Fashion in Film

Let's face it fashion inspires the movies or is it the movies inspire fashion? I can't decide.
There are so many great movies that the clothes the characters wear are just as important as the actors in them. Think about it would Sex and the City been half as fun if our favorite foursome strutted the streets of Manhattan in flip flops and sweats? Would that aspiring writer really have forgotten about her cute boyfriend and that her goal was to be a hard hitting journalist if the Devil wore the Gap? I think not.
Movies are my favorite source of inspiration for clothing. I love how costume designers tell us who every character is by the color and the cut of every wardrobe change.

A few classics;
Ali McGraw's preppy peacoat in Love Story.

Meg Ryan's classic blazer in When Harry Met Sally.

Uma Thurman's crisp white shirt in Pulp Fiction.

Audrey Hepburn's little black dress from
Breakfast at Tiffany's!

We have a few takes on these great ideas in Chadwick's. Take a look at some great ideas to dress every part of your life!
My all time favorite fashion moments in film come from one movie Auntie Mame - The 1958 original with Rosalind Russell. Her clothes transform her throughout the movie and inspired this girl to pursue a career in fashion. To quote Mame "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"
Luckily for us Chadwicks offers a great selection of clothing that will keep our fashion cravings well fed every season!
