for the MEN.
To channel your inner Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), you first need a button down dress shirt. In the film, DiMaso wore a lot of white button downs, but you can also incorporate autumn colors like cranberry, deep browns or navy. Cooper’s character wore a lot of suits, but you can pair some khakis with that button down and a tweed or leather blazer. Shape was a big factor for men’s fashion in the 1970s, so get creative with structure in the jacket and pants.
for the WOMEN.
In American Hustle, Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) truly lets it all hang out. In practically every scene, she’s wearing the lowest v-cut neckline without a bra, and she looks like she’ll pop out at any moment. If you aren’t as daring as Adams’ free-spirited character, try for a v-neck jumpsuit, a deep-v back dress or a slightly higher v-neck dress. You’ll look stunning without letting the girls run free.
