Ladies and gentlemen…the 70’s are back!! In order to keep your look from getting too costume-y, I recommend picking a classic 70’s trend or two and adding some modern detail to your look. I am not one to totally jump on a bandwagon as soon as a trend hits the runway or even the streets- I like to test it out in the comfort of the grocery store or school pickup first before I fully embrace. I paired super flares (so 70’s it hurts) with this fringy pendant necklace from my grandmother’s costume jewelry collection for a whole lotta 70’s love.
These jeans are from the Old Navy clearance rack…and before you get too excited, they are from Old Navy circa 2002. Yes, I held on to them hoping they would come back in style and surprise, surprise they did!! I keep hearing of capsule wardrobes where people get rid of everything in their closet they don’t wear. My secret? I keep it all. A capsule wardrobe, while totally amazing for most people and completely makes sense, totally freaks me out. I love pulling things in from different times in my life and incorporating them into my current looks.
These are super flares, and the biggest tip I can give when wearing pants of this style are- let them almost drag on the ground. Nothing looks more awkward than seeing a flare with 6″ of space between the hem and the ground. If you can’t adjust the hem on your pants, adjust the height of your heel.
Shirt– Ella Louvi boutique in The Glen, under $60; a HUGE staple in any closet, comes in a variety of colors and is incredibly versatile
Bralette– Coobi from Ella Louvi Boutique; I own this bra in a few colors, and it is the perfect solution to that “my tank top is too long and bunching weirdly around my waist under my blouse” issue
Jeans– Old Navy, we’ve discussed.
Shoes– Jessica Simpson from the Macy’s super duper crazy clearance rack. (Full disclosure- these aren’t the most comfortable, so I wore them just for the photo and changed into black ankle booties. But they match SOOO well!)
Necklace– vintage from my late grandmother; she had style!
Earrings– garnet studs; the first jewelry gift my husband gave to me
How do you rock that 70’s look? Let me know, I am feeling the vibe this fall!
