Sensational New Sweater Looks 1

Shelley in a spread for Harper's Bazaar, October 1977

Shelley appeared in many spreads throughout Harper's Bazaar's October 1977 issue. In the spread called "Sensational New Sweater Looks", she modeled the very best sweaters to add to any woman's wardrobe that year. They were pieces that went with anything and could even update any existing wardrobe.

She wore the Mohair Tunic, a soft fluffy cowl-neck tunic that came up around the neck and down over the thighs. It could be worn over skinny pants and the newest thing back then - leg warmers. The off-white and grey striped mohair, wool and nylon sweater was by Franck Oliver. The knitted leg warmers were by Krizia.

She also wore the Knicker Set made up of a blouson top, knitted at the waistband and wrists, and a pair of matching knickers, cuffed at the knees so it could be tucked under boots. It was in red, green and camel clan paid; and was for only for the daring and fashion forward woman. The set was by Carol Horn's Habitat. Shelley looked sensational in both looks.
