editor's pick: dazed and confused

why the '93 comedy is my summer style inspiration.

Even if the temperature in New York just swung back to a frigid 20 degrees, I'm still mentally preparing for summer. The closet swap that happens in April is where I pack up all my preppy, boyish separates and replace them with '70s-cum-'90s pieces. My constant inspiration is the seminal '93 flick, Dazed and Confused, because--hello!--every character has the absolute best sense of style. From Milla Jovovich's hippie duds to Ben Affleck's jock ensembles to Parker Posey's flawless senior queen looks, every costume is better than the next.
