After recently seeing the fantastic new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel by one of my favourite directors Wes Anderson, I started thinking of some of his older films and of the best fashion moments that were featured in them. It got me thinking that there must be ways to be inspired by these characters when getting dressed without looking as though you’re dressing as them for Halloween. Here are some of my favourite characters with a fresh take on each of their iconic looks.

This spring, evoke your inner Bohemian babe by rocking some fringe in your outfits.

Fringe has gone in and out of style over the decades, however, now it is back in a big way. The addition of fringe into your everyday wear is a great opportunity to add a bit of personality to your spring wardrobe. The best feature about this look is that you can add as much or as little fringe as you want to your outfit. You can keep it simple by wearing it in a purse or other accessory, or, you can go all out and wear it in a dress. If you choose to wear a lot of fringe, it may be best to keep the rest of your look neutral, just to ensure you are keeping fringe as the focus.

Fringe is a great way to add a pop of interest to your wardrobe, and since there are many different ways to wear it, everyone will be able to find a piece that suits their personal style.

button up blouses

Like a trench coat or a pencil skirt a button up blouse is an absolute must have for any wardrobe. It instantly polishes any look and is one of the most versatile pieces you can own; it transitions seamlessly from day to evening and weekday to weekend, and works equally with a skirt or pants. A classic, crisp, collared white shirt is definitely the one to own but there are so many options out there from printed to bright coloured, silky to utility, cropped or sleeveless and don’t forget, a little detail (like the bow tie or lace one below) always adds a bit of flair. Just be careful with the fit, button ups can be tricky and can pull across the chest, so make sure they comfortably do up and aren’t showing a little too much. I’ve picked a few that stick with the traditional shape but with a few modern twists, think Joan from Mad Men in the Mango pick, or a professional twist on the popular plaid with the Babaton.

Writing posts about how to wear colour is one of my favourite topics since it is a personal challenge of mine.
