film style: ANNIE HALL

Woody Allen’s Annie Hall takes place in 1977 New York City, hyper-focusing on the relationship between two people with fascinating neuroses. In the film, Diane Keaton’s look is balanced by layers of masculine and feminine details, a ‘gamine tomboy’. I love Annie Hall and am obsessed with most Woody Allen movies from the late 70’s-early 80’s (and some beyond), partly because of how well he constructs New York City as a character in his films. On top of all this, I’m really feeling androgenous style, so I thought I would reconstruct some looks from Annie Hall:

anniestanding1This is probably the most iconic outfit from the film; this is from the scene after they meet at the racket club and have some hilarious inner-monologues over wine. I found some pieces that are airy enough to stand up to a New York summer, and also conversions from men’s fashion, plus some colorful wedges to modernize Annie’s look. The second outfit from the movie is pretty timeless, but I picked out some current pieces I think look cool – enjoy! Click here to check out Film Style: Warriors.
