Anyone who has an interest in clothing or fashion has probably taken notice of the fact that ’70s-inspired trends are still having a MAJOR moment within the industry. Retro and bohemian looks have been taking over runways and clothing stores for multiple seasons now, and I am loving it.
I seem to find myself incorporating at least one of those ’70s-inspired trends into my every day wardrobe. I took a huge interest in Rebecca Minkoff’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, which featured a variety of fashion-forward ’70s details including suede, fringe, jumpsuits and mini skirts. Another detail I loved was her use of knee-high lace-up sandals.
A wonderful aspect of the majority of these trends is the fact that they seem to be seasonless. Although Rebecca Minkoff’s collection was a spring collection, it is easy to take inspiration from looks such as these and translate certain trends into looks for the winter season.
My look includes a suede mini skirt, which seems to have become a staple in anyone’s wardrobe. I decided to purchase my skirt in an orange color, which I thought added an element of fun compared to the neutral versions of this same skirt. I paired the skirt with a cozy green turtleneck to contrast the orange of the skirt. Combining the knit texture of the sweater with the suede of the skirt gave the look a more appropriate feel for winter. I finished off the look with a pair of tall lace-up boots, which remind me of the sandals featured in Rebecca Minkoff’s runway collection. I seemed to be taking cues from Jackie from That ’70s Show with my mini skirt and turtleneck combination.
Since the ’70s-inspired trends do not seem to be leaving the runway any time soon, I love purchasing versatile, staple pieces which can be used for fantastic bohemian or retro looks in any season.
