Out of all the movies nominated for best costume design this year, no other film echoes exactly what is happening in fashion now better than Inherent Vice. Based off of Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name, the film follows the adventures of stoner sleuth Larry “Doc” Sportello (played by Joaquin Phoenix) at the turn of the decade when fashion boogied from the psychedelic mod era of the 60s to the easy surfer culture of the early 1970s. Academy Award winning costume designer Mark Bridges worked hard scouring vintage shops and recreating looks that not only reflected this moment in fashion history but also defined these unforgettable characters.

But no worries--we’ve done the digging for you. To achieve Doc’s look, choose pieces that have a lived-in feel, like faded denim shirts, and stick to a muted palette. The key twist? Feminine tailoring. If you’d rather channel the beach babe vibes of Katherine Waterston’s character Shasta Fay Hepworth, go for classic 70s silhouettes, such as a shift dress, or groovy accessories—bring on the fringe.
