Cinema Chic: Love Story, in honor of Valentines Day
As a tribute to Valentines Day, I thought I'd inaugurate Cinema Chic with Love Story. What could be more appropriate?! In this quintessential boy meets girl, boy marries girl romance, Ali McGraw exemplifies classic American style that's as current today as it was in 1970. Most of what she wears as the quick witted Radcliffe musician are considered must have staples, and should be a part of every females closet.....
1. The Camel Coat
With its tie waist, turned up collar and neutral palette, it's the perfect topper to wear over anything; jeans, pants, skirts and dresses.
2. The Plaid Pleated Skirt
Team with a turtleneck and tights. For an extra edge try a rugged utility boot or suede over the knee boot to create today's trendier application.
3. The Pea Coat
Nothing portrays classic cool like an ink navy pea coat. This military inspired jacket is timeless
4. The Red Ladylike Dress
Think Kate Middleton...Long sleeves, round collar, fitted waist, and fluid skirt....the all occasion winner. Looks good on most body types, and provides the perfect canvas for accessories that define your own personal style.
5. White Jeans
Now a seasonless trend, the white jean paired with your favorite tee remains a classy cousin to the traditional blue denim. Throw on a blazer and heels for a dressier attitude.
6. Long White Coat, Faux Fur Hat
Unmatched elegance for the cold winter months.
7. The Knit Cap
Casual, modern and easy...
Happy Valentines Day! If you're staying in tonight, celebrating this love filled day with friends, significant others, husbands, wives, pets, or hunkering down alone... grab a big bowl of fresh popcorn ( popped in healthy olive oil of course ) and turn on my favorite TV channel, Turner Classic Movies ( TCM ) and enter what I call movie heaven...
