I recently became very inspired by a certain trend that seemed to pop up on almost every catwalk for spring 2015: ’70s-inspired apparel. As someone who already has a bohemian style, I fell in love with the free spirited vibe that was given off in Etro’s runway show. Most of the looks feature baggy, less form fitting clothing with beautiful intricate prints. Fringe is placed perfectly in almost every outfit, whether it be on the shoes, handbags or the garments themselves. These looks may remind you of what someone may wear to Coachella, or could simply even help to give you an idea of how life was 45 years ago. This collection makes me envious of those who were around back then to see the inspiration with their own eyes.
To translate this runway look into my own style, I started with the perfect pair of pants. These (extremely comfortable) high-waisted bell bottoms from Brandy Melville literally scream ’70s! They are loose fitting and care free. The paisley print is the perfect touch, and although darker than the shade used in Etro’s show, blue was a very big color in the runway shows for spring 2015. My white top is more form fitting than anything the models are wearing, but I kept it simple by wearing just a basic white crop top in order to make the pants stand out. This black fringe bag was perfect, as it very closely resembles most of the fringe bags used in the show. The models all wore flats, so I kept my shoes simple with a black pair of sandals. Lastly, to complete the look, I added these beautiful tribal print bracelets, also known as Cloisonné, which were passed down to me from my grandmother. I think my street style look is a great modern take on both Etro’s collection and the ’70s look as a whole.
