STYLE GURU STYLE: That's So '70s

Maybe it’s the major “That ‘70s Show” binge watching session I had over Spring Break, but I’m still stuck on the boho ’70 vibes, a major influence for many of the spring 2016 runway shows. Coach’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection is filled with A-line skirts, floral and peasant blouses, bold patchwork and pointed toe booties. Seems great minds think alike because Stuart Vevers, Coach’s new Creative Director, isn’t ready to let go of the A-line skirt either. He translated the trend to the fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection except with an edgier tone.

The A-line skirt may be so last year for some, but since I have a hard time letting go of past trends I love (and work really well for me), the inspiration for my outfit came straight from Coach’s spring 2016 collection. In a much more understated way, I decided to combine the A-line skirt, peasant blouse and pointed toe booties look featured in the collection. I swapped the bold color palette and patterns Vevers used for neutral tones instead.

I went with what I call a modern day classic ’70s look: the jean front button A-line and a peasant blouse. Usually, I’m not a fan of skirts, but I’ve fully embraced the A-line and I probably won’t be giving up on it anytime soon. The booties, which happen to be my favorite pair of shoes I own right now, give off a western vibe which ties together the ’70s look.

If you think it’s too late to get in on the A-line skirt trend, my advice is it’s never too late. It may not be showing up on runways as often as it did a year ago, but it’s going to stay as a staple piece in peoples’ closets for a while.

Get My Look: 1. Jean A-line skirt. 2. Neutral toned peasant blouse. 3. Western booties.
