STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Heavenly in the ’70s

Shout out to all Fashionistas, you better grab your best bright prints and wear some flowers in your hair because In case you have not noticed, this summer’s trend is definitely a reflection of San Francisco circa 1970. Let me tell you, I have not one complaint about that! I am obsessing over the haute hippie style and my prayers for the return of the ‘70s has been answered! This look has made for remarkable changes in fashion where even the die-hard skinny jean lover is trading for high waisted, wide-legged pants. I love this ‘70s vibe; it marks the blueprint for the strive for more individuality and artistic declaration began. Eccentric colors, wide-legged trousers, peasant tops, long skirts, and patterns have all been evolving into the modern day version of the style many of our parents experienced. This Fashionista reflects the flattering, flowing, and effortless ensembles that so many adored about this era.

This Fashionista totally justifies my admiration for that ‘70s look. She perfectly paired her loose, buttoned top with a color popping striped maxi skirt. These delightfully bright colors are totally appropriate and welcomed in this summer style. It’s a girly combination you can’t help but adore. Also note she is wearing her skirt at a height that reflects the trend. Not to mention she added the essential chunky jewelry pieces that tied all the colors together. These key items she is wearing can be used in many different ways as well. If your not loving the maxi skirt trend, then rock that flowing top with your skinny jeans or wide-legged trouser. Or if you are the type that wants to take it one step further, mix your maxi skirt with another printed top- a combination of prints together is going to be a significant trend come this fall! Either way you choose, tie a little touch of that American ‘70s to your look is just what every Fashionista needs right now.

To capture the look of this gorgeous Fashionista, there are so many great options out there for you right now. I love this Belle and Bunty daisy maxi skirt from Asos. It has the lighter colors as this Fashionista’s skirt did, and also can be worn at a higher rise. If you’d prefer brighter and without a pattern, definitely head to Topshop for a bright red maxi instead. When it comes to the perfect flowing top- for simplified prints and plainer styles- check out Splendid, they have a plethora of options and fantastic comfort level. However if you really want to rock it, I love Elizabeth and James flowing peasant tops as another altercation to your look, so posh and beautiful. The ‘70s are more alive then ever, now it’s your chance to hop on board the train!
