Inspired by the serial ‘The Americans’, its atmosphere and costumes, I decided to create my next look in such style, which is also very actual today. The actions were took a place in USA and Russia during the 70s. At that time fashion was quite simple and poor in our countries (ask your grandmother and mums). But the way how the main character Nadezhda, who lived in USA, was wearing – is just a tone of inspiration for today! Man’s cut suits, highwaisted pants, flared jeans, blouses and tops with massive shoulders, big bottoms and belts – all these stuff is so trendy now.
To add some post soviet union accent, I wore white earflap hat (yes, exactly this one is the most popular souvenir through the tourists, who visit Moscow) with big badge (find similar here and here). Of course I understand that you won’t wear it in everyday life, so that’s why you may buy just a simple fur hat, which is, by the way, so popular this season (and next as well!). Such fluffy fur hats are better paired with your cashmere coat (find here and here).
The shooting location was chosen not by accident – such accommodations used to built in Soviet Union mostly in every big city.
So now tell me please, which item from this outfit you’d like to wear and which one you won’t wear at all?)

Vintage faux fur hat (shop similar here)
