70's Fever

70's Fever


When it first popped up, I had a love/loathe feeling about the seventies trend.  The seventies was a time of twig thin women and fashion reflected that waif image.  As a woman who isn’t a stick, I found this trend hard to pull off.  However, I’m feeling inspired by the pieces I’m seeing online and I wanted to make a post centered on how to translate the trend for a curvier body type.

Suede
I want all the suede things!  Coats, vests, dresses, shoes...they all look so stylish.  This is actually the first part of the trend that really started to win me over.  Although there are so many wonderful options for suede clothing and accessories, if I had to pick one go to suede piece it would be a coat.  There have been a few suede moto jackets that look so effortlessly chic.  I could see this as a universally flattering way to embrace the 70’s trend and have a beautiful piece that you would wear even after the trend has gone.


Fur
Collars and entire coats are made out of fur with colors not normally found in the animal kingdom.  While I’m not really interested in embracing the fur coat trend, I think the collars are an interesting way to accessorize and add a little flair to your outfit.  It also seems to be the more flattering option for adding fur into your wardrobe.  If anyone has found a way to wear a full on fur coat and not look like a fluff ball please let me know in the comments down below.


Denim
I feel like flared jeans had a revival when I was in high school and I remember everyone owning a pair.  I even managed to convince my parents I needed a flaired pair of jeans and it’s actually one of the pieces I don’t regret wearing back from my teen years.  It not only looks great on a long lean physique but I think it also balances out an hourglass shape as well.


The outfit I’m loving

While looking through old images of 70’s fashion and comparing them to the current trend, I can’t help but fall in love with flair jeans, a turtleneck and a blazer.  This combination looks effortless and timeless, which are two things I aspire to achieve with my style.   A military inspired jacket or a moto jacket would also work great with this combination. 

What do you think about the 70’s trend?

    1. I know! It's been so rainy here so far this fall that I don't want to invest in a piece that would get ruined.

  4. I actually enjoy this trend! And this year I will have a celebration (100 days) for 6th graders and the theme will be 70's. So I need to get as much ideas as I can for my outfit :)
