’70s Outfit Details That Are Totally 2017


If the ubiquity of patchwork denim and billowy sleeves is any indication, the '70s trend is still going strong straight into Fall. But unlike the free-flowing, retro flair we love incorporating into our Summer looks, the colder months call for more structure and a modern touch. By weaving in key details to your OOTDs in the form of a subtly printed handbag or statement sleeve, you can achieve a blast from the past while remaining seasonal. Keep reading for more Fall '17 ways to add a '70s twist.

Suede Outerwear

Jacket; AllSaints. Pants; ZARA. Shoes; LK Bennett. Earrings; Elizabeth and James.

A suede moto jacket is a surefire way to evoke the '70s. Instead of the usual tan or brown, opt for a beautiful blush hue for an on-trend update. The pale pink provides a nice contrast to moody floral prints.

Chevron Stripes

Shirt; Calvin Klein. Pants; Barbara Bui. Shoes; Rachel Zoe. Bag; Salvatore Ferragamo. Necklace; Jennifer Fisher.

The psychedelic zigzag pattern might come across as traditionally retro, but splashed across a boxy leather handbag keeps it current. The sleek gold hardware and neutral palette also help. Complement the print with minimal shapes and clean lines for a sophisticated effect.

Bell Sleeves

Vest; Citizens of Humanity. Shirt; Monique Lhuillier. Jeans; Topshop. Shoes; SENSO. Bag; Pierre Hardy. Sunglasses; Smoke x Mirrors.

The trick to bringing airy, voluminous sleeves into Fall? Swap lightweight chiffon for crisp poplin. The thicker fabric will lend structure to the silhouette for a more tailored look. Then, throw on a trench vest, straight-leg jeans, and a pair of sock boots for an effortless transitional ensemble.

Round-frame Sunglasses

Left: Sweatshirt; Sonia by Sonia Rykiel. Skirt; Delfi Collective. Bag; Clare V. Sunglasses; Jplus. Right: Jacket; Coach. Sunglasses; Jplus.

Top off your look with a pair of oversize round-frame sunnies for instant vintage vibes. Details like reflective lenses, sleek metal hardware, and architectural temples help keep the accessory more timeless than throwback.
