Fashion is constantly reinventing itself; with each new season, we can spot trends from decades past. This summer we’ve witnessed a revival of the seventies: A time of carefree style, when bohemian fashions reigned supreme and “hippie” became a household term. Now, designers are bringing back the trends that made the counterculture so fashionable. With these five haute looks, you can embrace the “far out” era.
1) Flared Jeans
Whether curvy or slim, flare jeans will flatter your unique figure. These Play Girl Jeans by James Jeans offer a complimenting silhouette, featuring a pastel blue wash with five-pocket styling, whisker detail at front and mild distressing.
For a darker denim look, try the Marrakesh Kick Flare Jeans by MiH, which features welt hip front pockets and patch back pockets, all finished in Ligurian blue. Pair it with a wooden- heeled wedge to further elongate your legs.
It’s not just seventies clothing that’s returning, but footwear as well! Many of our favorite shoe designers are choosing to add clogs in their collections. Fortunately for us, the clog is a versatile style able to be worn with a variety of outfits. These Widdianne Clogs by Tory Burch feature woven leather patterning, wooden platforms, screw-head studs at the sidewall and buckle closure. The perfect summertime shoe.
The High Heel Platform Clog by Belle by Sigerson Morrison puts a modern spin on the classic clog. These blond leather mules boast a light wooden platform heel, sling-back strap with buckle closure and subtle distressing.
Fringe is essential to bohemian style. From skirts to accessories, this fun embellishment is making a comeback. Opening Ceremony’s Fringe Long Skirt will unleash your inner hippie. The silk maxi wrap skirt features pleating at the front and back and knotted fringe at the hem with an attached self-belt tie.
Use this vintage-inspired case to protect your 21st-century gadget. The Suede Fringe iPad Case by Jagger Edge features layers of fringe, magnetic tab closure and elastic corner tabs with suede interior that will keep your coveted possession secure.
Jumpsuits and rompers are more popular than ever. With the weather getting warmer, we have no excuse not to throw one on. This flirty and feminine Dotty Print Jumpsuit by The Addison Story is the perfect outfit to rock on a sunny summer’s day. Featuring a subtle abstract print; asymmetrical ruffled tiers at bust; gathered elastic banding at waist; and a detachable, buckled leather belt.
Look your best in this Tiered Chiffon Romper by Halston Heritage. The scoop-neck, silk-chiffon romper features a ruffled overlay at the bust and thin self-belt tie at the waist. Choose from either enticing neon coral or attention-grabbing electric fuchsia.
5) Flowing Gowns
Our favorite trend from the seventies has to be the long, flowing gowns. This Mary Gold Halter Gown by Malene Birger is reminiscent of retro-Hollywood glamour. The colorblock silk-chiffon halter maxi dress features a crew neck and pleating at the bodice and waist with satin banding.
Don this gorgeous Caftan Dress by The Addison Story while on vacation with your significant other or while soaking up rays poolside with your girlfriends. The paisley silk-chiffon maxi dress features a scoop neck, buttoned keyhole at the bust, slip lining dress, three-fourths flutter sleeves, detachable self-belt tie and asymmetrical hem.
