Lou and Will find their lives – and hearts – changing in ways neither could have imagined in Me Before You, based on the bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes.
Throughout the movie, Lou’s wardrobe; an eclectic mix of garish patterns, dazzling colours and standout pieces, plays a huge role in brightening up Will’s life. She has an outfit for every occasion and conquers countless beautiful styles. Lou’s clothes reflect her determination to show Will that life is worth living, and they both end up with more than they bargain for.
Here we take a look at four fashion favourites from the film and how Lou really makes them work.
Patterns are a timeless classic. Dress them up or down, they’re eternally versatile. Whether it’s just a hint of dots or head-to-toe, they add an element of fun to any outfit. There’s a world of dots to choose from too, whether they’re tightly packed and neat, or random and irregular, there’s never a boring option. Lou wears her whimsical polka dot skirt with a textured moss green jacket and, most importantly, a huge smile. It’s an irresistible combination.
Nothing says ‘hire me’ like a blazer, and black and white checkers are certainly bold… perfect for those occasions when you need to impress. The fitted cut and structural shoulder pads create and elegant silhouette. Paired with a silk shirt, sexy black pencil skirt and sharp, shiny heels, Lou’s confident outfit gives her the boost she needs for her interview with Will - while she does meet him, she really goes to meet his mother.
Daring and unexpected, the statement shoe is a thing of beauty. Requiring ample confidence, they can be intimidating to wear. But, believe it or not, they’re actually quite versatile. Pair them with a really simple outfit for an extra level of chicness, or with a cocktail dress for added va va voom. Lou ties her eccentric shoes into her outfit by blending them with other complementary shades of green. Still eye-catching enough to attract Will’s attention proves that their magnificence is not lost, whilst a cute knitted jumper and casual up-do keep her look low-key.
THE RED DRESS
There are times that call for that dress. The one that makes you look like a million dollars. The one that makes him say WOW. Lou looks jaw-droppingly beautiful in her stunning red number, showcasing classic glamour perfectly. Its elegant neckline and charming shoulder sections give it an air of grace suitable for the most sophisticated of occasions. With her matching scarlet lipstick, dark hair and pale complexion she is truly unforgettable.
