Ali McGraw Love Story Movie Style

Ali McGraw's Love Story Inspires Our '70s-Chic Fall Shopping List

We can't think of a better depiction of on-campus style than 1970's Love Story. Shot mostly during the Fall and Winter months against the urbane backdrop of Boston's Ivy League, Love Story follows the tragic romance of law student Oliver Barrett IV (played by Ryan O'Neal) and music major Jennifer Cavilleri (in spectacular performance given by none other than Ali McGraw). Not only did the film touch the hearts of audiences everywhere, but it also catapulted Ali McGraw to instant '70s style-icon status — her real-life bohemian aesthetic, thick brows, and stick-straight brown hair inspired hippie girls across the country.

Poverty-stricken but utterly brilliant, Jenny's wardrobe stole every scene — even more than her unfortunate backstory. She made New England prep look ridiculously easy in her wool peacoats, chunky knit sweaters, and textured skirts. Best of all, her look is perfect for Fall and back-to-school in particular, and we're showing you how to channel Jenny's East Coast-scholar look with preppy staples like tweed miniskirts, corduroy jeans, and a well-cut camel coat.
