Currently Swooning Over: The 1970's

1970s

Hello! I'm currently swooning over the 1970s- this spring, I'm looking towards 70s culture and fashion for inspiration. Woodstock, musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, the film Love Story, hippie VW vans are all inspiring my recent aesthetic. There are a few elements of 1970s fashion that I can't get enough of: bell bottoms, fringe, bright embroidery, peasant dresses, stone jewelry, clogs and round sunglasses.

70s inspired silhouettes strutted down the runway during the spring/summer 2015 runway shows and are definitely trending this spring- especially in the form of free-flowing, bellbottom pants. I love bellbottoms in unique bohemian prints like the ones featured above. Additionally, fringe is making quite the statement this season. I love fringe on tops, bags and skirts in particular. Extra points for fringe pieces in neutral, 70s inspired colors such as tan and black.

I'm also swooning over bright embroidery and peasant dresses this spring. Bright embroidery on breezy tops and tunics reminiscent of the 70s are popping up all over the place this spring; I love the playful energy that they emit. And I don't think that I could be any happier with the revival of peasant dresses. The loose breezy style and hippie influence of these dresses make them absolutely irresistible. Peasant dresses are even better in bohemian prints such as paisley.

70s inspired accessories such as stone jewelry, clogs and round sunglasses are also making quite a splash this season. I've recently added a few new pieces of stone jewelry to my wardrobe and can't wait to show them off all spring. Now, I only need add a few more pairs of flatforms and clogs to my wardrobe.
