It’s almost Golden Globes time, people. Are you ready? Of course you are. Because, if you’re anything like us, you have your awards-show viewing routine down to a science. You head to your BFF’s apartment with two bottles of wine in tow, microwave those so-not-healthy apps, and then plop on the couch. And, there you’ll sit for the next four hours watching Tina Fey and Amy Poehler do what they do best, hoping the few movies you managed to see in theaters take home those coveted golden statues. Okay, sounds fun — until you take a look at your go-to viewing-party outfit. Let us guess: baggy sweatshirt and boyfriend jeans?
But, think about it. You watch in envy as the slew of celebs walk the red carpet in gowns from your favorite designers, dreaming you could wear them, too. So, instead of slumming it this Globes season, why not step it up a notch by ditching that loungewear and taking a sartorial cue from the Hollywood elite? Maybe a ball gown isn't in the cards (because that would be uncomfortable), but how's about trying something more creative like gaining inspiration from your favorite Best Picture nominees? It's festive and unique. Plus, if you get your entire crew in on the idea, you have yourself a good ol’ costume soiree.
So, to get you in the gussied-up party spirit, we gathered eight outfit ideas inspired by American Hustle, Gravity, Her, and The Wolf of Wall Street. The best part? Each look could totally work after awards season. Now, that’s what we call a win — acceptance speech optional.
