’70s style revival is here! Some of the designers who brought this trend back were Tommy Hilfiger’s ’70s-inspired spring/summer 2015 collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. Valentino spring 2015 lace-up gladiator sandals were essential for their ‘70s-inspired runway. Even though these sandals that rocketed to the top of every fashion editor’s wish list, breezy printed dresses should be a must in to accomplish this look.
Taking this look out of the runway to the halls of school, you must follow the following steps: 1. Opt for strappy or simple comfortable sandals. 2. Pick a very lightweight, fresh dress that screams “flower girl.” 3. Incorporate an overload of small print. 4. Use minimal accessories/keep it simple.
Let’s talk color. The ’70s used subtle colors, and this distinguished this era from others, like the ’80s. Opt to buy brown, light brown, dark brown, red-brown or orange-brown, and maybe just a few more earthy tones. For an accent color, combine with sad yellow tones, avocado greens or maybe more brown.
Modern day girls cannot really pull off the ’70s hair look, because let’s admit it, it’s too hard! So what I recommend is just letting it flow, let it down and messy; the messier the better. Just remember to not have it too frizzy because we also don’t want to look like a mess.
If you like to add accessories you can add a cool but simple pair of glasses with a fringe purse to bring all the essential items needed for your day.
Having all the items and tips above you will be in business! You will be taking in modern ’70s.
