STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Saved by the Bell-Bottoms

The ’70s fashion revival is in full force. From peasant tops to suede skirts, ’70s-inspired fashion embodies how this era was about freedom, eclectic colors and disco. This groovy trend has dominated street style worldwide, and summer is the most opportune time to come out of the ’70s on your own.

Everyone’s feeling foxy in their denim bell-bottoms. They’re one of a kind due to the high waist and wide leg. Be confident, and these jeans will make you feel like Farrah Fawcett from the original Charlie’s Angels.

This Fashionista is digging Western boho-chic, which is why she added her black, suede, Western belt to her flared jeans. Moreover, she complemented the bottoms with a graphic T-shirt. In fact, she bought it from a recent Zella Day concert at Toronto’s Mod Club Theatre. So, get a T-shirt with a funky font that embraces the ’70s trend, similar to this Fashionista’s garb.

Hit play on “Give Up The Funk” by Parliament Funkadelic and boogie down in a white pair of timeless Converse All-Stars. Next, accessorize your ’70s attire by layering a few boho necklaces and wearing a couple of rings. For this casual vintage look, keep your color palette simple. For example, this Fashionista decided to go all-Americana with the classic red, white and blue.

Complete your summer wardrobe with threads inspired by the 1970s. Before you know it, you’ll be freaking out to Chic’s “Le Freak,” head banging to Led Zeppelin and dancing the night away to ABBA.
