When I think of glamour, I think of this photo of model Beverly Johnson from Glamour's May 1973 issue. Take a look at her fabulous outfit-and the accessories I would wear it with today.
The story goes that in 1970, 17-year-old Beverly Johnson walked into the Glamour offices and was given a modeling assignment on the spot. By the time this photo was featured, she had been on the cover three times. It's not hard to see why: she's gorgeous! And her clothes are completely of the moment.
This shot reminds me that prints can be fun without being overwhelming, especially on something flowy like wide-leg pants. Add accessories like the ones here-a wedge sandal, classic sunglasses and something personal, such as this pearl bracelet, and you're set.

I love mixing prints.

A tough bracelet
The hinge detail on this pearl and white gold piece is so unique.
Tasaki Collection by Thakoon bracelet
A platform shoe
If you're going to go seventies, the shoes are the best part!
Pierre Hardy shoe
Some metal frames
These are great with the feminine looks here, but they would also class up a T-shirt.
