Before Lollapalooza, Spring Awakening and Coachella, there was the Woodstock Festival. The flower children from the summer of ’69 weren’t trying to make a fashion statement, but their movement influenced festivals throughout time. Over 45 years later we still see common fashion trends that started during this time. As a college student, I am all about having fun with my style and playing around with different trends from different eras. This week I am focusing on the ’70s, giving girls the chance to play around with their style while keeping it laid back and comfortable.
When it comes to your makeup, always keep it very natural because this era and style is all about expressing individuality and freedom – the key is to look fresh.
As for this Fashionista, she gives us a great example of how to have fun with this trend. A flowy white dress is the summer go-to that will always look amazing with a tan, and to give it a modern hippy touch this Fashionista added a crotchet vest in a blush color! When you think of the ’70s, a few things come to mind, one of them being the funky retro sunglasses that were worn by many, including the famous John Lennon. This Fashionista added these sunglasses to her outfit to give it the official Woodstock vibe. No matter how much time passes, the summer of ’69 will always have a huge impact on fashion, giving girls the freedom to be daring with their style.
One Simple Change: If you love the crotchet vest but not the dress, you can always pair the vest with high-wasted shorts and a printed top that is perfect for an early class.
