3 iconic looks from Last Night in Soho we're dying to recreate

Take some fashion inspo from Last Night in Soho, a new horror flick set in 1960s London.

The film begins in modern times and follows Ellie Turner (Thomasin McKenzie) as she moves from Cornwall to London to pursue her dreams of being a fashion designer.

Ellie adores the fashion and culture of the 1960s. She attends the London College of Fashion but finds it difficult to relate to her peers and moves from her hall of residence to a bedsit owned by an elderly lady. 

When she moves she begins having vivid dreams set in the 60s about a blonde singer named Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy). Ellie becomes obsessed with Sandie following these recurring dreams and dyes her hair blonde to match her and bases her fashion designs off her. 

However, she soon finds out that Sandie's life is not as glamorous as she once believed and dreams quickly become real life nightmares.

Fashion is at the forefront of this film and a lot of this is down to the amazing work of costume designer Odile Mireaux-Dicks.

Many of the pieces used in the film are genuine vintage pieces that Mireaux-Dicks found in London's second-hand shops. To nail down the modern-day fashion student's style she photographed over 500 students at Central Saint Martins art college. 

So let's see how you can incorporate some of this high glamour 60s attire into your everyday wear.

1. Sandie's white vinyl coat

The trench coat is making a return this winter and you can add a groovy touch to it by opting for a vinyl version, as seen on Sandie here.

The white adds that vintage flare if you're looking for something a bit more eye-catching than the usual beige shade. It's also perfect for the colder climate as the majority of vinyl is also waterproof.

This ASOS design is €81.99 and also comes with a hood. It's an extremely versatile piece that can be dressed up with some thigh-high boots or dressed down, as seen on the model with a simple trackie underneath.

2. Ellie's sheer top 

Even before being transported into the 60s Ellie has some serious style, we see her sporting this patterned sheer top as she begins her move to London.

This film has not abandoned modern fashion and sheer tops are set to make a serious comeback this year. They look fab on their own but are also ideal for layering under dresses and tank tops on those colder nights out.

This one from New Look won't break the bank at just €10 - and those cute little flowers are sure to brighten anyone's day.

3. Sandie's swing dress

They don't call them the swinging 60s for nothing and this dress speaks straight to that.

The peach high neck swing dress Sandie sports is the height of mystique and romance. A piece like this is timeless and akin to Twiggy's high neck ensembles.

This royal blue number from JJ's house is just what you need to channel your own 60s glam at that next special occasion. It retails at just €49.

The dress speaks for itself and can be simply paired with statement earrings and simple shoes creating a timeless and glamorous look.

Last Night in Soho is in cinemas now.
