Become A British Spy: Get the Bomb Girls Look
05.11.13 by reelz
Last week's episode of Bomb Girls ended up going in a very surprising direction and we got our first introductions to Gladys' latest admirer, the rather dashing Mr. Perry. However, it soon became clear that he wasn't just another Gladys worshiper, but a spy as well. We don't think we've see the end of Clifford Perry (if that is actually even his name), and we're not all that sad about it, so in honor of his first appearance, this week's Get the Look will focus on the man himself. And, because we're not sure that the awesome trench coats should be for the boys only, we'll also include something for the ladies. Find out how to become a British spy 1940s style and don't forget to work on that accent.
Tune in to all new Bomb Girls episodes Wednesdays
9p ET/ 6p PT for more British(?) spy madness.
The fedora hat: a very important spy accessory. A very important accessory period. Bringing immediate class and sophistication to any males or females alike, this hat will convey high importance and stop people asking too many questions — and it will act as a very effective bad-hair-day cover up. Want Mr Perry's look alike hat? Head to the Village Hat Shop and spend around $69. Ladies, fedoras are so in right now you can pretty much go anywhere. For a very affordable head accessory with a pop of color (who said spies had to blend in) visit Payless.com and spend only $10.
Next up, the trench coat. This classic spy attire is absolutely essential for full spy-ability. Not only does it help blend in for a nightly spy rendezvous, as with the fedora, it also expresses immediate sophistication at the highest degree. You can get the men's black wool trench coat featured above for only $249. Uh, what are you waiting for? Ladies, we're not leaving you out. Get this stylish Tahari Coat from only $114.99.
Every dashing spy needs a dashing silk tie to complete his outfit. (Sorry ladies you're on your own here). Get the blue patterned tie above from Nordstrom for $75 and the gold silk tie from Brooks Brothers for $115 and add a little silk to that classy spy look. And, finally don't forget the fake mustache. Never forget the mustache. Ok, so there may not have been a facial hair in sight in last week's Bomb Girls episode but every spy needs a disguise? Right?
