500 Days Of Summer is a movie about how sometimes relationships don’t work, no matter how much you want them to. It demonstrates the reality of love, sadness, heartache and anger. It brings you along for an entertaining ride and leaves you with a sense of hope. Hope that no matter how sad you are at one pt, there is a rainbow behind that storm somewhere.
Along with all the entertaining aspects of this movie, the fashion is also something that caught my eye (of Summer‘s and Tom‘s) and I wanted to take a further look into Summer’s 60’s inspired wardrobe.
As I mentioned in my previous post, a common theme in this movie in Summer’s wardrobe is the color blue. Most of her outfits have this color in them and the different tones go perfectly on her skin tone.
This is another great example of how you can dress for work without looking very corporate. This sweet ruffled short sleeve top and denim skirt is perfect for around the office, or grabbing a coffee somewhere.
Who thought shopping in IKEA could be so fun? Tom and Summer took the IKEA experience to a whole other level when they made themselves at home in the store. I can understand why Tom would be so smitten over this girl when she’s got such a fun personality and cute dresses like this baby blue one! This type of collar is particularly very popular lately in short dresses.
She wears this white sleeveless top in more than one occasion in this movie. The first time it is with high waisted pants, and the second time is with this colorful flowy skirt. Tops like these can be very versatile and are useful to have in your wardrobe!
I am almost certain I have a picture of my mom from the 70s wearing this exact same outfit. T-shirt tucked into high waisted shorts and stockings was all the craze back then, and it still is now. It can be worn on many body types and is a nice alternative to just wearing plain jeans!
Summer is clearly a fan of the school girl look because this is her second outfit of the movie that portrays this style. What I love is the teal argyle sweater vest. It’s practical and kicks any boring cardigans butt!
Denim has many different variations and this cute short sleeve dress shows us why we should probably wear more of them! She decided to wear it with a pattern belt which I find very nice, but I also love denim with anything tan coloured. Therefore a thin tan belt along with matching tan flats would be a great ensemble and something I would definitely be seen wearing!
Tom may have thought he was over Summer but when he saw her in this beautiful grey-blue dress his heart couldn’t help but melt a little. The neckline is a beautiful criss-cross and the bow detailing at the waist is a sweet touch.
I love movies that portray real life, and 500 Days Of Summer is one of them. It’s subtle details and real-life emotions draw you in and the great fashion is a simple bonus.
