After recently seeing the fantastic new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel by one of my favourite directors Wes Anderson, I started thinking of some of his older films and of the best fashion moments that were featured in them. It got me thinking that there must be ways to be inspired by these characters when getting dressed without looking as though youâ€™re dressing as them for Halloween. Here are some of my favourite characters with a fresh take on each of their iconic looks.

This spring, evoke your inner Bohemian babe by rocking some fringe in your outfits.
Fringe has gone in and out of style over the decades, however, now it is back in a big way.

You can keep it simple by wearing it in a purse or other accessory, or, you can g Read More...

This shoe comes in many different colours, and with distinct details like twine, it will be like nothing else you have already Read More...

Flirty and fun, few things are as quintessentially feminine as polka dots. This spotted print may be retro, but itâ€™s long outgrown its Minnie Mouse ears, re-inventing itself season after season to keep it fresh. If youâ€™re just testing the polka dot waters, you can never go wrong with the classics, so a simple black and white colour palette or an easy accessory like a purse is a great start. If you want to be more adventurous, try the print in a modern trend like these silk pants or Read More...
