Welcome back to another fabulous week! Today, we’re breaking down one of my absolute favorite fall trends- the 70s!
Raise your hand if you’re like me and you can’t believe it’s already October?! Like seriously shocked here. Time is flying by, and we will blink an eye and it will be Christmas! So let’s enjoy this fall season (and trends) before we wake up and it’s gone.
JD, Baby Sawyer, and I went out to my sister’s farmhouse this weekend to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday, filled with sweets and a good ole fashioned family game night. Her place is so pretty, so I decided to visit the horses and get some fun photos in that gorgeous golden light.
But back to the 70s! There are some key ways to really pull this look off.
The 70s were all about mixing textures. Fabrics like suede, corduroy, and velvet were huge, making this red suede maxi skirt is the perfect base choice. (It’s also red, which ticks a whole other trend box.) So tip #1 is to choose a fun texture to play with and build from there. You could go with a suede skirt like this one or some corduroy pants or a shearling gilet!
2. Flared/Wide Leg Pants, Baby!
You know you can’t do 70s without flares or wide leg jeans/pants. It’s pretty much a no brainer! But a fun new twist to the classic flare is the kick flare. These jeans are shorter, ankle length jeans that have a tiny microflare of fun at the bottom with a subtle nod to that 70s trend. Or you could just go all out with some legit bell bottoms! Your call.
3. Pants Suits
Matching pants suits were pretty huge in the 70s, and they’ve found their way to 2017! Extra points if you can nail one of the above points at the same time. Velvet pants suit anyone?
I will now openly admit to the world my love for peasant tops and all things bohemian. I coulda/shoulda/woulda been a hippie had I been alive in the 70s. Flower power all the way! I lumped these two trends together because generally you will find the 70s floral trend partnered with bohemian piece of clothing. I 100% do not have a problem with this!
Now you are perfectly ready to go out there and make the 70s trend work for you!
