LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Channel That ’70s Show

Let's Hear it for the Boys

It seems that our generation (Generation Y) loves to reminisce on history classics. Pop culture today is reliving childhood memories of times long gone. From Nickelodeon re-airing classic Nick shows to classic music groups, like The Beach Boys, making Grammy reunions. It's safe to say that history repeats itself, as does the fashion world. Lately there has been an abundance of '90s nostalgia influence from music like Azealia Banks’ 1991 video to Urban Outfitters re-selling classic Nirvana sweatshirts. With all of the '90s flashbacks it was great to see this Fashionisto choose the '70s as his source of inspiration.

This fashionable guy sports a vintage '70s inspired printed short sleeve shirt with a pair of navy blue chino shorts. To continue the '70s vibe, he pairs a super cool vintage suede hat. He keeps his look modern with a pair of beige Clarks and went sockless. He also accessorizes with a gold watch and white Beats by Dre headphones, which serves a double purpose.

Being that this Fashionisto is a singer as well a fashion enthusiast, music is one of his greatest inspirations when it comes to his personal style. When asked where did the '70s inspiration come from this Fashionisto states, “I have been listening to a lot of music from the '70s and watching videos on the Internet and was diggin’ their style.” This proves that you can draw inspiration from the past and make it current.

Hint: Do not be afraid to channel a decade. This Fashionisto took the '70s and made it relevant. You can try other decades of style and try to incorporate that into a more modern look. Try taking a classic staple from the decade and wear it with modern pieces. This is a fun way to relive the past while remaining chic and relevant.
