Can we just talk about Penny Lane, the best dressed lady in cinematic history?

I finally got round to watching Almost Famous last summer and it was everything that I hoped it would be...but I'm not here to talk about that, I'm here to talk about the female lead, Penny Lane and how she basically became my biggest style crush ever!

Forget Cher Horowitz and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, this girl is, hands down, the best dressed movie character ever.

I have always had a thing for 70's fashion but I found that a lot of it was too whimsical and girly when done on the catwalk or on the high street - I needed a bit more edge to it and I feel that they nailed that perfectly in Almost Famous.

I love how she always looks so effortlessly cool but has that touch of glam with the faux fur and the tinted sunglasses. Oh and that coat, that shearling coat...WHERE DO I FIND ONE??

To my delight, the high street have definitely embraced Penny's look in their collections in the past 12 months or so, especially people like Topshop, Boohoo and Nasty Gal. They've finally realised that 70's boho doesn't just have to be floaty tops and flower crowns.

Below I have picked out a few high street finds that perfectly encompasses the Penny Lane look!
