Five Ways to Achieve The 70's Look

Posted on October 05 2020

1970s fashion is experiencing a major resurgence in the fashion world. Although we think it’s never gone out of style, fashion and beauty trends are increasingly looking to the past for inspiration. These trends include everything from Brigitte Bardot’s curtain bangs to Gloria Steinem’s colored aviator glasses. The 70s gave us some of the most iconic designers who have made their mark on the industry, including Karl Lagerfeld and Diane von Furstenberg. To help you achieve the Studio 54 look with a modern twist, we’ve brought together five of our top tips.

Over The Knee Boots

You can give any outfit a 1970s feel by adding a pair of over the knee boots. This trend was all the rage during the era, with boots in every color of the rainbow. These shoes were most often styled with a mini skirt and denim jeans. To give these shoes a modern twist, you can achieve a laidback look by pairing them with an oversized band t-shirt, a skirt and a cardigan. If you’re after the #BossBabe look, keep your look monochrome and throw on your favorite blazer. 


The Go-To Jumpsuit

In 1975, the jumpsuit entered the mainstream fashion industry and it has been a staple ever since. With its flared trousers, the jumpsuit is synonymous with every icon of the 1970s, from ABBA to Liza Minelli. What began as an activewear piece quickly got a glamorous makeover to become a cocktail party essential. Every award season without fail, the iconic jumpsuit makes an appearance on the red carpet. Today, denim jumpsuits are a celebrity-approved look seen on the likes of Rihanna and the Kardashian-Jenner sisters.

Embrace Boho-Chic

The 1970s gave birth to the bohemian fashion style. As women increasingly joined the workforce, fashion reflected the change in social attitudes and views. The spirit loving ‘hippie’ or ‘boho-chic’ look came to be, and its influence has never left the fashion industry. Floaty maxi skirts, autumnal tones and avant-garde prints are hallmarks of the style. It experienced a massive resurgence in the early 2000s thanks to celebrities like the Olsen twins and Kate Moss. An easy way to incorporate this aesthetic into any look is with a camisole top or a shoulder cut-out blouse. 

The Statement Accessories

If you want to experiment with the 70s fashion without going head over heels, then accessories are the best place to start. Nothing screams the 70s more than a velvet headband, letting you embrace both a modern and a vintage trend all in one. Focus on adding statement accessories to your wardrobe, including gold fashion jewelry and oversized Jane Fonda worthy sunglasses.

Classic Mini Skirt

The mini skirt is a tried and tested favorite for every woman from their teens onwards. Available in every material from faux leather through to tweed and suede, the mini skirt is the perfect way to embody the 1970s aesthetic while still adding a touch of your personality. Keep the rest of your outfit monochrome to allow the skirt to a have a starring moment.
