One of the most defining movies of the early 2000s would definitely be Legally Blonde and actress Reese Witherspoon is a treasure there. If you're feeling too old today, it might be because this iconic movie completed 20 years. Crediting its status to being a cult classic would be because of the unapologetic fashion figurehead, Elle Woods. Also, we get to witness her cute way of delivering burns. Basically, you can't talk about pink without talking about this movie. It single-handedly proved that pink was more than just an emblem of femininity. And not just women, anyone who loves all things pink should not be discounted at first glance, whatever be the reason. The opening montage of her perfect blow-dry, French-manicured nails, Tiffany necklace and jewelled wedges immediately characterises her as a stereotypical sorority princess. However, the empowering twist of the storyline with even higher aesthetics of style is worth remembering. A secret piece of advice would be to watch this movie especially on days when you just want to be yourself and conquer the world. However, don't forget to chant the dialogue "I'll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be!" (insert your name instead of Elle Woods, of course).
Today, we decide to take a trip down memory lane witnessing all of her iconic looks. The outfits Elle wears offer longevity especially to the colour pink which truly is having a moment now from runway to the streets. Here are all the style tips we picked up from Woods while you should also tune to the iconic soundtrack, "watch me shine". Use it to your advantage and carry it off with confidence like Elle Woods.
Let's start with the iconic tip that Elle Woods shared with us "Bend And Snap" and yes, it may probably be the best way to begin the day. Although front detail tie-up tops are having a moment right now, we have to credit Woods for this. Abstract printed baby top and denim with accents of pink is how you can truly steal the show even if you're just visiting a salon.
Legally Blonde proves to you that the ones who wear pink aren't just giggly-girly, they are also the ones who are strong-headed and knows how to make their way to the top. So, what would Elle wear when she first stepped to Harvard? Ofcourse, pink! A powerful look in hot-pink leather, she completes it with large, pink-tinted sunglasses.
We would like to stay low-key on our very first day of college or work. But Elle's idea of "being serious" in sartorial elegance is another lesson to learn. Remember, when she strutted the corridors of Harvard Law School in a light-pink collared shirt and purple plaid tie worn under a turquoise cardigan with a shimmery turquoise pencil skirt? Serious dressing with hints of glam is how you win the day. Also, not to forget that iconic dialogue that she delivered when Warner expressed his disbelief about Elle's admission to Harvard.
We know studying is a real serious business, but when Elle proves that a sparkly pink bikini top, pink fur jacket and rose-tinted sunglasses might help you read better, who are we to object? Oh yes, please don't forget your pink sipper for constant hydration.
Even if you're in a room full of people dressed in a more conservative and muted style, it's okay if you just want to be out there channelling your signature bright-casual style. Elle gets acquainted with Harvard while wearing a pink beret and matching pants with a chain belt, worn with a sparkly off-the-shoulder crop top. Moreover, we are sorry to all the orange lovers out there, but in the wise words of Elle Woods, "whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed."
Even in very serious situations, don't lose your signature style while trying to fit in. Elle wins a case while wearing an all-pink number with a sparkly belt. Also, girls, pay close attention to the rules of perm maintenance, you don't know how you can use this superior knowledge to outwit someone!
