fashion inspiration: gangster squad

If it wasn’t for the risk to life, I’d sign up to be a 1940s gangster girl in a heartbeat – the clothes are fabulous! Here’s some tips for channeling your own underworld glam from the safety of your everyday life.

Elegant formalwear: Who doesn’t love that red dress Emma Stone is wearing in the Gangster Squad posters?

It’s not an exact match, but this Ann Taylor silk georgette dress ($365) is pretty close.

Belted day dresses: A 1940s classic, the belted day dress is sophisticated, stylish and – best of all – it works perfectly for today’s office.

Modcloth has some fantastic belted dresses in a range of prices. One of my favourites is the Networking for Me Dress ($129.99).

Furs: I know that can be controversial but they’re an essential part of a gangster girl’s look.

If you don’t like the idea of wearing fur, you can get a similar look with the Felicity Feather Bolero (£60) from Coast.

Sparkly accessories: Every gangster girl worth her salt needs some glamorous jewels and a great clutch. Grace Faraday certainly know how to work them.

Anthropologie’s Giltwork Pin-Fringe Clutch ($78) would add a touch of vintage glam to any outfit.
