1970’s Style is Making a Comeback

Get excited- the 70’s is back! The music was great, the look was even greater. But how does this apply to 2015 you may ask? Think comfy casual that can easily be updated from day to night. I’d say the Chloe PreFall 2015 collection perfectly emulates the era.

Also, let this be your background music while you read.

Bell Bottoms:

1970s: The bigger the better.

NOW:  Keep the impact but instead with a bold print. For day, think pastels or flowery prints, while for night, dare to shimmer with metallic silver or gold pants.

Dresses and Jumpsuits:

1970s:  Halter-tops and one-shouldered gowns galore!

NOW: Cutouts and skin-baring looks may not be as appropriate for the workplace, so throw a sharp blazer on top to update the look to keep it from looking too casual. This year, hemlines will become longer as well.

Tops:

1970s: Bright flowing tops in a kaleidoscope of prints.

NOW: Continuing with the loose-fit trend, shop for butterfly tops, tunics, and blouson shirts. Keep the colors neutral not to scream 1970s.

Shoes:

1970s: Platforms on platforms! The 70’s took footwear to new heights. Think patent leather, prints, and even whimsical elements.

NOW: For evening, stacked heels and also flats will be even more popular than before. Which is a plus considering they’re much more comfy!

Hair:

Then: long, flowy, natural, voluminous afros

Now: No need to update. Gisele-esque waves are always the way to go. The hairstyles are relevant and easy to do!

Go Farrah Go!

Makeup: Dewey shimmer was all the rage. Lots of eyeshadow and also lip color that’s harkens back to Studio 54 (FYI it was a hotspot of 70’s celebs and artists).

Now: I wouldn’t advise to use blush as a highlighter, but instead keep your look interesting by focusing on one element. Instead of a bold lip AND eyeshadow AND cheeks, choose one and stick with it!
