Get the Holiday Look: Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde
Look to Faye Dunaway's wardrobe in the film Bonnie and Clyde if you're in need of some holiday style inspiration
Although this violent film about the notorious criminal partnership between Bonnie and Clyde doesn’t exactly inspire a holiday mood, there’s something about Faye Dunaway’s refined attire that does. She sports a wardrobe of polished 1930s daywear in subtle shades - certainly not appropriate for camping. This is a holiday look best suited to those who prefer to visit (or fly to) a new city or take a leisurely daytrip.
Clean lines are key here, a soft blouse and fitted skirt is the silhouette of choice. Alternate your blouse with a short sleeve cotton sweater. Take it up a notch for a special occasion with a belted jacket and matching skirt combo.
Bring a bit of ease to this Depression-era look with lightweight fabrics, think cotton knitwear, silk chiffon blouses and linen skirts. Go for neutral shades like camel, dove grey and ivory – contrasted with a dash of black.
There’s no denying that Bonnie’s beret is an iconic accessory moment in film, her secret weapon for topping off every look. Don’t forget a printed square scarf tied Western-style.
Nobody gets in your way.
