The 70’s were, with no doubt, an eclectic decade. Everything from the music, to the arts and the fashion were funky and groovy. Despite the fact that some of the fashion choices made in that decade are a bit too extreme, 70’s fashion is back in style, 40 years later. A few months back, I made a whole lookbook of 70’s inspired outfits with a modern twist, if you fancy a look. Today I’m gonna keep it to just one look!
Bell bottom pants, peasant shirts and other 70’s trend are still going strong this summer. One of my favorite trends from that era, is fringe! I love fringe! When I saw these fringed jeans, I was instantly taken back in time . They’re high wasted, which made them even more 70’s appropriate, and even more alluring on my short figure.
I love how these fringe jeans create an effortless movement with each step I take. The eyes are immediately drawn to the movement of the feet, so make sure the shoes can stand up to the challenge!
Even though paisley started to become mainstream popular by the end of the 60’s, it definitely stayed à la mode through the 70’s too. I picked up this shirt last week on sale from Banana Republic. What drew me to it was the neckline design. It’s quite unusual and almost reminds me of a man’s neck tie, in a more feminine way, of course. The fabric is extremely soft and light, perfect for summer. It almost looks like a wrapped silk scarf around your body.
To complement the fringe jeans I wanted to add more movement to the top of the outfit. I’m usually more drawn to delicate jewelry, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like statement pieces occasionally. These earring are big, bold, sparkly, have lots of tassels and are absolutely gorgeous! The fact that they’re matching colors with my top and heels is the cherry on top! They could be easily styled with a white T shirt or even a LBD!
I’m a big fan of retro fashion reinvented and reimagined in a new modern way. The 70’s is definitely one the my most loved decades, and seeing that its fashion is back in style makes me genuinely groovy!
What’s your favorite fashion era? Are you a fan of the 70’s fringe?
