I’m a lifelong fan of Wes Anderson and his colorful, quirky films. One of my favorites (it’s impossible to pick a favorite) is The Life Aquatic. For today’s Style Muse post I am channeling inspiration from the uniforms in the movie to create an outfit for everyday life.
I paired this blue dress with a red hat I already had in my closet. Red hats are a great way to spice up a boring outfit with a pop of color. Plus I don’t know about you, but if I see someone wearing a red hat, I ALWAYS think of The Life Aquatic. It’s just so iconic.
Here are some fun finds of the nautical variety (some are on super sale)—
This is probably the easiest style to mix and match. Nautical stuff is fun and catchy without being super kitschy, and you can mix it with simple pieces like denim, chambray or a white t-shirt. 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9
This look is so easy to create that you might already have all the ingredients hiding in your closet at home. It makes me smile to pay a little homage to one of my favorite directors with my outfit. So fun! But honestly, other than the color combination, it’s not even remotely costume-y. I’d wear this anywhere. What’s your favorite Wes Anderson film? xx. Elsie
