Inspired by Factory Girl

The next film on the list of 10 More Movies for Fashion Inspiration is the 2006 movie Factory Girl. This film is based on the life of  Edie Sedgwick, a socialite and one of Andy Warhol's muses in the 1960s. In the film, Edie (played by Sienna Miller) enjoys her new lifestyle as a fixture at Warhol's factory, but soon finds that her life isn't as glamorous as she once thought.

Factory Girl Style

Edie Sedgwick was (and still is!) a style icon, and the fashion in Factory Girl represents her unique taste in clothing. A trailblazer in the 60s Mod scene, Edie was a fan of clean lines and geometric prints. In addition, she was almost always sporting black opaque tights. She was not afraid to be bold and make a statement with accessories. Her love of oversized earrings, big sunglasses and tall boots defined 1960s mod style.

If you want to add some mod to your wardrobe, check out these four outfits inspired by Factory Girl:

Outfit #1: Mod Squad

The Factory Girl wardrobe features lots of bold stripes and this bodysuit captures the film's look perfectly. Black pants streamline the legs and make them look super long, while these caged wedges add a modern touch. This fringe necklace and matching shoulder-dusting earrings make a statement, while the sunglasses are both demure and timeless.

Outfit #2: Fancy Frills

This is a mod-inspired outfit for a more formal event. The tiered dress is a pretty blush color, which makes it stand out against the black opaque tights and classic black pumps. Accessorize with a bold ring, delicate chandelier earrings and a gold clutch to be ready for wherever your night may take you.

Outfit #3: Casual Chic

This tunic again picks up on Edie's love of stripes, but this time in a more subtle way. Sheer tights and tall boots make this outfit casual, cool and totally mod. The elegant earrings contrast well with the asymmetrical necklace, and the oversized sunglasses are definitely 60s chic.

Outfit #4: It Girl

There's no better way to stand out from the crowd than with some sparkle, and this sequined top is no exception.
