Jennifer Grey’s flirty summer looks in Dirty Dancing

From crisp cropped shirts to high-waisted denim, the 1987 classic Dirty Dancing is a showstopper when it comes to fashion. Although Baby was underestimated throughout the film, she was au courant with the style of its time, serving up tulle skirts, millennial pink, denim shorts and crop tops. Copy the look with this bodysuit, €15.99 from Pretty Little Thing, shorts currently on sale for €13 from Topshop and trainers, €75 from Schuh.

Margot Robbie’s ’60s styling in Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood

The rave reviews of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood are thanks in part to the film’s stylistic talents. The groovy, wacky outfits of the counterculture environment of the 1960s include double denim, brown leather, a multitude of floral shirts and of course, go-go boots.

Margot Robbie, playing Sharon Tate, caused a stir with this chic, classy outfit – a white A-line skirt shied away by a black polo neck, bouncy blonde hair and finally the clean mid-calf go-go boots. Boohoo has a similar skirt for €11, the dream boots are on sale for €28 from Nasty Gal, and the jumper is €19.99 from New Look.

Natalie Portman’s grungy vibes in Leon: The Professional

The 1994 film Leon: The Professional is driven by aestheticism and alternative style. If you like the edgy look worn by a young Natalie Portman then look no further! Get the look with this cardigan, €18 from Boohoo.com, mom shorts, €44 from Topshop, bomber jacket, €35 from Pretty Little Thing and finally, the all important combat boots, which are €39.99 from New Look (bonus – they’re vegan!).

Someone Great

Netflix’s 2019 addition Someone Great featured lots of cutting-edge trends – in particular, Gina Rodriguez’ satin dress and oversized distressed denim jacket. You can find a similar dress at Nasty Gal for €21, and a denim jacket at H&M for €39.99.

If you love a co-ord, then DeWanda Wise’s playful ensemble is the one for you! She wore this versatile outfit to the club, but we’re getting major summer vibes from this one. A similar skirt (€28) and jacket (€40) co-ord is available from Pretty Little Thing.


A ’90s adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, Clueless embodies the style of the decade through tartan co-ords, sheer shirts, and eccentric hats. Since blazers and berets are so in right now, you can embrace your inner Cher with this outfit! This Boohoo tartan pinafore is on sale for €20.25 – ad Pretty Little Thing’s tartan blazer priced, €50, a white shirt from Marks and Spencer, €54, and an ASOS beret, €13.83, for the perfect attire.

A Simple Favour

The 2018 film A Simple Favour, starring Blake Lively and Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick, is a glamorous mystery from the outset. Although some of the reviews weren’t great, the suits worn by Blake Lively are ten out of ten.

Whether it’s collecting her child from school or making a martini, Lively consistently dresses to impress. From fedora hats to almost nip-slips, Lively embodies a mysterious yet sensual businesswoman. Molly-Mae Hague’s Pretty Little Thing collection features a pinstripe suit which can help you in finding your inner Lively – the trousers are €35, the blazer is €42, and the detailed chain belt from Boohoo is on sale for €10.64.
