I have been on a major movie binge lately. Seriously, I’ve spent more money at the Arc Light than I’d care to admit. Out of the many movies I saw, American Hustle was hands-down my favorite. To be honest I didn’t even know what it was about (I rarely watch trailers before seeing a film) but I knew I wanted to see it for the wardrobe.Well the wardrobe did not disappoint and I’m not even a huge fan of 70s fashion! Amy Adams, for me, was the style star of the movie. My favorite look was her bad-girl leather look. It effortlessly blended bad with sexy and here is how you can get the look.
It is important to keep this look modern, so opt for a pair of skinny leather pants or leather leggings. As far as footwear goes, I would rock a pair of thigh high boots for the ultimate bad-girl look.
Let’s be realistic for a minute, the bra-less/ deep V look that we saw in the movie isn’t going to slide in real life. BUT the peek-a-boo bra look is totally modern and very “in” today. So why not add a sexy lace bra.
You can really bring on the essence of the 70s with the accessories – the sunglasses being the most important. American Apparel’s ‘Farrah’ sunglasses are super 70’s and they won’t break the bank.
For the bag I am a big fan of this one by 3.1 Phillip Lim. The bag is definitely modern but has a hint of that American Hustle 70’s vibe.
Finally, nothing says retro-chic like a pair of gold hoop earrings . This seemingly minor detail really pulls the whole look together.
