This outfit is actually inspired by one of Timothee Chalamet’s outfits in Little Women (2019), namely this velvet waistcoat (I may not like the film’s costume design from a historical accuracy standpoint, but I do like the clothes for myself.) I tried pairing my waistcoat with gray pants like in the photo, but it made me look like a waiter/valet, so I switched to this louder pair instead. I also had another go at a faux “watch chain”, and I think like this one better than my previous attempt. The big collar of my shirt, though, gives the outfit a 1970s vibe, hence the post title.
I had previously titled a post “Dapper Dog” because I accessorized the outfit in that post with a brooch of a dog wearing a bow tie, so naturally, here, where I’m wearing my cat(s) brooch, the title is inevitable. This waistcoat is one of the velvet ones that I mentioned in last week’s post – initially, I didn’t intend to get a black waistcoat, thinking it is too waitress-y, but after looking around a bit, I realized it is an absolute classic. And it all depends on how you style it anyway, so I’m looking forward to wearing it more.
