I have always been a fan of great cinematic movies that incorporate beautiful locations and fashion. It’s the perfect WhenWearGo combination. I just finished watching The Talented Mr. Ripley... again and I feel that this tragic, dark, romantic movie embodies all of these notes.
The setting of The Talented Mr. Ripley is largely 1950s Italy. If you haven’t seen this masterpiece please enjoy a Netflix and chill and watch it.
The Talented Ripley is a cinematic adaptation of a novel that has the same title. Tom Ripley (Matt Damon), is sent to Italy to retrieve Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law), a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy…and can I add smokin’ hot as well.
Tom attaches himself to Dickie and to Marge (Gwyneth Paltrow) and becomes obsessed with Dickie’s lifestyle that he takes extreme measures in order to make Greenleaf’s privileges his own. Creepy I know. But so good!
HOLIDAY STYLE SECRETS OF THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY
Dickie does live an opulent leisurely lifestyle. In everything, he wears he exudes self-confidence and luxury since he is part of the upper class. Dickie dons colorful printed shorts, high-quality button downs, tailor-made suits at the famous Sartoria in Rome and espadrilles, the perfect summer wardrobe.
Other notable wardrobes must haves were:
- Summer-weight jackets
- Cotton chinos
- Ties and hats
- Knitted polo shirts
- White linen trousers
- Linen Blazers
Now you can’t forget the role of Gwyneth Paltrow. If you want to dress like an all-American girl of the ’50s with a dash of elegance and sophistication this is the style for you.
What to Wear to get this look? Alice bands for your hair is a must. Then knotted shirts, linen skirts, and 1950s high waisted swimwear. Gwyneth Paltrow had so many standout fashion moments that it was hard to keep up with.
