Inspiration: Rosemary's Baby

It's Halloween so I thought it would be appropriate to briefly address a classic horror film: Rosemary's Baby (1968). In terms of style, I think the most famous aspect featured in the film was the short pixie cut that Mia Farrow sported when her character, Rosemary, was pregnant. A new haircut for a new stage in her life.

Besides the haircut, I thought there were quite a few pieces of clothing or aspects of outfits that I admired. As much as I would love to say that the 50s was my favourite silhouette, I adore 60s Mod more so.

Here are my favourite aspects of the outfits:

 Maternity dresses - empire waist and baby-doll
I have no need for maternity wear as I'm not an expectant mother and I don't expect to be one any time soon but I thought a lot of those dresses were adorable with the empire waist and baby-doll. 
Especially the baby-doll.

Shift dresses

What would the mid-to-late 60s be without a shift dress?

Patterns
Rosemary's wardrobe features florals and plaids. I believe the far left photo has a striped scarf. Something about plaids and florals whisper demure. 

Collar details

Lots of peter pan collars. I particularly liked the crocheted collar in the middle. Though the far right photo does not feature a peter pan collar, the collar is still an important detail of the dress.
