Get the Look: Goldie Hawn in Overboard

Learn more about high cut swimwear and 80’s fashion by studying some of Goldie Hawn’s best looks from the 1987 movie Overboard.

Overboard (1987) is a romantic comedy about a rich lady that loses her memory. They recently announced a redo version starring Anna Faris, Eva Longoria and John Hannah where the tables are turned and a wealthy man gets amnesia. But his costumes are no good for boat parties or beach adjacent EDM festivals, such as the ones coming up in Florida, Mexico and the Carribean.

Hawn is Kate Hudson’s mother and Hudson is the star band aid in every female music fan’s favorite rock movie ever Almost Famous, so it’s like a circle of life and slutty raver costumes in a way.

Captain Epaulettes

The Art Deco Cocktail Ring ($116.10) is by RebekaJewelry, and these are Kate Spade Bright Idea Stud Earrings in Gold ($39). The Sperry Top-Sider Authentic Original Vida Boat Shoe in Rose Gold ($94.99) will help you stand on a boat and match the epaulettes. Unfortunately they no longer make white sequined captain jackets, and the original is probably designer. We suggest sewing the Shine Trim Metal Bling Epaulet ($14.50) to a white open front jacket such as the L.L. Bean Pima Cotton Cardigan ($34.99). Then douse yourself in NYX Cosmetics Face & Body Glitter in Crystal ($6) for a similar effect. The Wolf & Whistle Plunge Swimsuit (On sale for $29) has the same gold detail as the one in the movie. That is a Rhinestone Flower Ponytail Holder Updo Hair Clip ($15.95) and a Topshop Metallic Hair Scrunchie ($4.50) instead of a captain hat. Get red-orange nails with OPI Nail Polish in It’s a Piazza Cake ($8.69).

Animal Print/Zebra

In this scene Hawn wears an extreme monokini with a matching animal print kimono. The Wicked Temptations Deep V Front Monokini ($33.95) is also zebra with red trim. It has a high thigh cut and plunge neck that is popular this season, and comes at an affordable price. The Zee Zebra Print Kimono ($59) is available in short, mid and full lengths. Those are the Kendall + Kylie Vivian Sunglasses in Red ($70). Accessorize with the Crystal Allure Multirow Stretch Bracelet ($39) and Stainless Steel Red Glitter Round Stud Earrings ($12.99). Maybe she is wearing red sandals to match the glasses.

Metallic Trenchcoat

Metallic Trench and Bow

Luckily enough there is the Capulet Tati Metallic Belted Trench ($260), which makes a dramatic cover up. Wear it with a Forever 21 Shimmer Bow-Front Headwrap ($2.45) to keep the hair out of your eyes.
