My Favourite Movies for Vacation Wardrobe Inspo

A large part of my wardrobe planning process involves collecting inspiration from a variety of sources. Most of it comes from Instagram and Pinterest, but there are also a handful of movies I watch nearly every spring to get me into the mood for making warmer weather clothes. Most of my favourites are classic films and take place in Europe, but that’s just my taste.

Movies I’ve seen approx. 1000 times:

  • Paris When It Sizzles (Audrey Hepburn in Paris in Givenchy. What’s not to love)
  • Funny Face (also Paris, also Hepburn, also Givenchy.)
  • To Catch a Thief (Grace Kelly in gorgeous gowns in Monaco. Edith Head was the costume designer)
  • Roman Holiday (Audrey Hepburn, but this time in Rome and dressed by Edith Head)
  • How to Marry a Millionaire (Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, and Betty Grable. A bunch of models living in New York. There’s both evening wear inspo and winter cabin inspo)
  • Chocolat (Made in 2000 but set in 1950s small-town France)
  • Crazy Rich Asians (I can’t even begin to sum up the fashion moments in this one)
  • Dirty Dancing (I like this one for the classic American summer camp vibes.)
  • The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Season 2 (okay not a movie, but If you need more of Kellerman’s from Dirty Dancing, here you go.)
  • Jaws (I don’t watch this one as much, but I do when I need a hit of mid-seventies beach fashion)

A few I haven’t seen, but I’ve added onto my summer watch list are:

  • Something Borrowed (This one came up on some list I found about movies set in New England)
  • Moonrise Kingdom (Everything Wes Anderson does is so aesthetic)
  • Summertime (the 1955 one with Katharine Hepburn)
  • High Society (I don’t know how I still haven’t seen this)
