One of my favorite things about fashion is how cyclical it is. I love seeing trends from past decades resurfacing, but coming back in a modern way. The seventies are back right now, and with festival season approaching it only seems appropriate.
While we don’t need to bring back the rainbow tie-dye or giant peace symbols, it’s easy to add a touch of seventies into your look while still staying modern. Old Navy has tons of fun seventies-inspired pieces and it’s easy to incorporate them into your look without looking dated. Try these tricks:
Choose classic silhouettes. When looking for seventies-inspired pieces, look for classic or modern silhouettes, like a tailored button-down, an a-line skirt, or a shirtdress, so the seventies prints or colors look fresh and modern.
Create balance with modern pieces. If your piece is seventies inspired in both silhouette, print, and/or color, style it with modern pieces, like skinny jeans, a fitted leather jacket, or ankle boots.
In February, I attended a launch party in LA for Old Navy’s seventies-inspired line, and in addition to a killer synchronized roller skating rooftop performance and lots of good seventies music, there was also a floral crown station. They had professionals making them, but I was so inspired by them that I had to try my hand at making a fresh floral crown. It turns out it’s really simple, and not only does it make a great accessory for your seventies-inspired look, it’s also perfect for upcoming festival season!
