I remember the first time I stumbled across Annie Hall. I was flipping through the pages of It by Alexa Chung and found a picture of Annie Hall dressed like a man. I fell in love. Chung wrote, " The first film character I truly fell in love with because of the way she dressed was Annie Hall […] Her femininity, mixed with tomboyish silhouettes and scruffy thrown-together looks, is something I still reference heavily now. I love the seventies dork glasses, the striped men's shirts, the great tweed jackets and frilly Victorian tops she mixes together so well." It's no surprise that this look has been reinterpreted by women across the globe.
I've always had a thing for menswear, ties, suits, dress pants, and vests are a must in my book. Yesterday, I was eating dinner at Gargiulo's in Brooklyn with my boyfriends family and all the men were dressed up. My boyfriend's brother was wearing a grey pinstripe vest that I just had to get my hands on. Surprisingly, at the end of the night he actually gave it to me.
Once I had the vest in my hands there was only one problem; I didn't know how to style it. I immediately knew who would help me. I put on Annie Hall and payed close attention to all her menswear inspired outfits. I was inspired by the look down below; I'm wearing a grey pinstripe vest, a nude button up from American Apparel, Grey boyfriend jeans from RES Denim, and a pair of Marc Fisher oxford flats.
If you haven't seen this Woody Allen film yet I totally recommend it! It's about the downfall of a relationship.
