I remember watching Mona Lisa Smile and loving two things: the strong group of females — a cast list that included Julia Roberts, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kirsten Dunst, and Julia Stiles — and the retro styling that captured the traditional '50s woman and the rebel. It's that dichotomy that made both the drama and the fashion of the film compelling. Now, it serves as our inspiration to channel both the decade's preppy school girl and the start of the '60s, and the more modern, bohemian woman, mixing full midi skirts with midriff-baring plaid, pedal pushers, and embroidered tunics. We've gathered all of the pieces you'll need to re-create the inspired looks — whether you decide to go prim or a little more laid-back.
