70s Revival Fashion

The ultimate #throwbackthursday is here! 70s fashion is back (again!). This means bell sleeves, suede skirts, psychedelic prints, patchwork, Native American and tribal inspiration and of course platform shoes!

Denim Dares

Long before Justin and Britney made their unforgettable red carpet entrance with their denim on denim ensembles in the 90s, our parents were doing denim on denim in the 70s! Although it seems counterintuitive to be wearing matchy-matchy tops and bottoms, trust us. Denim on denim has never looked so chic. How do you take a trend that could potentially go so wrong and make it fashion forward, you ask? Simple! Keep your accessories easy and polished such as with pointed toe pumps or classic Ray Ban wayfarer framed sunglasses! Double denim is not to be feared- so trade in your typical hoodie for some vintage outerwear!

Not feeling the entirely denim outfit? Break it up with the 70s fashion trend of jeans that are cut right above the ankle. These trousers and dungarees are energizing in this era where skinny jeans seem to have taken over every outfit! Following the simple do’s and don’ts of wide-leg cropped pants has never been easier with these straight forward guidelines. Top off your cropped leg pants with a fitted sweater for a sexy fall ensemble. As for footwear, opt for ankle boots. Especially when the ankle boots fit snuggly around your ankles, it creates a very flattering silhouette! Going in the same direction, knee length boots are also a good option if the boot is fitted to your leg.

Tribal Triumphs

A big time influence in the 70s was Native American culture. This came out of a time when love and peace was in the air and Americans felt a connection with the native people of their country. Bring the love back by adding some tribal influenced style into your outfit! Do this by adding texture with none other than suede and fringe. Fringe fashion was hot in the 70s but it’s even hotter now! You can get your fringe fix with almost anything nowadays. Fringed booties, fashionable women’s skirts, suede outerwear- everything has been fringed! Back then, celebrities like Cher and Pam Grier integrated tribal inspired pieces into their wardrobes by wearing chunky earthy jewelry and even bold headpieces.  In 2015, boho tribal chic has taken over even the runways! Fabrics like suede and fur are swarming the fashion scene as well as beadwork and fringe.

Color Me 70s

Lastly, if you want to make your outfit 70s-esque without channeling too much costume, you can easily do this by altering your palette. Make a bold statement by putting earthy colors into the mix such as olive, camel, tan, mustard, and rust! (Insert heart eye emojis here!) For a modern meets classic look, try using these tones with a modern silhouette. For instance, opt for an asymmetrical cut skirt in olive and pair it with a flowy lace up top. This screams flower child in 2015 all over it! However you decide to take on the 70s, take the trend by the horns and don’t forget to boogie down!
