He's Just Not That Into You Brings The 90s Back.... And We're Into It
February 10, 2009
We shuffled into the New York City theaters over the weekend to watch the highly-anticipated He’s Just Not That Into You, and as far as chick flicks go, this is a rather smart and funny romantic comedy. We think the movie’s worth some hard earned cash to watch it with your girlfriends and commiserate over your love lives (after which we think a martini might be in order) but the clothes are definitely cute and noteworthy. Here are some big trends you see featured in this movie:
The main heroine Gigi, played by Ginnifer Goodwin, has that very giggly homage to 50’s pin-up girl mixed with slightly updated touches of 90’s goth. Gigi is almost always in very girly dresses in bohemian little prints paired with tights and cute cardigans. This adorable Kimchi Blue Knit Print V Neck Dress ($58) can be worn with black tights and this adorable Forever 21 Ribbed Cropped Cardigan (now $11) to achieve a similar look.
Speaking of the 90’s, it appears plaid shirts are making a comeback. There was a lot of plaid in this movie, most notably worn my Jennifer Aniston’s character Beth. We recommend this Kettle Black Plaid Flannel Baby Doll Shirt ($110) with one of Aniston’s favorite denims (which we believe are the jeans also worn on camera), the Lofli Streamline Straight Leg Jean in Potassium Wash ($185.)
Last but not least, there were so many shawl cardigan sweaters in this movie it made us upset we hadn’t brought ours to the theater. Impossibly easy options for office, errands, or evening, these little items have won our hearts as well. Go with this Gap Shawl Cardigan ($69) or for the long, gorgeous style seen on Aniston, give this Delphine Skinny Ribbed Cardigan ($245) a whirl.
