Clothing from 500 Days of Summer

500-days-of-summer-clothingOne way 500 Days of Summer stands out is in the clothing and costumes of the cast. Especially inspiring is the clothes that Zooey Deschanel and Joesph Gordon-Levitt wear.

Hollywood Crush had the opportunity to ask a few questions of the film’s costume designer, Hope Hanafin, who gives some insight into the clothing from 500 Days of Summer.

Did you go only vintage shopping for Summer Finn?

Hope Hanafin: A lot of it is vintage, but there’s still plenty that’s not. Though I have great respect for these romantic comedies where secretaries are wearing Prada, I wanted [“500 Days”] to be kind of the anti-“Sex and the City.” So, Zooey’s wearing clothes that her character really could afford, things are also repeated. Her clothes are a mix of things from [places like] Old Navy, GAP, BCBG and then there’s a lot of vintage. But not all of it was glamorous vintage. She has a Built By Wendy denim skirt and a couple other great things.

  6. I was able to find a dress almost identical to the “copy room” dress (worn in the picture featured in the article) at That item has sold out since I bought mine. There are some lovely vintage-inspired items that favor Summer’s style, and they even did a blog entry about her!
