The 70s were known as a “pivot in change”. As a turning point in history, the decade was full of economic revolutions. With the increasing of political awareness and economic liberty for women, the 70s were unintentional trend setters. Ever since the beginning of last year, the 70s trends have been in full swing and don’t plan to stop anytime soon! From bell-shaped silhouettes to rich fabrics, the decade represents a very vocal time in history. So each night before you go to bed, count your blessings for 70s fashion.
The most iconic trend of the decade is by far the bell-bottom jeans. The bigger the flare, the better. This season, PIVOT (as Ross Geller would say) towards the flares! I got these Citizens of Humanity jeans for Christmas and they are one of the comfiest pairs I own. Since they are high-waisted and flared, they elongate the body impeccably. If you are looking for the best pair of high-waisted, flares, I suggest you invest in a pair from them. It’s something that everybody needs…
Before the weather starts to warm up too much, bright colored sweaters are the easiest way to style denim pants. The contrasting, geometric pattern in this J.Crew sweater screams 70s, which will go perfectly with some voluminous curls. To make things interesting, I styled with the 60s and 90s in mind. Love can never be exactly like we want it to be. This Banana Republic “Artist” clutch gives off a pop art feel, which comes from the 60s. The white and black color blocking serves as a great neutral to the colorful look. To bring in a more modern piece, the look is finished off with a chocker necklace from DanniJo. It matched too perfectly not to include.
With the weather and seasons changing, pivot with it. Transition into flares instead of your go-to skinnies. Add some unexpected styling pieces to your look as a tribute to the ever-changing 70s. This is dedicated to the one I love. Get hip and stay retro.
