Don't know what to wear (again)? We realized that the best style pegs can be found on TV shows and movies. It’s not as complicated as you think; there are hundreds of Hollywood heroines to choose from! It’s all about finding a leading lady you can relate to and picking elements from her look that you can work with.
Here, 10 kickass heroines whose styles inspire us.
1. Bella Swan in Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part II
If you’re not a girly girl, wear tough-chick pieces like a leather skirt or statement shoes. A black-and-white combo exudes understated glamour: chic, mysterious, and classic. Plus, you’ll stand out in a room full of dates in frilly dresses. And who wouldn’t want that?

Long vest, P3,990, Zara

Suede booties, P2,195, The Ramp Crossings

2. Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries
The ‘80s were all about having fun with clothes. We love this bright, neon top (in lace, of course) paired with an equally striking bottom. Keep your look streamlined with neutral accessories.

Floral pants, P1175, Forever 21

3. Mary, Edith, and Sybil Crawley in Downton Abbey
A fringe dress is flirty and feminine—exactly how your beau wants you to be on V-Day. Trendy cap-toe heels keep your outfit from looking too lola.

Nude pumps, P1,399.95, Primadonna
Clutch, P2,450, Mango Touch
Pearl necklace, P450, Forever 21
4. Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones
Tall and athletic girls deserve a break from their oversized sweatshirts, too! Chanel your feminine side in a maxi dress that’s sure to flaunt your assets: arms, (sexy) back, and shoulders. Plus, it elongates your long legs.

6. Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games
Who says you need to show off a lot of skin to be sexy? Ditch the mini for a pair of skin-tight pants. Your legs will still look fantastic, and the odds (of getting laid) will still be in your favor.

Black heels, P2,199, Charles & Keith
