I finally watched Bonnie and Clyde this weekend, after years of reading about designers who are inspired by the clothes and colors of the iconic film.

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are gorgeous -- why don't people look like that anymore? -- but their wardrobe's more attainable than their looks, which means it's more inspiring. Aside from the obvious, like that I want to chop my hair into a blunt shoulder length bob for spring, I've found myself wanting to wear slips and button up tea dresses. Not even Bonnie Parker will make me want to wear a beret, but deep-v boyfriend sweaters with nothing underneath over long skirts look perfect. The muted colors and loose, sexy dresses embody the laid back luxury everyone seems to be aiming for right now, like Hannah MacGibbon's camel explosion at Chloé and Phoebe Philo's subdued Céline woman.

So of course, when I walked into the office raving about how amazing the 1967 film was, we started talking about our favorite movies, style wise. Not necessarily the prettiest to look at -- Elizabeth, Sweeney Todd, The Young Victoria , The Aviator -- but the ones that actually inspire our real life wardrobes. Click through for the whole list!
