Iconic Holiday Movie Fashion Moments

The holidays are upon us! It’s time to sit back and relax with a heart-warming holiday movie.

Not only are these movies enjoyable and get you in the festive mood, we couldn’t help but notice some of the iconic styles worn by leading ladies in these movies throughout the decades.

Donna Reed in It’s a Wonderful Life

It’s a wonderful life is a story that resonates throughout the decades, showing the importance of family and friends.

Mary Hatch is the epitome of style in this movie, wearing some incredible dresses.

Firstly, there is the iconic duck-egg blue evening dress she wears for the Charleston and the dusky pink, full skirted silk dress with small and intricate detailing.

A theme that Reed carries throughout the movie in her role as Mary is the beautiful and unique detailing around her neckline. From Broderie Anglaise, to lace and even a simple scarf; she makes the most of the small details.


Zooey Deschanel in Elf

Santa’s coming! Zooey and Will In Elf really play their parts well of innocent, happy and fun characters whose fashion choices are both playful and full of color.

Nothing too serious is allowed, with lots of Christmas-y jumpers, glitter and patterns throughout!
