Netflix romantic comedies have become our sole PMS mood-swing saviours for a while now. With a target audience of young go-getters who are smart and in tune with their feelings, these original productions surely seem like the future of the genre. And for their recent fall release, they have a movie out worthy to stand next to 80s greats like Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club!
Based on the book of the same name, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before tells the story of a teen in high school stuck in some pesky boy(s) trouble. While the story stands apart from other teen rom coms in its modernity and minority representation, it’s the fashion that has got us hooked to this film.

The main protagonist of the film is a shy, ‘keeps to herself’ girl (who doesn’t need a makeover, btw!). But, Lara Jean is a fashion icon in her own sense. From standing up for combat boots to pairing vintage bombers with floral Forever 21 dresses, she is a savvy dresser to the T!
Plaid shirts paired with shorts will become your mood for the fall! Grab one for yourself right here.
Her wardrobe is a mix of youthful colours complemented by classy accessories. Taking a page out of 90s fashion, she is adorned with stacked jewellery, school-girl-meets-goth dresses, and platform sneakers that first sparked our fancy in fashion.
Need retro glares to go with your everyday casuals? These will look damn good!
Chokers, cropped dungarees, striped sweaters, and bomber jackets… this girl is all about pulling out classic references in her wardrobe. The film is definitely a testimony to how, even if you are shy, fashion is a way of expressing yourself like nothing else.
Chokers might just become THE Instagram trend this season! We found a set of new ones that you can stock up on!
The film is also different in the sense that the costumes are so thoughtfully put together. They are colour coordinated, unique to each character’s personality, and stand out from one ensemble to another. One of our top favourites has to be awarded to this red coat that LJ chooses to put on during the climactic confrontation of the film (watch out for that plaid skirt, girls!):
So grab some cheese popcorn and your fashionable BFFs for a girls’ night this weekend. You are welcome!
