Need fashion inspiration? We’re back with our next instalment of style-stealing tips to help you create those festive looks perfected by some of the very best classic Christmas film characters. This time, it’s the beautiful Sandra Bullock in While You Were Sleeping.
If you’re looking for the perfect winter look with a grungy edge, Sandra’s style in this film has your name written all over it.
A simple, shoulder-length cut and springy fringe make Sandra’s character even more endearing. This look isn’t about hours of styling, so just make sure your hair’s in the best condition possible then let it do its thing. If you’re thinking of getting a fringe, you might find this guide to the best bangs for your face shape handy.
The nineties’ makeup mantra? Less is more. Sandra stuck to this in While You Were Sleeping, and now it’s your chance to brave the barefaced look. Create a flawless base with foundation suited to your skin type, add a touch of blush then let your natural beauty do the talking.
With its simple shapes, understated colours and often masculine look, Sandra’s style is the perfect one to emulate if you want to rock the on-trend nineties look this winter. Comfy knits, cute hats and flattering but modest cuts come together to keep you cosy while making sure everyday style means you’re stylish every day.
Get the look:
Oversized jumpers are pretty much another main character in this film: get the look from the scene where she’s setting up her Christmas tree with a loose-fitting grey jumper. Why not get your mitts on a man’s jumper to really rock that laid-back, oversized look?
This lambswool cable knit jumper, £25, is perfect and will feel amazing on cold days.
Top off your jumper Sandra-style by opting for a coat that looks slightly masculine. This cocoon coat, £40, has a tailored look and classic colour that’ll create the ideal effect now and stay timeless winter after winter.
The accessories make the outfits in this film: steal that winter-ready style with knitted scarves in dark, understated colours. We love the oxblood red of this cable knit scarf, £10.
Don’t forget your woolly hat. It doesn’t need to match – Sandra teams her dark green scarf with a light grey hat for a cute mismatched look. Try a cream knitted pom pom hat, £5, to top off your outfit in style.
