Ever Present Past: Annie Hall
The movie Annie Hall made Diane Keaton into a style icon. If you have not seen this classic Woody Allen film you really should. Watch it as soon as you can! The movie is sharp and witty. You can identify with Annie and laugh at Woody’s character. Annie Hall’s style is what I would call, “grown-up tomboy chic.” Borrowing from the boys, but giving it that girly touch. The grown-up tomboy chic look is never frumpy or unflattering. My favorite look from the movie is the boyfriend blazer and button down combo.
This look requires an oversized blazer. Check out a local thrift store to find a great vintage version. Make sure to check the men’s section too. Hidden gems are all over a thrift store. The emerald-green jewel tone blazer above is for sale on Etsy. Rolling or scrunching up the sleeves on a boyfriend blazer is what keeps it from looking frumpy. Vintage fashion, such as that of Annie Hall, is meant to inspire an outfit. It’s best to not completely copy or recreate a look. You want to specialize the look to you and make it unique. The model made this look unique by wearing the boyfriend blazer with jeans.
To further make this look your own, pair this white and black polka dot button down ruffle blouse with the emerald-green boyfriend blazer. The color of the boyfriend blazer and the polka dot pattern will complement each other in the best possible way. To finish the look, add some accessories. Try wearing big hoop earrings and your hair up in a bun to add a touch of glam. Or simply layer tons of bracelets on one arm. Remember to have fun creating your own Annie Hall look and make sure to watch the movie!
