Based on the novel by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides is the sleepy portrayal of the five Lisbon sisters and their mysterious suicides, set in a 1970s Detroit suburb. While the subject matter is melancholic, it's hard to ignore the soft, feminine fashion. The film's dreamlike aesthetic and moody tone showcased lots of gauzy, retro-romantic babydoll dresses and ruffled tops, flat leather wedges, and girly, '70s-style eyelet and lace. Shop our picks below to crib the Lisbon sisters' easy, innocent style for Spring.
>>Pumps might not be the most Winter-friendly choice, but who can resist a pair of vixen red heels? We love how this street-snapped Parisian donned hers with ivory socks — for a little added warmth — denim skinnies, a cozy print sweater, and a wooly coat. Emulate her très chic outfit with our picks from Twenty8Twelve, Fallon, Sunner, and Calvin Klein.

missfox is dressed to impress. Her striking blue shirt dress is stunning and sophisticated. I like how she cinched in the baggy shape with an edgy belt. Pairing it with black accessories makes for dramatic contrast.
Here's what she has on:
- Dress: Sunner
- Belt: Topshop
- Tights: Spanx
- Booties: Zara
- Chanel: Gifted
Congrats to missfox!
Everyone else, submit your looks and I might feature you on FabSugar!
Among the things I love about Fall is that you can dress comfortably without being slobby. Roomy sweaters are the way to go — they provide warmth, hide the effects of comfort food, and make you a feel like a bundle of cool.
Shopbop has a collection of sweaters that fit the bill. This b.chyll Sable Cashmere Sweater ($418) is extra spacious and comes with handy oversize pockets. Sweet. Just be sure to keep the bottom portion of your outfit slim to balance out the look.
There's nothing better to shake your groove thing in than a disco-inspired jumpsuit. It's slightly different than a romper with shorts in that it's less resort-like and more dressy. We touched on the subject earlier this year because we had a hunch it would become a major Spring craze. And we were right. Emmanuelle Chriqui (in Stella McCartney), Rihanna (in Sonia Rykiel), Gwyneth Paltrow (in Stella McCartney), Diane Kruger, Helena Christensen . . . all these ladies have already shaken their groove thang, and you should, too.
You knew this was coming: Warmer weather calls for white! Also, a crisp white item of clothing works wonders for a hangover — oops, did I just say that? But seriously, whether it's to refresh your day, show off your tan or for the hell of it, white definitely has its place in fashion. Upon revitalizing my closet, I realized I have tons of white blouses — and I wear them all. White dresses, on the other hand, not so many. Penelope is leading the white out in her MNG Mango dress, will you follow?
These aren't self-help dresses, sillies, these are self-belt dresses. For some self-help visit Dear but for some fabulous dresses stay here. Fashion is all about the waist right now - with the return to the strong female form - and these dresses make dressing a cinch, as they've already paired a belt with. Some of the belts tuck neatly into the back, some make an appearance in the front, all play up your curves.
