Cinema can be a great source of fashion inspiration. For me, spring brings to mind florals, brights and pastels, and plenty of vintage - from 1920s flapper silhouettes to full skirted 1950s looks and 1960s minidresses. Here are a few film-inspired looks for the season, matched with old cult favorites: The Boy Friend, Midnight in Paris, Edward Scissorhands, The Help and The Virgin Suicides!

Twiggy’s dreamy white 1920s frock is the very definition of easy breezy spring style.

Another neutral 1920s look, though sportier and less whimsical than the Twiggy version. 1920s fashion can be very versatile, and this dress would look just as chic today as it would have back then.

We could all use a healthy dose of kitsch in our looks every so often. This uber-mod aqua outfit is a lot of fun and perfect for springtime!

The vivid florals and patterns, combined with a 50s - 60s hourglass silhouette, is something I always gravitate towards this time of year.

Her delicate floral dresses and straight blonde hair makes her and all her sisters look ethereal and lovely. Who wouldn’t want to look this angelic for spring?
