Halloween Inspiration: Nancy Drew
Posted on October 21 2014
While I'm sure there will be a lot of 'sexy spies' out there this Halloween, here at Lille our speed is more the vintage style of the classic detective. Enter everyone's favorite amateur sleuth: Nancy Drew. Smart and independent, this teenager's escapades have inspired generations of girls to become strong, self-reliant women. To channel her look, search for classic pieces with a feminine (but not too girlie) vibe. We love the idea of a vintage skirt and blouse combination: the Alexandra Ruffle Top would be great layered with a camisole and a button-up cardigan over the top. Pair with a '30s-inspired hat, some textured tights or socks like the Crochet Over-Knees, and a cute pair of flats—the saddle-shoe look of the Brick Oxfords would be perfect. As far as accessories go, you'll want to make sure you have your investigating bases covered: a flashlight, binoculars, magnifying glass, notepad, and vintage camera are essential. Stay focused and you're bound to uncover many spooky mysteries!
