Over the holidays, I watched the movie, Stepmom, with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon. I have seen the movie many times, but this time, the clothing for Julia Robert’s character caught my attention.
She plays the role of a successful photographer and was portrayed in a very classic, minimal wardrobe.
There are several minimalist fashion bloggers online and Instagram who I have followed for awhile. Every now and then, I will mimic their style, but I always throw on a necklace or scarf before I leave the house. So, after watching the movie, I decided to copy one of Robert’s outfits exactly and I left the big accessories at home. In the scene, she was working on a shoot, and wore black tights, a gray pencil skirt, a black knit top, and a black trench coat. No embellishments.
I was minimal…right down to the lips…Infallible by Loreal. The color is number 318, Bare Attraction.
I liked wearing the complete look…especially for a work day IN office. But, it really isn’t me. I am an accessory kind-of girl. I believe accessories often communicate my creative side. But, I am glad I tried it for a day. I often wear a classic, quasi-minimal, style…but there is usually some type of pop.
Have you ever copied a style you saw on a movie or television? How did it work for you?
These are great pieces to have in your closet…I would perhaps add a necklace…or two!
