5 Stylish Films to Watch Right Now
Let us guide you to some stylish films instead. Because if you’re anything like us, you’re already a little tired of binge-watching shows. And in a time when getting dressed is largely optional, stylish films are the perfect antidote to the lack of fabulousness. We all have a bit of extra time on our hands and actually sitting and watching a proper film will always lift your mood. We trolled through some of our most beloved films with a fashion focus and narrowed down our favourites. Keep scrolling for the five stylish films we recommend watching right now.
A BIGGER SPLASH (2015)
From the same director as Call Me By Your Name, Luca Guadagnino, this film is a psychological thriller starring Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes (with an iconic dance scene). With custom costumes by Raf Simons while he was still at Dior, it’s a sun-soaked dream to look at.
Having been somewhat ignored by history, Mahogany is a fashion film secret. Starring Diana Ross, the story is a classic rags to riches tale. Ross stars as a fashion design student who is spotted by an Avedon-inspired character and becomes a fashion model. The plot and dialogue aren’t totally perfect, but the outfits absolutely are worth the watch.
MARIE ANTOINETTE (2006)
The pastel-filled world of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette is always worth re-watching. From the I Want Candy montage and the endless stream of custom-designed Manolo Blahnik shoes, it’s a firm favourite.
IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (2000)
The 2000 Hong Kong romantic drama film written, produced, and directed by Wong Kar-wai. It tells the story of a man and a woman whose spouses have an affair together and who slowly develop feelings for each other. Maggie Cheung’s dresses are so incredibly chic, this film is often referenced for its style.
SENSE AND SENSIBILITY (1995)
Another period-drama favourite (and it’s available on Netflix) is Ang Lee’s Sense and Sensibility. If a young Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman isn’t enough, the muslin dresses and straw hats are very much a sunny weather vibe.
TO CATCH A THIEF (1955)
Alfred Hitchcock’s steamy summer classic is an absolute must. With costumes by legendary designer, Edith Head, every scene with Grace Kelly is a complete style inspiration in itself. From her black-and-white beach ensemble, to her silk pale blue gown, hers is the ultimate timeless summer wardrobe. The views of 1950’s Cannes aren’t bad on the eyes either.
