Today I Like ... 70s Style

Sean and I finally saw "Argo" last week and people, it is so good. Perfectly paced, relevant and a period piece, to boot! I found myself kinda digging the outfits the ladies wore, which is hilarious because I never could have imagined that a few years ago. But, once I thought about it, I realized everything that was popular in the 70s — neutral colors, jewel tones, plaids, boots — makes a perfect fall wardrobe! How about a quick history lesson?
Yves St. Laurent made safari style chic in the 70s, with the help of his muses, Betty Catroux and Loulou de la Falaise. Lots of tan, big pockets and big sunglasses.

Ali Macgraw popularized preppy chic in "Love Story." is anything more timeless than this tweed skirt + peacoat combo? Paired with Ryan O'Neal in a plaid blazer, this looks like an ad for Harvard in the fall.

 Meryl Streep looked casually chic with tall brown boots tucked under a trench coat in "Kramer vs. Kramer."

And the Charlie's Angels girls managed to make office-ready skirts and blouses look sexy.
