Ode to old Hollywood

As much as we love today's stylish celebs and their endless array of fabulous fashion statements, it’s the glitz and allure of Hollywood past that epitomize glamour. Look no further than Reese Witherspoon’s character in Water for Elephants (in theaters now) for the perfect example of sultry vintage glam. We’ve made it easy for you to get the look and try some old Hollywood glamour on for size. Robert Pattinson, eat your heart out!

Ode to old Hollywood

Ode to old HollywoodHomage to old Hollywood glamour

Want to evoke that effortless old Hollywood glamour? It's easier than you think with these sexy and stylish vintage-inspired pieces.

1In the navy

We love the tailored pencil skirt and sailor-inspired striped top Reese Witherspoon's character wears in one scene of the highly anticipated Water for Elephants. Get this polished look with a similar classic pencil skirt in black with white buttons and cute anchor embroidery from Unique Vintage ($50). Pair with a pretty short sleeve ruffle blouse from OTTO ($325) and white beret similar to Witherspoon's ($67 at Revolve Clothing) to complete the look.
