Okay fashionistas, if you haven’t seen Annie Hall if not for the movie itself, it needs to be on your must see list for the 70s tomboy, geek chic looks. Diane Keaton not only shines as a starlet, but rocks some great style. Now that we’re in 2012, how do we go about creating 70s menswear looks without being dated? Look no further, we’re here to share some must have items to become a modern day Annie Hall.
Step 1: Get yourself a blazer or vest
This will create the more boxed shape of the 70s, but make sure it still has some feminine flair in the details and isn’t big enough to get lost in. This blazer from Nordstrom is perfect and has some great variety.
Step 2: Wear high-waisted trousers
These will elongate your legs and are opposite to the low-riding jeans that us women are used to wearing, creating a more mens-inspired look. Adding a belt will also cinch in the waist to show off those womanly curves. Topshop‘s chinos are just the thing for your tomboy fashion.
Step 3: Accessorize with a scarf or large bag
If Annie Hall’s tie is too much for you try adding a lightweight scarf. When it comes to bags, in the 70s we saw woman coming into their own in the work field. Carrying a large bag for all your necessities will keep you true to the decade. Try a satchel or tote bag like the bag from Forever 21.
Step 4: Invest in a few good long sleeve shirts
Find some with a fitted body and different detailing in the pockets and arm lengths to give you a more modern style. Check out this blouse with a vest or large jacket from Banana Republic.
