Shop The Film: Big Fish
Tim Burton's 2003 fantasy drama was a constant push pull between reality and fantasy but it's the delicate, feminine costumes that have us inspired to curate a list of summer time dresses that will make you feel like you're in a dream.
Big Fish takes place in Alabama and tells the story of a frustrated son who tries to understand his dying father's life. His father mixes what seems to be real and made up stories of his past. The costumes live in an authentic space but have moments of fantasy that play into the stories themes. The dresses are whimsical, dainty and ladylike but are styled in a way that makes them completely fresh. This month we're inspired by the Big Fish feminine silhouettes, springtime fabrics and use of of bold color.
Check out our curated picks inspired by Big Fish, below and check out the film, now streaming on HBOMax.
This a-line dress is very of the era. With its fitted waist, embroidered flowers and flutter sleeves. How sweet will this look in the sunlight with a little breeze blowing the tiered ruffles? Perfect for a summer wedding or tea party.
With a silhouette that could be frumpy if it came from anyone else, its truly the magic of reformation tailoring that makes this dress so lovely and the sleeves on are just perfect.
It wouldn't be a Tim Burton movie unless there was some stark black and white in there! With a back tie, flutter sleeves and maxi silhouette this really is a fun dress that will grab some attention without being obnoxious.
