Now that it is officially spring, you can shrug off the bulky layers and sweaters for a more relaxed look.
It seems that this spring is all about rocking 70s fashion!
lamented Peter Dundas, the creative director of Emilio Pucci, filled his spring line with 70s throwbacks like flares, peasant blouses, and a vintage palette of purple, turquoise, and rust. Breezy silhouettes and fun patterned prints are great for hitting up a local flea market or comfortably relaxing with a good book.
Of course if you don’t feel like swapping your sequins for fringe you can always find 70s inspiration in your accessories. Try some knee-high suede boots or lace up sandals. Let down your hair and play up a simple frock with a pair of oversized sunglasses, chic bangles, or an embroidered bag.
Other designers went for more of a disco vibe, choosing funky platform shoes and slinky dresses. Dark colors and skinny scarves also hit the runways in the Tom Ford and Tommy Hilfiger collections showing the edgier side of the 70s.
If you feel like the disco vibe is a bit too extreme for your day to day wear try classic denim worn in a new way. Denim of all shades is making an appearance on the runway this spring. Tommy Hilfiger used a variety of washes in his patchwork flared jeans, while Nicholas Ghesquière chose a deep indigo for his Louis Vuitton jeans.
Whether funky or free the 70s are back and retro is all the rage for spring!
