Miss Honey From Matilda Is My Summer Style Inspiration

In case you haven't noticed, our Who What Wear editors are very into throwback style moments right now. Kristen is currently channeling Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr. Ripley, while Aemilia is following in the chic footsteps of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. As for me? I've got my eyes on a certain iconic 1996 movie: Matilda.

Specifically, I find myself dressing like Miss Honey—and I'm not mad about it. Think: prim collared dresses, pastels, cardigans, and teacher-approved midi lengths. Things you'd wear while sipping chamomile tea and grading papers. Brands like Christy Dawn, HVN, and Reformation are currently adding fuel to the fire for me, and I find myself swiping up all their easy-to-wear dresses for work. Can you blame me? Scroll down to revisit what Miss Honey wore in the movie and to shop the picks I think she would approve of.
