Retro Your Look with, “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood” Wardrobe

Maybe you have noticed, but back are the bell bottoms, tie dye and boho chic.  Rather, the middle of 2019 is shaping out to be a collection of other decades, reinventing vintage looks. One movie in particular embodies the latest fashion trends by taking us back to 1969.

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is Quentin Tarantino’s latest instalment in the director/writer’s well-known body of work.  While Tarantino has had other notable fashion moments in his films, non like this fashionable decade in this new told story.  We can all take a cue from Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and incorporate some classic and timeless pieces.

Do you have a leather coat.  We would argue any day of the week that the leather coat is perhaps the most essential wardrobe piece.  Versatile going with so many different looks throughout the different seasons, a leather coat will age with you, never cheapening if you get the right one. Go fitted or more relaxed. Go black, brown, gray.  Go from a destressed and warn look to a clean and precise.  If you take away anything from the film besides the writing, the cinematography or the acting, please pay attention to the  real star, the leather coat.

Now, if you are looking for the perfect balance between cute and sexy, body flattering but not body hugging, then try a 1960s shift dress, both short and flowy.  The dress is woman chic while also being girl cute.  The dress can be mixed with lace and bold colors or play with the texture. In all, it is a great dress for all shapes and sizes.Screen Shot 2019-07-19 at 1.58.14 PM







Turtlenecks used to give me anxiety.  Who actually can stand something so restricting?  But once you accept the turtleneck, it will provide a consistent, mature and desirable look.   In a society that is numb to a more exposed style, stand out with a sophisticated turtleneck. They hug your curves naturally like a lover easily lingers a second longer when you touch.  Do yourself a favor, and make sure you add a couple of these into your everyday wardrobe.

While Once Upon a Time In Hollywood has garnered rave reviews, if you don’t see the movie, you can still incorporate the 60s sizzle into your closet. Whatever you don’t have, the good news that it is easy to get because it’s vintage; you can go to a thrift shop, Good Will, grandma’s closet.
