dressed up like a lady: Jacket, sweater, flares -- HIT IT!

Jacket, sweater, flares -- HIT IT!

I can't tell you how much I love this staple 70's look. Flares with a jacket, vest or sportcoat, and a preppy little sweater underneath -- which in this case, takes the form of a nice, ribbed, merino wool, bodycon turtleneck.

Flares: River Island via ASOS 
Shoes: Vintage Enzo Angolini via Purevintageclothing
Sweater: Thrifted
Harris Tweed Jacket: Thrifted

I must tell you, I do have a cache of inspiration photos for this look.

 Charlotte Rampling...

Charlie's Angels....

Shelley Hack (also a sometime Angel...)

Of course, I think another reason I love this look is because something about it feels like it was stolen from the Boys Club. ;)


  1. Gorgeous look and vintage pics!
    Love those flares!


    P.S. Thanks for your awesome, hysterical comment :)

  2. Great outfit, those flares really are the best!

  3. I love that flared/blazer combo of the 70s. I've tried to pull it off, but my H&M flares are a bit too tame. You, on the other hand, totally capture it!

    Random question: what's your favorite vegan breakfast entree to make? I'm having a vegan friend over for brunch next week and I'd like to do something other than tofu eggs. . .

  4. a tweed jacket & a turtleneck
    sweater is soooooooo cool forever and ever.

  5. Perfect jeans! I love 70's fashion! I would love to travel back in time and steal all the greatest fashions from each decade.

  6. I am so glad that wide leg jeans are coming back!

    Many days, I am stuck in the 80s. Like today...

  7. Your jeans reminds me of "dazed and Confused" classic.
