“Meet me in St. Louis, St. Louis!” Judy Garland plays Esther in this 1944 musical about a family from – where else? – St. Louis, whose father plans to relocate his children to New York. But before Esther and her sisters begin to wait on tenterhooks about being uprooted, she’s dreaming about the boy-next-door in this dreamy blue and white striped dress. Yes, the movie is nearly 70-years-old, but this pattern and belted waist are still very popular today. In fashion, it’s important to be influenced from many different areas of life – film, history, art, the streets – and watching old movies is a particular favorite of our editors, because what goes out, usually comes back in. The stripe is reminiscent of a classic beach umbrella or awning – the perfect style for summer!
