Romanticizing the past is something almost all of us do, in one way or another. Whether you’re finding inspiration in decades past, watching movies from times long ago, or simply stalking Pinterest for everything vintage, there’s something special about history — especially when it comes to fashion. And the ’70s certainly have a special place in our hearts, thanks to how the decade defined aesthetic, and it seems like even celebrities agree. Jennifer Lawrence, for instance, is giving us major Almost Famous vibes, and is taking us on a trip down memory (or should we say Penny?) lane.
This simple look packs a #throwback punch with a millennial twist. So excuse us, because we know what we’ll be wearing all fall.
The key to a modern Penny Lane, à la Jennifer Lawrence?
The perfect pair of denim. While you could go to the more expected route with a wide-legged cut or a striking bell-bottom, that’s not necessary to channel Penny’s style. Choose a medium wash, high-rise jean like Jennifer, who paired her denim with a cross-stitched vest and orange velvet A.L.C. cardigan.
The actress’s whole look feels reminiscent of the ’70s without looking like a costume, which is harder to do than it sounds. Our favorite part of the look, however, has to be the accessories. We’re partial to the simple black round Oliver Peoples The Row sunglasses and leather fringe bag with a rainbow strap that brought the whole ensemble together.
In the end, the little things can make a big statement.
When finished off with the right amount of nonchalance, and simple hair and makeup, you have a throwback look worthy of wearing any day of the week.
