I just finished Me Before You last night, and I was totally inspired by Louisa Clark’s (Emilia Clarke) style. Her signature looks feature lots of colorful layers and mixed prints paired with fun shoes and accessories.
I picked a few of my favorite outfits, although it was hard to pick just a few, and put together some wearable looks. I did keep it affordable, of course, with a few exceptions that I felt fit the look better. Of course, Louisa’s looks are a bit eccentric…but her clothes are a part of her personality and she has fun with her outfits. The costume department really nailed the mix-match piece look, the key is to create a foundation for the outfit in the accessories and tying the ensemble together through complementary colors. A little bit vintage and modern, you can find several of her pieces in stores like H&M, Free People, Anthropologie, and Poetic License (I also found out you can buy some of the outfits Emilia Clarke really wore on set through eBay, that is if you have a couple grand just laying around…)
Puffy Sweater and Skirt Outfit
An easy way to mix prints is to pick a striped piece and pair it with a pattern piece, like the sweater and skirt combo here. Keep it tied together by picking tights/socks and a scarf from colors in the patterned piece. Keep the shoes understated and pick a fun novelty bag (one of Louisa’s staples).
Red Slicker Outfit
Blue Overall Dress Outfit
Yellow Bicycle Outfit
I love the color play in this outfit, the yellow top with the yellow patterned skirt fools the eye into thinking its a dress. With toned down colors, you can really go wild with your matching. Accessories are key so the eye isn’t drawn to any single piece and keeps it looking put together.
If you go just a bit outside your comfort zone, you will find that is really easy to mix and match without looking like you got dressed in the dark. If you love the pieces you wear then it doesn’t matter what anyone says! I hope this inspired you to try some new funky pieces the next time you shop!
