The 70's continue to reign supreme for this fall's statement look. I honestly would wear trends from the 70's without the modern update. I can spend hours on Pinterest looking at all the amazing fashion from this era. I especially love jumpsuits. It's a little tricky to get on and off (depending on the structure of the design), but it's so worth the trouble. I have so many different types of jumpsuits that I decided it was time to explore other 70's trends.
My first pick was the DVF wrap romper. One of the famous fashion inventions in the 70's was the wrap dress by Diane Von Furstenberg. When I was younger, I never really liked the wrap dress. It looked conservative and boring to me. I don't know what I was thinking back then! I tried on this DVF wrap romper and fell in love. The material was soft, stretchy, and it fit just right. Not too short and not too long. I don't own any green in my closet, but after wearing this I'm seriously considering it. To complete the look, I wore shades from CELINE.
The second dress I tried on was a dress from TOPSHOP. I felt super girly in this dress. The pink color, ruffled top, and floral pattern screams Laura Ingalls Wilder! Of course she would have never left the house with the length of the dress being above the knees. Did they even know what a mini skirt was back then (sorry, I'm getting a little sidetracked)?
I usually wear v-neck or scoop neck tops, so this fit was definitely new to me. Since I'm not used to wearing this kind of dress, I didn't have the proper shoes to go with the outfit. I chose to wear a simple black strappy heel in the video, but to really match the 70's vibe I should have worn it with platform heels.
The final outfit I picked was from Alice and Olivia. This dress was more the style I was used to. I love the plunging V neckline and shoulder-baring back. The wide pleats add just the right amount of volume to the skirt. The color and pattern of this dress is what made it look 70's to me. I paired it with cat-eyed sunglasses from Tom Ford and even added a clip-in fringe. I was a completely different woman in this dress!
If you want to give these 70's inspired looks a try here are few outfits I picked out that won't break your bank account. I personally like to try on economical alternatives before I decide to splurge. I looked at several well-known brands like H&M, Charlotte Russe, Asos, and this is what I found. F21 "Floral Print High-Neck Dress" for $27.90. NASTYGAL"Glamorous Juku Jacquard Dress" for $44. The only thing I couldn't find was the wrap romper similar to DVF's romper. The closest alternative I found was F21 "Tie-Dye Print Romper" for $17.90.
