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.
