’70s Style Revival: Better the Second Time Around
Sometimes the latest trend isn’t as new as you think. And, this season, the 2015 runways were craving an enormous ’70s style comeback. Designers channeled style icons Joni Mitchell, Barbara Streisand, and Stevie Nicks with a modern twist. That’s right; billowing bell bottoms, festive fringe, and bold accessories are all back, straight out of the ’70s archives. Click through these 13 chic ways to throw back to the ’70s in style.
A playful, printed jumpsuit like this one on Danielle of We Wore What takes a page straight out of the '70s style book. We suggest accessorizing this style with a stacked heel or wedge.
Shaggy Fur Vests
For modern boho babes, we recommend a shaggy fur vest like this one on Julia of Gal Meets Glam. This textured layer pairs perfectly with both suede and denim, and for the fall and winter seasons, top it all off with a wool fedora.
Go bold with accessories, like a groovy pair of circle sunglasses. This pair looks super-stylish on blogger Aimee Song.
The flatform shoe gained popularity in the disco era of the ’70s. These days, the flatform is even trendier, walking the runways of almost every designer at Fashion Week. Mimic style blogger Annabelle of ViviaLuxury to elevate yourself and your style.
Flared jeans are one of the most flattering denim trends available. Flares hug your booty and thighs but billow out from knee to hem, making you look taller than ever. Check out how tall Cheryl of Walk In Wonderland looks! Balance out your flares with a flowy top or a chunky sweater.
Julie of Sincerely, Jules proves that flirty and flowy mini dresses are always chic, especially when paired with tall boots or booties.
White Bohemian Dresses
Inspired by Bianca Jagger circa 1977, white bohemian dresses are becoming increasingly trendy in 2015. This outfit on Jessica of Tuula Vintage is gorgeous for vacation, music festivals, or date nights.
Sazan shows that crochet isn’t just for your grandma anymore. Modern crochet looks include bags, shirts, bralettes, skirts, and shorts. The options are endless!
Thanks to the ’70s renaissance, fringe is back in full force. Whether on jackets, skirts, handbags, or shoes, fringe works in so many ways anyone can pull it off. We love how Arielle of Something Navy mixes textures with a killer fringed suede jacket and a fur bag.
This season, think Farrah Fawcett. Big ’70s curls and trendy peasant blouses are two huge street-style trends. Laura of Ascot + Hart demonstrates both trends perfectly. For a full ’70s look, pair your peasant blouse with flared jeans.
The tie-neck blouse is another must-try ’70s trend. This one from C-Heads gives off a girly, vintage vibe for work or play. It’s also great for layering in cooler weather.
Mini Shift Dress
Pretty patterned shift dresses like this one on Ella of La Petite Anglaise are all the rage this season. Plus, they’re so versatile! Trade your work heels for gladiator sandals, and you’re ready for whatever your day might bring.
Lace-up sandals are stylish, down-to-earth accessories for the hippest modern-day hippie. We love this sandal style with dresses, shorts, or skirts as Zina of Fashion Vibe shows us here.
