Back from break. And while the last few baby pounds still linger, at least one item in my wardrobe appropriately fits: flare jeans. Thank goodness, because the ‘70s are back. This season, if it’s “right on,” it’s right now:
Far out flares:
Welcome back your wide leg and flare jeans. Any wash will do. Light blue is more literal and looks cool with a white peasant top. Dark is more sophisticated and pairs well with a horizontal striped T-shirt. Time to wear your platform heels.
To the max:
The maxi dress is still smokin’ this season. It flatters virtually every figure and has a nice, chill vibe. Try it in a tie-dye print, or go more au courant with a bright, floral print. Espadrilles look especially cool with this.
This is an iconic item of the ‘70s. It’s a great substitute for a day dress and also works for a date night. Black looks more modern, and unless you’re heading to a disco, avoid matching gold cuffs. Gladiator flats or wooden wedges will seal the deal.
Another key ‘70s piece, the blouse is flowy and easy-cheesy cool. Go bohemian with a mini print or opt for a solid, earthy-hued silk. Pair with wide leg trousers and peep-toe pumps.
Transform your look with extras. Oversized shades, a floppy brimmed hat, pendants/bangles, fringed boots, animal prints, wide belts, and slouchy bags, are all sure bets to take you back in time.
