"...from the New Wave soundtrack (a real treat for nostalgic Generation Xers) to the appearance of hairdos like the one that Flock of Seagulls guy had, this is a little slice of the decade of skinny ties and, well, Madonna, that holds up extremely well." - Apollo GuideThe movie itself is okay. The style in it is fabulous - very 80s, very punk chic, very amazing! I love how every piece in this movie could look totally great and would be absolutely stylish even these days.
I actually think you can get stuff like the girls' in the movie at Hennes and Mauritz. If you go for designer, try Dolce and Gabbana and Marc Jacobs.
Things you'll need to copy the Desperately Seeking Susan style:
- oversized tops and blazers
- messy and wavy hairdo
- bold neon colors
- studded stuff
- mixed textures - laces and sequins
- strong shoulders
- layered necklaces
- colorful head ties
- Don't overdo it, too much mesh and lace can easily become slutty!
- Be aware of going too far, layering too many different patterns, textures, colors and styles. That ain't pretty.
