Real talk: Watching Moonrise Kingdom always makes us lust over high socks. And no matter how many Margot Tenenbaum Halloween costumes we see, we still end up thrifting frantically for the perfect fur coat. While we're always intrigued by Wes Anderson's plots and characters, the outfits linger in our minds long after the closing credits have rolled.

Anderson's leading ladies always manage to look flawless. In honor of these well-dressed heroines, here is a guide to achieving their looks.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou's Eleanor Zissou

Periwinkle, teal, royal—this a movie all about blues. While most of the characters don head-to-toe blue ensembles, Anjelica Huston's Eleanor Zissou shows a way to make an aquatic look still be fashion forward.
