Stay in love with Summer's wardrobe.
500 Days Of Summer Stay in love with Summer's wardrobe.

What would the perfect girl look like through the eyes of a man in love? The answer lies in 500 Days of Summer, the hit new film that breaks the romantic comedy mold with an astonishing amount of cool. We don't want to give you any spoilers, but suffice it to say that when Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) falls in love with Summer (Zooey Deschanel), his lovestruck point of view paints her as a beautiful, enigmatic woman that anyone would adore.

And adore her we do, as Summer's sweet girl next door appeal combined with a heady dose of whimsy equals a charming wardrobe. With fifties-inspired dresses, soft camisoles and feminine silhouettes throughout the film, costume designer Hope Hanafin tried to evoke classic and romantic looks that echo Tom's heightened sense of Summer as his perfect woman.

Observant fashionistas will also note the use of the color blue in Summer's wardrobe. Hope shares, “We saved the color blue just for Zooey's character. Zooey has the most amazing blue eyes and there's something magical about putting blue on her, or even putting blue behind her. No one else wears it except for one special moment when the whole world turns blue.”

To get your own Summer look (who knows, you may even get to snag a Tom of your own), click on and steal her style!

500 Days of Summer opens on October 21 in theaters nationwide.
