Last weekend, I finally got a chance to see the film (500) Days of Summer! I’d been anticipating it ever since I’d found the trailer on IMDB some time ago while scouting for upcoming films featuring fashion-icon Zooey Deschanel . As I headed to the theater, I was anticipating loads of inspiring outfits, mushy love scenes, and pretty cinematography. I was not disappointed! This film had all the gushy romance and eye candy I was looking for. Yay!
Continue reading to get the scoop on this latest Zooey movie.
The film is told in non-chronological scenes of Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel) and Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as their romance unfolds. Although the story jumps from scene to scene, moving back and forth between the 500 days of their relationship, it’s surprisingly easy to follow! The whole time you’re (of course) wondering whether the boy gets the girl. Well, you’ll have to watch it to find out!
My main interest, however, was in what Zooey Deschanel was wearing. I was immediately struck by the neutral color palette of all her ensembles – lots of blues ranging from navy to aqua, baby blue to royal blue, paired with tan, grey, black, ivory, and white. After watching this movie, you’ll want to amp up your wardrobe with lots of Annie Hall inspired menswear pieces. This fall, get a staple vest, and wear it with a girly blouse and high-waisted trousers. Try wearing tights under shorts with a tucked in top and cute oxfords. Keep cozy in cardigans, wear classic school-girl style skirts and dress up your outfit with whimsical prints.
I have to say, this is the perfect date movie. I’d even go as far as to say it’s a chick flick for guys (and girls). In fact, I went to see the movie with three boys, and one of my boy-friends (not to be confused with my boyfriend) seemed a little teary-eyed as we left the theater. He remarked that, “We’ve all gone through relationships like that before.” Ah, too cute!
What did you think of the movie?! Would you recommend it? What ModCloth items do you think Summer would wear?
