Inspired by... Bonnie and Clyde

Publish date:

Faye Dunaway as Bonnie in Bonnie and Clyde was one of the first fashion icons known for mixing fabulous style with a badass outlaw persona. Her unique style has inspired many a fashionista!

Bonnie's look in the film can be described as tailored and functional with touches of glamorous accessories. She is almost always sporting a scarf around her neck and some sort of hat on top her blonde bob.

The four outfits below are a modern take on Bonnie's style, so you can rock it yourself!

Outfits Inspired by Bonnie and Clyde:

Outfit 1: The Secret Meeting

In the photo to the left above, Bonnie is wearing a pretty beret, sweater, and scarf. To modernize her look while staying true to the character, I paired a cowl neck sweater with pretty black skinny jeans, studded flats, and finished the look off with a very Bonnie-esque blue beret.

Outfit 2: The Robbery

In the movie, Bonnie is wearing a skirt and top, but a long sweater and leggings are a more modern take on her girly style. I added a belt at the waist like the one Bonnie wore in the movie, and finished the outfit off with badass boots and a practical leather bag.

Outfit 3: The Getaway

This look draws influences from the 1920's and 1930's, while still keeping up with this decade. A basic tee works well with a knee-length khaki skirt. The 1920's vibe comes out with a pair of amazing vintage-inspired oxford heels. Finally, go incognito with big, identity-obscuring sunglasses.

Outfit 4: A Night out Celebrating

For the final look, Bonnie's signature black turtleneck becomes more "today", when paired with a high-waisted gray skirt and fierce, waist-cinching belt. Classic diamond studs are the perfect classic accessory, while gladiator-inspired heels are very on-trend. Finally, a pistol charm necklace is a more literal nod to the film without going overboard.
