Cheap yet Captivating Choices
You don’t have to spend heaps of money just to achieve a head turner fashion. The movie proved that you can still look good even with those inexpensive pieces. The film’s costume designer, Mary Zophres, revealed that most of Mia’s ensembles were shopped from her well-loved vintage shop. She made sure that the fashion choices would fit Emma’s character— a struggling actress, who works at coffee shop, and can’t afford designer collections.
Whilst Mia’s economic status and besieged career, these didn’t impede her in achieving some shining moments with the help of her cheap yet captivating choices. She’s always on top of her styles, and one of the most visible collections in her wardrobe is the A-line dress. This type of dress certainly creates a very flattering silhouette as it hugs the curves in the hips and beautifully flares outward for a sophisticated look. Resourcefulness goes a long way, as well as creativity.

Less is Actually More
There’s no need to reveal a lot of skin when you can actually turn heads with some fully-clothed ensembles. Sometimes, suits are not just for men; it definitely works well with women, and Emma Stone is a clear portrayal of ‘less is more’. At one instance in the movie, Emma ditches the super feminine look, and went for a tough getup. She donned a nice, tailored suit attire and completed her look with some bright red lips. The overall look was just simply striking.
Make the Most Out of your Wardrobe
Did you know that Seb (Ryan Gosling) only wore five shirts, three, coats, and two pairs of trousers for the entire film? Yes, and apparently, most of you are also guilty of wearing the same OOTD’s. We totally understand you, but still, you need to make the most of your wardrobe essentials. Try to have a wardrobe capsule or prepare your OOTD in advance. This will totally save time and money.
Be Ready, Always
As an actress looking for her big break, Mia always makes sure that she is on the go and ready for some serious misfortunes like spilled coffee or killer heels. Thus, it’s better to bring some spare shirts and flats to make your life more comfortable and convenient.
