Ingrid Bergman, style inspiration.

In Casablanca, Ingrid Bergman looks flawless in her classic skirt suits, luxurious hats and majestic gowns. Her look is simple, elegant and perfect for the Moroccan heat.
A white flowey dress, finished off with a brooch and a chifon scarf. The more creative amongst you could  put this together with some white chifon and a few stitches.
A classic skirt suit and hat. Check charity shops, your grannies wardrobe and for the hat Pennys and Dunnes, cheap and cheerful.
To recreate this look, wear a simple white dress with a nautical top underneath and top of with a sun hat. Anything white with a nautical scarf would look just as lovely.
For the full on 1940s look, search second hand and vintage shops for dresses with a full skirt that goes below the knee,with  a cinched waist, short sleeves and only a hint of cleevage.
One of the simplest outfits to re-create is also one of the most  elegant. Pair a white chiffon blouse with a pencil skirt. Add heels to go from secretary to chic.
