Get Inspired: Mary Tyler Moore
It may have aired over 40 years ago, but there's no denying that 1970s sitcom Mary Tyler Moore gave career girls a voice.
With her no-nonsense attitude, megawatt smile, and enviable wardrobe, television producer Mary Richards proved that you could be 30, single and yes, fabulous, long before Murphy Brown or Carrie Bradshaw were even blips on the pop culture radar. Luckily for us, Mary's polished separates and accessories work just as well today as they did in 1970s Minneapolis. We've rounded up the best Mary Tyler Moore-inspired styles—all 2012-ready, of course.
Like Mary herself, a floaty bow blouse is both professional and feminine.
Like a '70s-style track pant—but way more polished.
Mary might have worn it as half of a pantsuit, but we'd pair this blazer with crisp shorts or skinny jeans.
The soft pleats of this blouse would look so perfect under a sharp, wide-lapeled jacket.
Sporty color-blocking was Mary's go-to weekend look.
For those days when you need to march into Mr. Grant's office and command his attention.
So glamorous with a bouncy, '70s-style blowout.
The perfect office shoe, then and now.
A structured lady bag moves seamlessly from a day at the newsroom to a night out with Rhoda.
High-waisted, wide-legged flares make your legs look about a mile long.
Mary never left the house with a single hair out of place.
