A Guide to Vintage Christmas Films

08 December 2017

Christmas is coming and there is nothing quite like snuggling down with a warm mug of cocoa and enjoying a festive film or two. To stay in keeping with our love for vintage vibes, we thought we’d share with you a few of our favourites alongside a little style inspiration whilst we’re at it.


Holiday Inn (1942)

With Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire at the helm belting out Christmas classics such as White Christmas and Happy Holiday, we can’t miss this from our list. To channel the 40s style of the films starlets, Marjorie Reynolds and Virginia Dale, check out our range of 40s dresses in satins, silks and tulles.

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

James Stewart and Donna Reed star in this iconic Christmas film, a tearjerker with timeless appeals, this fantasy drama from Director, Frank Capra. Channel Donna Reed’s late 40s homely style with tea dresses with lace and velvet details, perfect for Christmas Day comfort and style.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

You may already be familiar with 1994 Christmas blockbuster of the same name, the original landed towards the ends of 40s and we can’t get enough of it because of Maureen O’Hara’s 40’s power dressing. Steal the style from Miracle on 24th Street with a sleeved wiggle dress and a vintage style coat.

White Christmas (1954)

Bing Crosby returns with another rendition of White Christmas in this 50s film of the same name and a film that is as festive as it gets. With lavish sets and elaborate dance numbers, this film is sure to get you in the dancing mood. Get the look with novelty prints, red velvet and anything sequinned.

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

It wouldn’t be a proper Christmas movie list without at least one animation, so here’s a 60s classic from Peanuts and Charlie Brown. Perfect for a cosy night in, seal the style with block primary colours and a touch of tartan or check patterns.
