If you like Wes Anderson movies, the ’60s aesthetic, and/or coming of age movies, you’ve probably already seen Moonrise Kingdom. If you haven’t, please watch it because it is a straight up visual orgasm from start to finish.
Set in 1965, the style in this movie is a great blend of sophisticated and whimsical. Very structured a-line dresses have Peter Pan collars, army shirts are decked out in boy scout patches, etc. The clothes almost as fun as the plot itself, which includes lovely half naked pre-teen dancing:
This look is great for a casual day lounging around and reading or a fun night out. So if you want to look like a ’60s dream, check out these 10 clothes and accessories that’ll make it happen!
BeretFor some reason, it's pretty hard not to look kind of fly in a beret. Snag one in a berry red for the the ultimate Suzy Bishop look. Buy it at American Apparel for $24
Coonskin CapWhether you want to look like Davy Crockett or you want to copy scout Sam Shakusky, you'll need a coonskin cap. If you're not into real fur (which is totally understandable), there are some fun faux ones that you can get for next to nothing online! Buy it at Amazon.com for $5.39
Knee SocksEssential! Pair with some Mary-Janes or saddle shoes and you're good to go. Buy it at American Apparel for $13
A-Line DressThe Peter Pan collar and the cut gives this dress the ultimate '60s feel. This would look perfect with knee socks or brightly colored tights. Buy it at ModCloth for $44.99
T-Strap FlatsMary-Janes are a great alternative, but this t-strap flat is a more unique spin on a classic. Buy it at Urban Outfitters for $39
Utility JacketYou can find these jackets at your local army surplus store or thrift shop. And believe me, it won't be cropped! Deck it out with cool patches. Bonus points if they're from the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts! Buy it at ASOS for $24.60
Army Green ShortsObviously you've got to wear this with your jacket for the ultimate scout look. Buy it at Forever 21 for $17.80
maybelline-color-tattoo-blueSuzy rocks this in Moonrise and you'll look dope in it too...a little dramatic, but dope. Buy it at drugstores for $6.99
Contrast CollarAny interesting collar will do, but contrast collars really add a pop to an otherwise bland blouse. Buy it at ASOS for $29.85
Pan Am PurseI know, I know, this one is a splurge! But this bag is not only perfect for this look, it's also just one of the coolest bags on the planet. If you don't know, Pan-Am is an old airline company that has long since gone out of business, but it was the king of the skies in the '60s. A friend of mine can definitely vouch for this purse being UH-MA-ZING so if you ever want to save up for something really brilliant, this is the way to go. Buy it at ModCloth for $78.99
