STYLE GURU STYLE: That '70s Show

Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong decade, and I know I’m not the only one. Who doesn’t love to hear stories from the past and wish they were there to experience it?One decade that interests me is the ’70s. This decade began with a continuation of the mini skirts, bell-bottoms and eventually became an iconic decade for fashion. Some of the top fashion models of the ’70s were Lauren Hutton, Margaux Hemingway, Beverly Johnson, Janice Dickinson, Jerry Hall and Iman.

I absolutely loved the Prada spring 2015 ready-to-wear runway, which featured many ’70s inspired elements. This show included long hemlines, coat-dresses, high socks, platform shoes and some dark colors. The high socks and platform shoe combination is something I have wanted to try for some time now, so I chose to put together a ’70s-inspired look.

During the ’70s, mini skirts were considered part of the “glamour wear” at the time, as well as sweaters, chunky platform shoes and gold jewelry. My outfit incorporates a little of this trend by mixing a turtleneck sweater, button-down mini denim skirt, fringed gold necklace and platform ankle boots. I drew inspiration from the Prada runway show by adding knee-high socks with my platform boots. My shoes are vintage Frye Villager Ankle Boots I found at a consignment shop by accident, but they are one of my favorite boots I own! My sweater and necklace are from J.Crew, my skirt is one I had from years ago from Billabong and my bag is a Louis Vuitton.
