Wet Hot American Summer
I never went to camp. So I feel as though I have this gaping hole in my life, an emptiness that can't be filled. The closest thing I'll get to camp is watching this movie. With summer coming to a close, everybody at Camp Firewood has one final chance to hook up. Naturally, things get weird as crushes and romances start to emerge. And by weird, I mean hilarious. A cult movie if there ever was one.

Camp Nowhere
This was every kid's fantasy until they hit puberty. You find some random crazy dude in your town, come up with a bunch of fake camps and then take over a hippy commune for a whole summer with your friends. Actually, it becomes every adult's dream too. Strange. If you've never seen it, rent it. Now. Click through to shop the style.

The Sandlot
After watching this movie, one thing becomes insanely clear. You, no matter what age you are, will do anything to get a pair of PF Flyers--the shoes guaranteed to make a kid run faster and jump higher. It's full of classic scenes like Wendy Peffercorn at the pool, the Babe Ruth baseball and of course anything with James Earl Jones. If you haven't watched it, I question your childhood.

Addams Family Values
This is easily one of my family's favorite movies. The Addams family welcomes a new baby, the lovable Pubert. In a ploy to steal Uncle Fester's money, Debbie Jelinsky infiltrates their home under the guise of a nanny. She has Wednesday and Pugsley sent away to summer camp and seduces Fester before trying to kill him several times. The best part is when they burn down camp Chippewa. Fine family fun, if your family is cool. Click through to shop the style.

The Parent Trap
Before Lindsay got all Lohan on us, she captured the hearts of America in the '90s remake of The Parent Trap. Everybody knows the story: their parents separated shortly after they were born, each taking one of their twin daughters. Some years later, they're both absurdly rich with nice houses and work in ridiculously tough industries. Fate has it that Annie James and Hallie Parker end up at the same camp and they both like oreos with…with peanut butter! That is wild. Click through to shop the style.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Oh man, this movie is phenomenal. Everything about it is perfect. Vicky and Cristina find themselves in Barcelona where they encounter an artist, aptly played by Javier Bardem. He invites them to eat well, drink good wine and make love. Oh, okay, cool. Vicky isn't really into it, but Cristina is all about it. She begins an intense relationship with Juan Antonio and becomes entangled with him and his crazy ex, Maria Elena. It just makes you want to be a crazy person and maybe move to Spain. But you know, probably best to stay where you are. Click through to shop the style.

Almost Famous
The movie follows William Miller, a young writer who is following Stillwater, an up-and-coming rock band. While the movie is great as a hole, Kate Hudson's role of Penny Lane is a real bright spot. Penny Lane isn't a groupie, she's a band-aid, a kind of super groupie. She's a legend with perfect '70s style. It was also this movie that lead me to scream "I am a golden god!" many, many times throughout my life. Click through to shop the style.

I Know What You Did Last Summer
You know that one summer when you accidentally commit vehicular manslaughter and then accidentally dump the body in an ocean and then make a pact to never speak of it again. Did it come back to haunt you the next summer and presumably the one after? It didn't? You're lucky. Not so lucky were these kids. But hey, that's a cool cardigan. Click through to shop the style.

Dirty Dancing
As I write this, "The Time of My Life" is coming into my head. And now it's moved to that weird Hawaiian song, shut up, Lisa. Dirty Dancing is pretty much the quintessential summer movie. It's also one of those movies that you own, but force yourself to watch on TV with commercials at the same time. Otherwise known as a classic. Click through to shop the style.
Dirty Dancing
Indy embarks on a quest to find the Holy Grail and save it from the clutches of Nazi Germany. It's got everything we love about the Indiana Jones Saga: mystery, adventure, weird skeletons, crypts—plus ridiculously good style. I don't condone Ilsa's politics and I think she's a head case, but the woman had impeccable style. But of course, good clothes don't right a wrong. Click through to shop the style.
Blue Crush
Ahhh, the movie that made every girl I know want to turn pro-surfer. Blue Crush is the story of Anne-Marie, a young Hawaiian surfer girl trying to make it to the big leagues. The story culminates at the Pipe Masters Finals and, as you all know, pipe is the deadliest wave in the world. You don't just get worked there, you die. If you're at all interested in coming-of-age tales, surfing or the politics of hotel maintenance--put it on your Netflix queue. Click through to shop the style.
