Sofia Coppola’s 2006 Marie Antoinette starring Kirsten Dunst perfectly captured the opulent, youthful setting of Versailles during Marie Antoinette’s first few years as the Dauphine. When you travel back in time to enjoy to with her Highness, ditch the corset so you can breathe, but be sure to wear your most lady-like, colourful, and well, regal, garments.
We love Harry Potter–books, movies, and are saving up for a trip to the Orlando amusement park. However, we can’t help but notice the fashion in the wizarding world is really rather dull. Just because you get to cover everything up with a cloak/cape doesn’t mean you get to dress in a boring way.
Then again, maybe we’re being too harsh…when you’re dodging Dementors, Death Eaters, and possessed professors, something you can run and duel in is preferred. So here’s a cozy outfit that will keep you warm in Charms class (come on, even without spells the castle is no doubt quite draughty), yet is fashionable enough to go get a butterbeer at The Three Broomsticks on the weekend.
BONUS: If you want to stick to classic tweeds and muted colours for adventuring around the fantastical world Rowling created, get inspired by the Mulberry Fall 2013 collection.
