I recently saw Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’ on a screen laid out on the roof-top of a bar in Shoreditch. The movie as well as the setting was a great experience and I enjoyed myself thoroughly.
Expectedly the movie stars Diane Keaton and this post is about the fashion that is inspired by her looks and outfits from the movie. I cannot pull off the shirt and tie looks from her later Woody Allen movies but there are two particular looks from this movie that I loved. One was the buttoned up shirt and long coat and the other is the turtle-neck with the button down cardigan.
I loved the outfits. And the great thing about a look like this is that forty years on, it still looks like it could be worn by fashion bloggers everywhere. And it has definitely been worn by this fashion blogger!
I tried out the first look for myself but had to add my own two-bit – hope you don’t think I have ruined the Diana Keaton look! I thought her look was too plain for my day out and had to add a bib necklace.
The first look with the turtleneck and cardigan is a little too winter friendly to resort to right now so I will keep that for the later cold days. I will be sure to keep you updated.
I also wanted to end this post with this great picture from that night at the movies – on the left are the steel and glass office buildings of London and on the right, Woody Allen from Manhattan. Lovely.
