Fashion In Film: Enid Ghost World


Here we are again with another fashion in film post - this time I'm taking a look at Enid from Ghost World. I love her carefree style and how un-afraid of colour she is. Ghost World follows two best friends Enid and Rebecca as they graduate high school and try an find their way in a world that seems so alien to them. They play a prank on a middle aged record collector - who Enid actually goes on to find is her kindred spirit. I love this film, its so kooky but still has a heartfelt message.
Enid wears some pretty bold looks through out the course of the film, her most famous is probably the one from the movie poster - raptor t-shirt and checked skirt. It got me to thinking, what does one wear now if you edging on the side of geekdom. 

I thought a modern day Enid would still stick with the dinosaur theme but maybe something a little different like this vest from Topshop. Every geek worth their salt has a backpack - I liked this red and tan one from ASOS, it's a little different to all the black ones I've been seeing (I also have two black ones myself) on the high-street. As the mini skirt isn't having a moment I thought Enid might opt for this lovely checked number from Romwe. The boots are typical Enid - something chunky for stomping around in. These boots from Ebay are actually winging their way to me as I type, all the way from China.
