Do you love Lara Jean’s outfits? Then you’ve come to the right place!
When To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before first came out we were obsessed with Lara Jean’s style. In fact we were so obsessed we put together a little guide on how to dress like Lara Jean. So of course we had to do one for To All The Boys: P.S I Still Love You!
Here’s how to recreate Lara Jean’s outfits in To All the Boys: P.S I Still Love You.
Lara Jean's Style In To All The Boys 2
The Costume Designer for To All The Boys: P.S I Still Love You, Lorraine Carson, but a lot of thought into Lara Jean’s style choices.
“Lara Jean has become an iconic character, but we wanted to enhance upon the last film while keeping a sense of reality to her closet. She’s a teenager, so she didn’t go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. We wanted each item of clothing to be something that could’ve been somewhere in the various piles of clothing in her bedroom. So a lot of what we did was a mix of vintage and contemporary — something a teenager could afford.”
Lara Jean’s fashion sense is part of what made her unique, so it’s only natural for her wardrobe and tastes to grow and expand along with her. “That was our challenge,” says Carson. “To create a look that was still youthful and sweet, but less baby doll. So we started to create a silhouette — where she’s in clothing that’s more fitted. We took her out of chunky boots and put her into heels, but kept the heels chunky so it was still very much in line with the LJ personality.”
Lara Jean's Red Dress
There are three standout outfits that Lara Jean wears in the film.
The first is a red Rebecca Vallance dress that Lara Jean wears on her first official date with Peter. “I just love that dress,” says To All The Boys author Jenny Han. “She looks like a present.”
Lara Jean's Valentines Day Dress
The Chain of Hearts dress that Lara Jean wears on Valentine’s Day is made by HVN, the dress was already two seasons old when filming began and the only remaining one in Lana Condor’s size had to be purchased on a resale website out of Paris. It was too bright for the film’s HD cameras, however, so Carson teched the fabric — a dye technique she acquired from her days working in theater — gradually increasing the level of pink in the dress in order to prevent it from blanching on screen.
The result, which is paired with red patent lace up heels from Gravity Pope, is the perfect pale pink Valentine’s Day dress of every girl’s dreams.
The exact dress isn’t currently available but we found a few similar ones below, and a few dresses that are very like Lara Jean’s taste in clothes.
Lara Jean's Stunning Gown
Lara Jean wears a seafoam green J. Mendel dress as she has her Cinderella moment, descending the staircase at Belleview.
Carson shortened the dress by a tier to “allow LJ to dance, do snow angels, and run in the snow.” She then wrapped the extra fabric around the shoulders, creating a look reminiscent of a 1950s cocktail dress, and paired it with gold Aldo shoes.
It’s very hard to find a seafoam green dress, and let’s face it, the original is totally out of our budget, but we found a number of gorgeous blue dresses that we’re sure Lara Jean would love!
Lara Jean's Casual Style
One of the other stand-out outfits that Lara Jean wears in TATBILB2 is when she goes to volunteer at Belleview and reunites with John Ambrose.
She wears her trademark coat, chunky boots and a very cute pair of tweed shorts. Not to mention an eye-catching shirt embellished shirt.
We didn’t mange to find a pair of tweed shorts, but we did find a stunning tweed playsuit. Later in the movie Lara Jean wears a tweed top when she’s in class with Peter, it looks like it matches the shorts – Lara Jean sure does know how to mix and match clothes! The playsuit it a great choice to copy Lara Jean’s style, as you can wear it on it’s own or pair it with a grey jumper and embellished collar.
If you’re looking for a coat like Lara Jean’s we found one from ASOS.
Another Lara jean signature is her bow earrings. We found a similar pair from Olivia Burton.
