Before Mila Kunis made her big comeback into film, I was told all the time that I looked “just like Jackie from That ’70s Show.” While my family and best friends agree they can’t really see a resemblance with this doppelgänger, it turns out that I should do a little Jackie emulation—at least this style season! ’70s trends are all over the runways. Fringe, fur, flares, knits, vests, jumpers and chunky boots are all groovy again. After browsing essentially every major runway show with ’70s inspiration, I settled on Chloé’s collection as my prize winner. The collection’s highlights include a variety of textures, ranging from fur to crocheted, as well as flared pants. One subtly flared denim number with a hint of texture seemed like practical and classic inspiration. Leg lengthening and funky? Sign me up.
I decided to pull in a few throwback trends from the runway into my look. I invested in a pair of flared blue pants for an interview last year, and I’m so glad I did! They made the perfect Chloé-inspired base for this look. As my boyfriend aptly put it, “I may not know much about ’70s fashion, but those pants sure are funky.” That’s a win in my book. I also happened to have a faux fur vest on hand from Target that helped balance the preppy ’70s feel with its more bohemian and earthy side.
For the outfit’s base top, I initially thought about copying Chloé and donning a denim jacket. However, Chloé’s collection is technically in preparation for next fall, and things just didn’t feel cool enough for spring. My chambray button-down was in the wash, but inspiration came when I stumbled upon a crocheted sweater with bell sleeves. Wispy, bohemian and oh-so-flower child—perfect!
A pair of chunky leather booties really helped top off the look. Barely noticeably under the flared pants, their occasional appearance really adds some detail to the outfit! I also added some subtle gold rings for good measure.
