My Thing: Neither old nor modern. Just good clothes.
My style might not always be too adventurous but I like things that are classic and timeless. Classic styles are forever to me. With the music, architecture, even movie posters and typography, every element in the old movies influenced me a lot when I was younger. Here, Anna Karina’s character, Odile is wearing a simple crew neck sweater and tartan check pleated skirt. This outfit is so simple but I think it’s perfect. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t look old or modern. It’s simply just good clothes.
Above: Odile meets two guys, Franz and Arther in an English language class and they become friends. Odile and Arthur decide to dance and Franz joins them as they perform a dance routine. Fabulous scene from the movie.
When I wear a sweater, I often do it like a college student. That’s just my thing. No fancy accessories needed. Maybe just with good shoes and not sneakers.
My colour choice for old fashioned cable knit sweaters is THIS.
Keep it simple. Good personality is all you need.
