How to Channel Parker Posey's "Party Girl" in 2016

In 1995's Party Girl, Parker Posey played Mary, the queen of the downtown demimonde, a social butterfly known as much for her banter as for a colorful wardrobe that at one point included a "diva velvet glam section." Mary mixed everything from then au courant labels like Todd Oldham to vintage (sometimes stolen) Chanel jackets with wild abandon, a high-low hodgepodge that feels very 2016. Here, 10 key pieces you can use to channel the cult classic.

    Winona might have been the quintessential It girl, but Parker Posey's Mary in Party Girl was the dreamboat socialite of the downtown, a precursor, in style and personality, to all the party girls who followed, from Chloe Sevigny to Paris Hilton. Photo courtesy the Everett Collection.
