There are a lot of elements that make a film great. We usually say that every iconic movie features brilliant acting, writing, and directing, but one aspect that usually gets overlooked is the costume design. As trivial as it may seem, the cast’s wardrobe can set the tone of a plot and subtly communicate a character’s arc and emotions. It’s not enough for the clothes to look cute on-screen—they also need to make sense in the movie’s setting and help move the story forward. 

That said, a good number of your childhood faves actually happen to be the most stylish films of all time. If you’re in the mood for some nostalgia with a dash of glitz and glamor, here are ten classic chick flicks that will inspire you to step up your OOTD game:
