The resurgence of a 1970s influence has been seen on the runways of today’s top designers. The inspiration has been floating around for a few seasons now but it’s now in full force. And why not? The fashion of the 1970s gives us all a break from the dynamic strength of the 1980s, a much needed glamour dosage within 1990s minimalism, and is a chic and classic look all around.
Get The Look
The 70s look is in season for Fall and for Spring, so it makes for great transitional fashion. For Fall, try wearing luxe coats in camel and beige colors, menswear as womenswear, and flared trousers. The bell bottom is back on the scene for Fashion, after the skinny jean so monotonously replaced it. Try out this look for a vintage but completely fresh way to wear pants. When Spring rolls around, bright colors, bold prints, and flowers! flowers! flowers! are your ticket to looking fashion forward. Mix prints and play with proportions.
Look to Marc Jacobs SS11, Pucci SS11, and Chloe FW10 for 1970s inspiration. Also search for amazing streetstyle photography, because fashion lovers are embracing this look full on. Models, like Abbey Lee Kershaw, are sporting the new cool girl look inspired by the 70s. Check out Style.com for more runway inspiration.
Chictopians in the 70s
StylePantry, TheVintageSociety, and JusticePirate show Chictopia that this trend is completely wearable and so, so chic. All three looks have a great number of +Chic Votes and Favorites, showing that the 1970s look is one that everyone loves!
Grab your hats, supersize your accessories, and don’t forget the platforms because the 1970s are back and are a force to be reckoned with. Everybody Is Ugly, Everybody Is 70s. :)
