The ultimate icon in androgynous style
“Nobody ever made high-waisted trousers and a tie look as good as Annie Hall. Her femininity, mixed with tomboyish silhouettes and scruffy thrown-together looks, is something I still reference heavily now.” – Alexa Chung.
For anyone who has a penchant for ‘70s fashion or borrowing your boyfriend’s suits, Annie Hall’s character (played by Diane Keaton) in Woody Allen’s Oscar-winning rom-com will have had a lasting impact on your sartorial choices.
Keaton’s chic, menswear aesthetic in the movie – most of the clothes were her own that she wore in the film – inspired women to mimic her easy, ‘masculine’ style of dress soon after its release. And now, more than ever, designers are turning to the trailblazer yet again for their Spring Summer 2017 collections. Supersize blazers and baggy trouser suits were all the rage at shows from Céline to Vetements during Paris Fashion Week.
Here’s how you can achieve the look yourself in three easy steps…
Borrow your dad’s tie
Stick to minimal colourways like navy and black.
Layer, layer, layer
Key essentials: long coats, felt bowler hat, bijoux scarves, taupe trousers, brogues and a button-down shirt.
Buy a pair of oversized glasses
The ultimate specs appeal. We’re still obsessing over her signature geek-chic faded tint frames in the film.
