Inspired By: Silver Linings Playbook

Recently, I saw Silver Linings Playbook since it was recommended to me by a friend (thanks, Avra!) and it's a fantastic film. Based on a novel by Mathew Quick, this romantic comedy-drama has realistically flawed characters who you root for, very emotional scenes, great lines ("Calm down, crazy!"), and a funny dance scene. There's enough drama to showcase the amazing range of the actors and enough comedy that it lifts the at-times moody tone of the film.
The movie has been nominated for eight Academy Awards, such as Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress.
Inspired By: Silver Linings Playbook -- Patrick
{Click above for item info}

Patrick "Pat" Solitano (played by Bradley Cooper), who has bipolar disorder, is released from a mental health facility into his parents care after being treated for eight months. He discovers that his wife has moved away, so his goal is to get back on his feet and reconcile with his wife. One evening at a friend's house, he meets Tiffany; through a series of odd circumstances they decide to help one another -- she will give a letter to his wife and he will be her partner in a dance competition.  
To dress like Pat on a casual day, wear a green jacket, blue hoodie, jeans, blue Converse, and football-shaped earrings since he's an Eagles fan. For a fancy occassion, opt for a black blazer, white blouse, faux leather pants (instead of a black garbage bag), and sparkly heels. The envelope necklace is for the letter Pat writes to his wife.

Inspired By: Silver Linings Playbook -- Tiffany
Tiffany Maxwell (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is a young widow and recovering sex addict who has lost her job. She's wanted to be in a dance competition for years, so she persuades Pat into being her partner since it will show his wife that he's dedicated and can be a better man. Through shared neuroses, anger issues, and being the black sheep of their families, Tiffany and Pat become friends.
In order to dress like Tiffany, put on a black coat, black lacey dress, black scarf, heart necklace, and black studded pumps. For running or practicing a dance routine, wear a black shirt, purple tank top, gray athletic capris, and bright sneakers.

The Poster
Inspired By: Silver Linings Playbook Poster
Taking inspiration from the poster, these two outfits incorporate black and white stripes with bright pops of yellow. The first outfit consists of a yellow cardigan, belted dress, love ring, and short brown boots. For the second outfit, wear a striped sweater, jeans, neon yellow purse, and yellow bow flats. Keep a yellow notebook in your purse for writing notes to your love.

This gif from a scene in the movie cracks me up...
