Sally Field's Striped '70s Style... And How To Get It

Sally Field has a pretty rare combination of characteristics: she's ultra-famous, yet very relatable. Standing just over 5 feet, "The Flying Nun" star surprisingly struggled with shyness and insecurity, which was reflected in her 1985 Academy Awards "You like me! You really like me!" speech. While these days Field goes for the monochromatic look on the red carpet, we're loving how she mixed things up in this 1971 poolside photo. The striped top, mustard miniskirt, and thick-heeled sandals compliment her petite figure and bob hairstyle. Do you think Field's outfit would work today?
