Nothing Scary About It

So, hopefully you had bigger plans than just staying in and watching movies on Halloween night, unlike this FF blogger. But, a night of being comfy and enjoying a bowl of popcorn on the couch did allow me to realize one thing, you really can find fashion inspiration anywhere. And, if the Grey Ant line of fashion forward high waist jeans was inspired by Jamie Lee Curtis's character in Halloween, then why not look for style inspiration in our favorite scary movies?

Movie 1: Nightmare on Elm Street. 1984
Not only does the first Nightmare on Elm street feature a young Johnny Depp, but it also features classic preppy looks. Think oxford shirts, sweater vests, chinos, and natural makeup palettes.

Movie 2: Rosemary's Baby 1968
A classic. Especially when talking about hair. Who can forget that great Vidal Sassoon cut?
The movie also features great mod styles. Think clunky shoes and babydoll dresses.
