WISHFLIX – HOUSE PARTY EDITION
As we continue to long for human interaction during the “age of social distancing” we have turned to vicariously partying through these films of epic ragers. Check out some of our favorite party night movies and peep the fits that we’d wear to the functions! Shop the looks
House Party (1990)
Kid ‘n Play do what they do best, rapping and dancing their way through an hour and a half of shenanigans in House Party. So a fun, colorful, lighthearted outfit is befitting of such an infectiously energetic movie. The Stussy Deluxe Baroque shirt has a fun pattern and pairs well with Purple slim fit painted pants. The white Rhude socks and white Air Max 1 DNA sneaker make this into a turly 90s-inspired fit. Bonus: You are as cool as Play in the movie if you can pull off a lime green Carhartt bucket with white and purple sneakers.
Project X (2012)
Project X is the tale of three high school friends that decide to increase their popularity by throwing the most unforgettable house party ever, then proceed to succeed beyond their wildest dreams. The nature of the film made a corresponding outfit extremely fun to bring together. The “Xtasea” Spiral Tie Dye t-shirt is more than necessary; as are the breathable Stussy Deluxe Jacquard Nylon Shorts are perfect for surviving a party featuring wall-to-wall chaos. Steel New Balance X-Racer sneakers (with no socks), a backwards Carhartt dad cap and yellow-lensed Chinatown Market Smiley glasses bring together a look fit for a party you wouldn’t want your mom to know about.
National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978)
John Belushi is a legend. That has nothing to do with any of this, but it needed to be stated. Feuding fraternity houses and a sabotaging dean make for a classic farce with an epic toga party. The ensemble inspired by the film is based on two classic college boy looks worn by Belushi in the film. The first outfit is a plaid short-college sweatshirt combo and the other includes a track jacket worn over a button up shirt in a way that only a 1970s frat boy could. A Stripe Zip Neck Polo Shirt layered over a Laurel Wreath Shell Jacket, from the Fred Perry x Beams collection, modernizes this look well. A bit of edge is brought to the look by the Patwork Short by Norwood Chapters and the Adidas Consortium x Human Made Superstar 80s.
Superbadstars Michael Cera and a budding menswear style icon in Jonah Hill, as two high school buddies pledged to a night of debauchery before they go to separate colleges. This look needs to fit a kid that has no idea what they are in for. BornxRaised Live and Die Shorts with a striped Carhartt WIP tee is a fit that is a innocent and rambunctious as the film’s co-stars. The innocence is played up by a timeless Noon Goons stripe sock and Onitsuka Tiger Horizonia. The Rokit hip bag lets everyone in the party know you are over prepared, probably because you are not used to being there.
American Pie (1999)
Half of the budget for this film must have gone towards short-sleeved button-up shirts. This is perfect for a teen comedy in a midwest setting, that would go on to be called “gross and tasteless” by critics. Worn with, Reese Cooper cargo pants and Nike Air Tailwind 79 sneakers, this outfit could be worn by Stifler himself. The Rhude socks, Commes Des Garcon Man fragrance, and Boy Smells candle are all fitting accessories for impressing someone you would do anything to be near.
