If you haven't seen JK Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, then here's your official reminder to do so—even just for the sake of fashion.
For starters, we have to commend costume designer Coleen Atwood, who also worked on movies like Alice in Wonderland and Memoirs of a Geisha, for the charismatic 1920s outfits of the witches Tina and Queenie Goldstein (played by Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol).

Both characters are strong, intelligent, and equally endearing, and they also come with polarizing personal styles that perfectly represent the quirky dapper and glamour of the '20s. Here are a few outfit ideas based on Tina and Queenie's stellar looks from the film:
1. Tina's Take on Menswear
The movie opens with this androgynous look from Tina who opts for wide-legged cropped (yes, CROPPED) trousers, an oversized coat over a velvet double-breasted jacket and a soft white top underneath, fishnet stockings, and a pair of brogues.

Tip: Update the look with a frilly and flowy button-down plus platform brogues for a kick of punk. P.S. Layering two coats over each other is obviously optional considering our weather!

2. Queenie and Loungewear
Queenie is introduced wearing a pink slip dress, but with her curls perfectly groomed and paired with blush-stained eyelids.

Tip: We are obsessed with her beauty look TBH, which you can recreate with cheek tint or any liquid type of blush. Then all you need to do is to put on a pair mules and statement earrings and you could party the night away.

3. The Goldsteins and How They Do Glam
Tina sheds her man-repelling style for a bit to enter a jazz club with Queenie. She then puts on a svelte deep V dress that (we're pretty sure) made Newt's head turn. Queenie, on the other hand, stayed true to her pink color palette wearing a beaded chiffon number with car wash pleats.
Tip: Take cues from these looks and go for a sparkly fringed slip or a floral art nouveau-inspired maxi.

4. Tina Wears Her Pajama Out
At some point in the film, Tina finds no more time to change and casts spells out in the streets in her pajama top and trousers.
Tip: Take inspiration from Tina's fondness for cropped pants and steal the look with lace-up mid heels, a mannish overcoat, and of course, a pajama top of your choice.

5. How Queenie Covers Up
If she's not in a slip, Queenie still maintains a body-hugging and sensual silhouette in a flute hem dress. She does, however, layer it up.

Tip: Opt for a jacket with an iridescent sheen and a thin scarf tied in a bow to accessorize.
