Annie Hall -Style Inspiration
I saw Woody Allen’s cult classic ‘Annie Hall’ a while back, at the BFI London. I really loved this film, just as much as I knew I would. Annie Hall played by Diane Keating is one seriously stylish lady. In the 70′s this look was new and exciting, costume designer Ruth Morley wasn’t a fan. However, Allen insisted that Diane wear her own clothes! stating “leave her, She’s a genius. Let her wear what she wants.” Keating has such a classic sense of style, she dresses in a masculine way yet she looks so chic and sexy. I adore this mix of masculine and feminine. I particularly loved the fedora/bowler hats, the tweed, the waistcoats, the wide legged chinos, the masculine shirts, the studious glasses and the androgynous ‘grammy’ tie.
I often find myself drawn to mens clothes and I remember it being one of the perks of having a boyfriend! I guess the whole boyfriend blazer/jeans thing is a testament to this. I recently found some of my dad’s old waistcoats, that I love. I always make sure to check the mens section in Primark/Pennies.. along with all the usual vintage shops and markets.. I have found a few gems there! If your a bit behind (like myself!) and you haven’t seen this film, I strongly advise you do. Its fabulously quirky and worth watching for style inspiration alone! Ax
