How to do a modern take on the stylish '80s fashion from "200 Cigarettes" for New Year's Eve
2017 is just around the corner, but that is no reason not to party like it’s 1999. We aren’t talking Y2K bug — this is more along the lines of ’99 cult favorite movie, 200 Cigarettes. We remember seeing the bright yellow box at the video rental store (yes, those were a thing) and immediately being drawn to the super cool outfits everyone was wearing.
The ensemble cast of 200 Cigarettes featured the hottest stars of that era in stylish ’80s clothes, as the film takes place on New Year’s Eve 1981. The Affleck brothers are double trouble. Beauty and style is basically Kate Hudson’s royal birthright. Courtney Love lives and breathes her rocker’s edge. And Christina Ricci? Well, we are finally coming to terms with the fact that we might never atone to that level of cool…But we can try!
