbs during the 1970s. A group of boys try to piece together the Lisbon sisters' story and attempt to learn about the mystique surrounding them.
The Virgin Suicides is very ethereal and the fashion fits with the otherworldly vibe. The fashion in The Virgin Suicides is breezy and effortless with lots of simple dresses and sandals. The film features a muted color palette and lots of delicate floral prints. The Lisbon sisters walk the fine line between childhood and adulthood and their outfits reflect that.
If you want to channel the simple and ethereal style of the Lisbon sisters, check out these four outfits inspired by The Virgin Suicides:
Outfit #1: Playground Love
The weather is finally getting warmer and this outfit is perfect for a beautiful spring day. The lightweight dress has chevron stripes-- a very popular pattern in the 70s, so it definitely has that Virgin Suicides vibe. Some large-framed sunglasses and heeled sandals continue the warm weather look, while the colorful coral ring adds a sweet hint of color.
Outfit #2: Sweet and Comfortable
This outfit would be great for going out to lunch, running errands, or for any other casual daytime event. I'm in love with these high-waisted shorts, which would look even better paired with the button-up floral top. The woven sandals add just the right amount of height, while the matching purse is big enough to hold everything you need for the day. The Lisbon girls never over-accessorize, so just add a dainty locket necklace to finish this outfit off.
Outfit #3: Lacy Luxe
This lace-trimmed dress resembles the white dress that the youngest sister Cecilia wears in the film. The dress looks as comfortable as a nightgown, but would be perfect for a party. Add a whimsical touch with the asymmetrical bracelet and keep up the neutral color palette with the nude peep-toe pumps and white clutch.
Outfit #4: 1970s Casual
If you want to add some 70s flare to your wardrobe, look no further than this outfit. The embroidered top is breezy and comfortable with the dark wash, wide-leg jeans. These tan wedges balance out the jeans by elongating the legs, while adding a boho touch to the look. Add some fun accessories like these multi-colored bangles and earrings to complete the ensemble.
