Why The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is Inspiring Our Fall Wardrobes


After watching the trailers for this weekend’s must-see film The Man from U.N.C.L.E., two things are clear to us: Firstly, we’d watch stars Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill clip their toenails for the rest of eternity—they are that sexy. Secondly, the glamorous Atomic Age wardrobes sported by co-stars Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki are making us rethink our entire fall fashion plans. All the stand-out pieces from the era feature prominently on these two actresses, one who plays an auto mechanic-turned-damsel in distress (Alicia Vikander), and the other who plays the ultimate femme fatale (Elizabeth Debicki). We’re talking chunky plastic earrings paired with mod minidresses and kitten-heel pumps, pumped-up bouffant hairdos and Liz Taylor-style kaftans. When not trying to either save the world or destroy it, Vikander and Debicki give a thorough education on how to look eternally chic. Below, a few of our favorite looks from the film and how to recreate them today.
