The reinvention of ’70s fashion has been around for a few seasons now, but this summer, I’ve seen another resurgence. In the spring 2015 ready-to-wear line from Coach, Stuart Vevers brings out iconic trends from the ’70s and ’80s. One of my favorite aspects of this line is the bell bottom jeans. They are sleek and give off the vintage feel when paired with platform sandals or clogs. Vevers mixes edgy-ness with playfulness by styling chic studded satchels and coats with childlike T-shirts, soft florals and pastel colors. The background of the show featured an isolated highway to give the entire collection a ’70s drifter feel.
One of the many reasons I love this collection is because I am an old soul with a love for anything vintage. From my look, I put on my newly hemmed bell bottoms. Since I am a petite individual, I don’t want to miss out on trends I love because the clothing is too long in stores. Hemming your clothes is a great tip for petite individuals. It doesn’t take long to learn and you can hem just about anything!
With my bell bottoms, I am wearing my platform sandals by Reformation. Platforms are great for bell bottoms because it gives the person a little height to elongate the leg and makes the bellbottom really stand out.
I still wanted to give the traveling vibe off, so I wore my favorite, “Rambling Rose” graphic T-shirt from Bandit Brand General Store. I wanted to keep the top simple because in the Coach line, the T-shirts featured were all simple graphic T-shirts.
For accessories, I chose to wear my thrifted ’70s sunglasses and turquoise rings. Turquoise was a very popular stone back then and is making a big comeback in 2016.
Finally, since I am headed back to school in a couple weeks, I have my backpack ready to go with some fun thrifted ’70s-esque pins to add some fun to the outfit.
