What do Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Topher Grace and Spring 2011 have in common? (Hint: it has nothing to do with friends with benefits, insane anorexic ballet dancers, or bad 80’s style rom-com remakes – seriously Topher stick to the decade that did you well).
No, what these three now A-List stars have in common is that they can all credit the 70’s with jump starting their careers.
The way I look at it, if this fabulous threesome parleyed the 70’s into successful careers, I see no reason why I couldn’t use the decade as inspiration for my Spring wardrobe!
This Spring is all about taking a modern approach to 1970s fashion. From the disco-glam, to the bohemian-chic, to the Yves Saint Laurent sharp tailoring, the Spring 2011 runways had it all! These three ’70s styles come with a plethora of trendy outfits, all of which spell groovy!
Runways showed long hemlines, low necklines, metallics, wide legged pants, high-waisted pants, platform heels, maxi skirts, bow blouses, hot pants, jumpsuits, bold patterns, vibrant colors, wrap dresses, over the knee boots, faux fur, fringe, big sunglasses, floppy hats, pleats, peasant blouses, drapey long dresses, just to name a few.
Check below for the perfect items to add to your spring wardrobe to give it that 70’s touch and make it truly far out!! Mix and match these 70’s style items and contemporary style for an awesome balanced modern and old school look, or if you truly have disco fever wear the all!
WIDE LEG DENIM: Whenever I think 1970’s style I automatically think BELL BOTTOMS! These flared jeans are so cute, versatile, and most importantly, not that pricey!
Gap Wide Leg Trouser Jeans, $69.50
WRAP DRESS: In the early 1970’s Diane Von Furstenberg introduced a lightweight knitted jersey dress that has become an iconic fashion piece. The wrap dress has greatly influenced women’s fashion and is a must have both now and way back when in the 1970’s.
PLEATED DRESS: Like DVF, Halston was another popular designer of the 1970’s. His pleated dresses were all about the 1970’s disco glam! Even today this Halston metallic pleated dress just screams DISCOOO!!
MAXI DRESS: A long maxi dress is an essential item to create a ’70s -inspired, bohemian-chic look!
