The Perfect Girlfriend Jean

The Perfect Girlfriend Jean

It’s time to take a trip back to another decade this summer. That’s right, the ’70s are back and better than ever! I have been seeing this trend everywhere lately and I love the effortless individuality in these looks. No matter where you are shopping this season, you can bet you’ll find beautiful prints and flowy tops that are perfect for the summer heat. Bring on the warm weather!

I caught up with this Fashionista in Ann Arbor, Michigan, for a day of exploring and restaurant-hopping. Embroidery is making a comeback this season and I am obsessed with her ’70s-inspired embroidered denim from Free People. To me, embroidery really personalizes the piece you are wearing and overall makes the outfit more interesting to look at. The light wash girlfriend style combined with bronzy florals is perfect for casual wear this summer.

To pull the entire look together, she paired her trendy jeans with a flowy spliced tank and complementary blue metallic platform oxfords. Now, let’s talk about these shoes—they are so fun and truly are a statement piece. The added platform to the oxford makes these timeless shoes so unique and trendy. I wasn’t able to find the exact matches in this look but I have linked similar products that would still pair nicely with these amazing jeans.

The accessories in this look are minimal with dainty hoop earrings. Hoops are another big trend this season and I love the way she paired them with her outfit. She opted for a natural face of makeup to finish off her look seamlessly.

Now that it’s officially summer, it is the perfect time to raid your mom’s closet, find inspiration at local thrift stores, and experiment with your personal style. Try out the funky patterns that you normally wouldn’t go for, embroidered jeans, and make the ’70s look your own.
