STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Saturday Night Fever

I recently read an article in the Huffington Post that declared our generation has been ravaged by technology; Not only are people more socially inept, but the percentage of romantic relationships compared to past decades has significantly decreased. Also, someone told me that the world was going to end in 2012, but I guess we don’t need to worry about that right now. Thankfully, like a breathe of fresh air, there seems to be a 1970’s revival in all aspects of culture from music to fashion. I had the pleasure of listening to Gloria Steinhem accept her award at the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year award show and hearing about her accomplishments, like procuring rights for women in the 1970’s, moved me to tears. Similarly, some of my most recently added tracks to itunes have vibed disco sounds as classic Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye singles are set to techno beats. Meanwhile, Karl Lagerfeld recently presented his 2011 resort collection for Chanel to only be described as 70’s bohemian. It has never been a better time to get nostalgic for a time period marked by love and social change.

Imagine my elatedness to see this trend catch on locally in DC. I found this Fashionista before a night of clubbing at the recently revived Josephines. I was completely crazy about the statement her black wide-legged jeans from Rag and Bone made. She tucked in a simple white tank by Kain and layered with a leopard coat she found at a vintage shop in New York City. She kept her accessories simple with wide round sunglasses by Chloe, earrings from a shop in Tel Aviv, and a red Hermes enamel bangle for a pop of color.

Wide-legged jeans are the most flattering style for anyone’s legs and can easily transition from day time to night time. In order to ensure the best fit- make sure you pair them with a tall heel, like this Fashionista did with her black Steve Madden booties.
