Post Grad: Unemployed, But Can Somehow Afford Good Outerwear
August 24, 2009
In the latest summer (semi-chick) flick, Post Grad, Alexis Bledel plays a perfectly nice girl who graduates from a nice school, but can’t find a nice job after college. Her character’s wacky family and her sartorial choices in coats are two bright spots in the movie, and the latter is definitely worth copying.
As a recent graduate from Cali, you’d expect Ryden’s style to be fresh and original, mixing current trends with some well-worn classics. And she does it perfectly when it comes to her little leather coat.
It dawned on me over the course of the movie that I really need to get one just like it, and this MICHAEL Michael Kors Leather Quilted Detail Zip Jacket ($267) would be an ideal choice.
On her mission to get back the perfectly nice boy she didn’t know she wanted to be with, a cropped plaid blazer like this one from Theory ($445) with skinny jeans, knee-high flat boots, and a perky scarf couldn’t be more perfect.
I think I’ll get one of those too.
