1920s: Greta Garbo in The Flesh and the Devil

This film may have been silent, but the leading lady’s style was loud and clear! To get this roaring ’20s look without overdoing it, combine bold red lips with a hair piece or pearls (but not both).

1930s: Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night

The most iconic scene in this movie involves a suggestive stocking, so try adding this piece under an everyday outfit for a touch of classic flirtatiousness!

1940s: Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca

Big hats like the ones Ilsa wore are perfect for summer! Not only do they block the sun but you’ll have all the men saying, “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid!”

1950s: Marilyn Monroe in How to Marry a Millionaire

Norma Jean’s classic pink dress may be a bit much for your everyday wardrobe, but adding a touch of her iconic glam — such as faux fur or a cocktail ring — can instantly jazz up any outfit and make you feel absolutely smashing!

1980s: Molly Ringwald in The Breakfast Club

Her character only wore one outfit the entire film, so of course it had to be fab! Her brown boots, long black skirt, and pink shirt may be a bit much to wear all at once, so incorporate pieces one at a time.

1990s: Alicia Silverstone in Clueless

You’ll look like a total Betty when you rock platforms or a miniskirt — but not all at once! (And no tall socks, please!)
