Everything old is new again. Take for instance retro 70's looks, which have become all the rage. Perhaps the trend's onset started with the viral use of the happy face as an imoji. At one time the iconic happy face became one of the popular symbols of the 70's era. But seriously folks, retro 70's looks are so special because they tend to be worn with certain level of bravado. The 70's sparked a coming-of-age when women were finally "finding" themselves and owning their confidence. Away went the perfectly coifed hairdo's, pill box hats and demure, constructed suits and in came the boho revolution - with a vengeance. The worlds of fashion and beauty suddenly did an about face converting to barely-there makeup, straight, simple hair parted down the middle partnered with dramatic fashions and accessories like oversized sunglasses, huge floppy chapeaus, crocheted knits, fringe and of course the quintessential elephant bell bottom pant.
While today's retro 70's looks are a more subtle throwback of the era gone by, the trend looks amazingly fresh at the moment. The key to wearing this style is to integrate striking touches of the 70's trend into current fashion looks. Hence SJP (Sarah Jessica Parker) herself shows us all how it is done since she was named the new face of Jordache Jeans earlier this year. The key to the modern day success of the look comes by Integrating touches of trend right aspects like flared jeans, fringed accessories, wide brims and lively prints or patterns with more current looks like moto jackets and biker boots. The Retro 70's trend is definitely not an everyday look. I find it is totally great for weekend wear or outings where you want to stand out in the crowd. For fall, pair a simple black turtleneck, fun ankle boots, dark denim jeans, feather accessories along with fringe and suede anything. Now that's a look I want to know better.
