Style Steal: Lara Jean is a Fashion Icon

Setting aside the fact that Lana Condor is completely gorgeous all on her own, she looked absolutely stunning as Lara Jean Covey — the main character of the Netflix hit To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Costume designer of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Rafaella Rabinovich, took inspiration from ‘90s era Vogue and K-pop when designing outfits for Lara Jean. Many of the pieces for the movie were bought from stores like Forever 21, H&M, Urban Outfitters, ASOS, and various thrift stores, which makes them super accessible for anyone to buy. Below is a list of some of the most iconic outfits from the movie and where to find the pieces in stores.
