No movie captured our hearts like To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Based on reports, the entire film has a specific palette for Lara Jean’s wardrobe, taking inspiration from ‘90s Vogue, the Clinton era, and K-Pop. These colors, ranging from magenta, cayenne, and yellow, define the character’s fashion mood. Rock Lara Jean’s Hollywood glam to school-girl chic ensembles on your family holiday party—keeping things simple but stylish.

There is something magical about Paris. A city of art and culture, it pulls you in with its beauty and charm. So when the holidays roll around, what better character to embody than one of your favorite ones from the city? Choose an oversized vintage polo or any long-sleeve top with an orange polka dot pattern, black trousers, and match the look with a pair of party-ready heels like Emily’s Christian Louboutin Mary Jane Platform Pumps in maroon. Finish the look with a stylish belt to accentuate your waist, and be that character that wears the fun, whimsical, and head-turning ensembles on a festive night.

Now is your chance to live out your Crazy Rich Asian fantasies! Like Astrid Leong’s outfits, dress in lavish and elegant clothing to welcome the new year. Opt for a midi dress in a light shade of pink, drop diamond earrings, and a pair of Valentino heels for a fancy holiday dinner with your loved ones. You can even up the ante with a studded Lady Dior bag just like Astrid’s.

Nancy Wheeler

Unsurprisingly, even Natalia Dyer was inspired by her Stranger Things character, Nancy Wheeler’s fashion expression. This shows that fashion identity is ever-changing and doesn’t have to be limited to trends. There are plenty of pop culture favorites that you could easily draw inspiration from for your next holiday fashion project. And when you enter the halls dressed as Nancy from the Netflix hit, your relatives might gasp at the idea that you are bringing to life the outfits from the Upside Down. To mimic her classy look on the show, opt for a pastel blue coordinated suit and skirt, and choose a white collared top as your inner shirt. There’s something about Nancy clad in a pastel visual in Stranger Things season 4 that exudes casual elegance, achieving a chic modest style perfect for a holiday reunion party.
