Fashion & Film #7 ~ Girl Interrupted...

By Lucy Harbron - 17:24

Girl Interrupted is a cult classic film, and with both Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie starring in lead roles, you know it's going to be amazing. It manages to be both gritty and dark, and comedic. I looove this films so I was super happy when someone requested I focus on it in a fashion & film post.

Obviously Ryder and Jolie are fashion queens in their own right, but in Girl Interrupted they are the epitome of laid-back, casual fashion. It's all about basic pieces- white button-up shirts, Breton t-shirts, classic blue jeans, and jumpers. I really love, Jolie's character, Lisa's look that's totally based around simple t-shirts and trousers. It's so basic but works with her character so well, and a beat-up vintage t-shirt with jeans is always a good outfit. Also her long fur-trimmed coat is so on trend right now as it has a total 70s vibe, very Janis Joplin.

But it's, Winona's character, Susanna's look that always catch my eye when I was this film. In spite of the film being set in the late 60s, she seems to capture that 90s laid-back, grungey look with slouchy shirts and rough pixie cut. I love her look with the striped tee and black trousers, it's a classic.

With the Girl Interrupted look comfort is key and less is certainly more. Their looks are never too extravagant or too put together and I think that's what I love about it. The styling matches the film perfectly, it's raw and doesn't take itself too seriously. I honestly feel like the best shops for this look are charity or vintage shops, old pieces will match the vibe waaaay better as you don't want anything too crisp or clean cut.

Ahhh I just love this film, and honestly when I really can't be bothered with my outfit I channel Susanna and immediately feel slightly better about my laziness. It's so perfectly casual!
