The Styling of The Virgin Suicides Lives On


The Virgin Suicides, set in the 1970s, looks as if it takes place inside of a flashback. Its world is hazy and dreamlike—even when the plot becomes dark.

When Cecilia, Lux, Bonnie, Mary and Therese (the sisters at the center of the story) aren’t in their school uniforms, they wear delicate, feminine, modest clothes. The ’70s influence is apparent but subtle—we see bell-bottom jeans, bell sleeves, dusty florals, lace, and ribbed dresses.

Dressed in these dreamy modern picks, you can take a closer look when The Virgin Suicides screens on Saturday at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
