Retro Looks: The Titanic

The Titanic.  The movie based on the tragic ship with an epic love story at it’s centre.  Who’s heart didn’t break just a little when Jack died and sank to the bottom of the ocean?  But didn’t Kate Winslet look amazing even when the ship was going down?  My favourite out fit of Rose’s was the pin-stripe suit she was wearing as she boarded the Titanic near the start of the flashbacks.  It was well tailored and hugged her in all the right places making the most of her figure.  To recreate a look inspired by Rose, I would keep it simple and keep the lines clean by teaming white skinny jeans, a white t-shirt and a navy pin-striped blazer and of course some heels.

Retro Looks

I’ve always had a fascination with the by-gone eras.  Especially the fashion, hair and makeup.  Periods such as the 20s, 40s, and 50s just seemed so much more filled with glamour.  While fashion is like a rotating door in that it all comes back around, it’s never like it was the first time around.  So, in this series I will be taking a look from a period or a movie set in a particular period and interpreting how I would translate it for today.

The 1920s:

The 1920s are definitely back in style at the moment with the upcoming release of The Great Gatsby.  Even the Vampire Diaries have done a couple of episodes set in the 20s – Didn’t Rebekah look amazing as a flapper?  But all those sequins and the flapper dresses may be a bit much for now and you could run the risk of looking like you are going to a fancy dress party if you decked yourself out from head to toe.  But the Bob haircut and crimson lips look amazing at anytime – it all adds a bit of drama.
