The “Twilight” movie franchise, from “Twilight” to “New Moon” to “Eclipse,” has inspired legions of fans to devour everything about the movie, especially the fashions. Each character has his or her individual style, and these tips from fashion school experts will help give you the look of your favorite. So whether you’re a Bella or a Rosalie or an Alice, here’s some fashion advice you can sink your teeth into.
Bella Swan. She’s loved by both a handsome vampire and hunky werewolf, so Kristen Stewart’s Bella must be doing something right in the fashion department. Her style is casual and effortless, as if she doesn’t care how she looks (even though she always looks impeccable). To get Bella’s look, stick to basics, like fitted v-neck sweaters, henleys and hoodies paired with jeans. She also has great taste in jackets with multiple zippers and pockets, often cropped short to show off her legs. While some might interpret her look as tomboy, she is actually more of cowgirl, with rugged looks that fit her living in Arizona and now Washington. So embrace those plaids, denims and boots, and you may have Edward or Jacob pining for you as well.
Alice Cullen. Ashley Greene’s character has lots of fans wanting to imitate her fresh, youthful style, and it’s no wonder. This girl looks like she’s on her way to fashion college. One of her most famous looks was in the first movie, when she wore a black, tailored vest that was shorter than the blouse underneath it. She also kills (so to speak) in lace sweaters over gunmetal grey empire waist dresses that are flirty and feminine. One might call her style girly goth, with a little Audrey Hepburn thrown in.
Rosalie Hale. Nikki Reed’s character is described as one of the most beautiful people in the world, and she has a glamorous, sophisticated wardrobe to match her looks. She often wears sharp blazers that are classic, but with a modern edge. She’s also partial to hats and scarves, no doubt because she has ice instead of blood running through her veins. But if you really want the Rosalie look, you’ve got to wear designer shoes with heels so high that they could drive a stake through a vampire’s heart.
Edward Cullen. Robert Pattinson has become a style icon thanks to his “Twilight” role, regularly gracing the pages of fashion design magazines in his signature sleek ensembles and tousled hair. If you want to dress like you’re on “Team Edward,” wear neutral colors like grey and blue, and think clean, classic pieces: straight leg dark denim jeans, crisp button-down shirts, v-neck sweaters, and oh, that gorgeous grey pea coat.
Jacob Black. In “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” Taylor Lautner’s character usually wears jeans and black tees that are a size too small, or no shirt at all. Jacob, then, isn’t much of a fashion plate. But Taylor Lautner is another matter. When he’s on the red carpet, he is always dressed to impress in fitted vests that show off his physique, leather jackets, or designer suits. To dress like you’re on “Team Jacob,” or actually “Team Taylor,” wear a vest, tie and long-sleeve shirt over a pair of jeans. Or for a dressier occasion, look for a suit that’s form-fitting, with just a little bit of shine to the fabric.
The characters in the “Twilight” saga show that fashion can follow trends, but true style is immortal.
