Summer Cinema Style

Cult classics—and the style tips to match

DEBUG: core/paragraph

We're counting down our favorite summer films—and sharing what-to-wear inspo from our latest drop. Because—let's be honest—we still love to get dressed up and there's always room for more escapism right now…

Thelma & Louise

DEBUG: core/paragraph

If you, like us, have been melting in this summer heat, then take a page from Thelma & Louise, which follows the eponymous duo on a scorcher of a road trip westward. Think muscle tees, bandanas, breezy blouses and tons of denim (and denim-on-denim)—all rebellious and badass. Our switch? Swapping out booties for slip-on clogs that will easily transition from summer to fall.

Stealing Beauty

Picture it: the Tuscan countryside, a gorgeous villa and you in a summer romance, dressed in dreamy florals, airy ruffle dresses and white cotton shirts… Style your hair in loose braids for bonus points.

Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in Out of Africa, 1985

Out of Africa

DEBUG: core/paragraph

If a romance by way of Karen Blixen is more your speed, then let Meryl Streep in Out of Africa be your muse, kicked up a contemporary notch in silk safari shirts, wide fluid pants and sharp jackets with cargo side pockets, all in a palette of khakis and olives. Our playful punctuation? A pair of suede mules—in a bold leopard print.

Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr. Ripley, 1999

The Talented Mr. Ripley

DEBUG: core/paragraph

The Talented Mr. Ripley had us from scene one, with Matt Damon musing over a blazer, but it's Gwyneth Paltrow's fresh-faced and sun-kissed style in the first half of the film that we're enamored with now. She's a Mediterranean jet-set dream, circa 1950, all cotton dresses, puff sleeves and A-line skirts. (As the thriller takes a darker turn, Paltrow's wardrobe slides into Hitchcock mode—leopard coats; pillbox hats—but we'll leave that for the next round-up.)

Wendy Peffercorn as the lifeguard in the classic pool scene in The Sandlot, 1993

The Sandlot

DEBUG: core/paragraph

Because, one, we love this movie about a ragtag group of kids on a baseball team and their adventures one summer in 1962. And because, two, we're forever young at heart. And that pool scene—we still laugh thinking about it today.
