Thursdays are for throwbacks, and today we’re going all the way back to the 70’s! Trends from the past always seem to come back in style and look better each time around. You can spot flare jeans, platforms shoes, fringe bags and suede skirts in stores, and boy have they never looked so bangin!
I thought I’d give the boho look a try and instantly felt totally grooovy baby ✌️

With the exaggerated flares and oversize tops, wearing the 70’s inspired trend can get overwhelming and be a bummer, but there are some tricks to wearing the 70’s trend in the modern age.
When it comes to fringe, it works on everything, whether it’s on your purse or boots or even your sleeves. The trick with fringe is to limit it to just one piece out of your whole outfit. With suede, because it’s the “It” material from this era, you should try experimenting with it in unusual shades like baby blue or burgundy. Finally when your pants flare, keep your top more structured or tucked in to balance out the overall shape.
That’s exactly what I did here with my 70’s inspired look. I paired my dark denim flares with a floral high neck top. My overall outfit is balanced because my top, which has a fitted neckline and cuff sleeves, is tucked in to add a little more shape. For my hair, I went with a middle part because that was totally rad back in the day. And finally, I added platform heels to give me some extra height for these extra long jeans.
The 70’s trend was so tubular man! You gotta try it out, but all jokes aside, maybe let’s keep the 70’s lingo where it belongs, back in the past. Psyche!!
Catch ya on the flip side 🙂
