Petite Chicks in Summery Flicks

Petite Chicks in Summery Flicks
February 17, 2014 Bomb Petite

Just like the smell of freshly mown grass, a BBQ or a trip to the seaside, the summer film is firmly entrenched in our vision of the season. Tales of summer love played out against sun soaked backdrops fill us with nostalgia and an eager anticipation for ice cream weather. To rev up our spring/summer style inspiration, we’ve chosen 4 petite leading ladies from 4 very different summery films.

 1. Mila Kunis in ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’

Mila Kunis in Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Nothing says holiday vibes quite like Hawaii. Mila’s character works the beach look with taupe and khaki shades, floral accents and cute bikinis. Easy, effortless and pretty. All you need now is the tan!

3. Reese Witherspoon in ‘Water for Elephants’

Water for Elephants

Caring for a 10 tonne animal and finding yourself embroiled in an intense love triangle would wreak havoc on most people’s wardrobes. Reese’s character Marlena, keeps it together in sleek separates, sophisticated headscarfs and low key accessories. This look is perfect for summer in the city.

Spring Break! Spring Break! Spring Break! Whether you’re a collegiate raver or reliving your wayward youth, elements of Candy’s style can be adopted to inject some fun into your outfits.
