Return of the 70s

Due to an overwhelming load of work, I am unable to complete my “NYC Street Wear” post (it will come soon though!)

Anyways, although it doesn’t feel exactly like summer yet, remember that april showers means may flowers!, one of the biggest trends of the season is inherited style from the ’70s! Dressing like you’re from the past can be hard, but channeling the ’70s look shouldn’t be too difficult.

(That ’70s Show)

70s fashion is characterized as high-waisted denim, blouses, floral, and flowy and long dresses.

High-waisted denim is probably the easiest to find currently. Places such as American Apparel and Urban Outfitters will definitely have them. Unless you want a more vintage, authentic 70s feel, you should check out Screaming Mimi’s (in Soho). Last time I checked, they had colorful high-waisted denim shorts and skirts.

Blouses are another thing that is easy to find. However, finding the right blouse is the difficult part, especially if you’re going for the 70s look, right? Best place to find these type of blouses? Vintage stores, obviously. Beacon’s Closet carries many many blouses of various colors, which can and cannot be a good thing. In my opinion, bolder colors signify more of an 80s feel. If you rather get a bright colored blouse, go for it!!

Florals are particularly simple to find, only because it is really popular at stores in the city. You could literally step into a random boutique in let’s say.. Greenwich Village, and they’ll most definitely carry something floral.

Last but not least, flowy dresses. Most girls enjoy wearing short dresses, usually to parties and dances, but during the 70s, maxi dresses was the “it” dress style. While I was traveling in Spain, one store that carried many maxi dresses was Zara. Luckily, Zara is also in the city! So if you’re looking for a long, silhouette-like dress, Zara is the right store to visit.

In addition to Flower Power, the 70s created a memorable style that has returned and is now reliving. Will you be sporting this trend? Leave a comment below with your opinion or suggestion!
