What to Wear: An Affair to Remember

What to Wear: An Affair to Remember

I was re-watching An Affair to Remember over the weekend – as one does – and feeling so inspired by all those rich 1950’s reds and oranges from Deborah Kerr’s wardrobe.  Perfect for fall, whether you’re a temporarily-crippled redhead or not. Is it possible to find a few modern pieces that hit the same style?

1. Chiffon Top – A pretty two-tone orange chiffon top is a modern interpretation of the beautiful cream and burnt orange dress that Deborah Kerr wears the first night she meets Cary Grant on the ship. It also looks a bit like candy corn…which I can’t stop seeing now.

2. Brown Dress – Nothing comes close to how pretty her brown wool wrap dress is in the movie – worn in the scene when she first gets home from the crossing. This brown DVF dress is a poor approximation. Also, this $1,200 tailored brown Talbot Runhof dress and this $1,400 Lucas Nascimento wool dress.

3. Coat – A dreamy burnt orange wool coat for only $90 from Asos. To stay warm on the deck of your steamer ship.

4. Blouse – An ivory chiffon blouse with metallic dots instead of orange details is a contemporary version of the gorgeous dress for visiting Villefranche-sur-Mer.

5. Robe – A light slate blue robe from Etsy is the right thing for scheming elaborate, complicated and overly-uncommunicative ways to leave your lovers.

6. Blazer – A classic red wool blazer from J. Crew will never go out of style.
