70’s | VIBE

August 8, 2016

Clothes inspire me. Different eras inspire me. When I saw this vibrant, orange top from the Australian label, Bless’ed Are The Meek, I was drawn to the bell sleeves. Immediately I felt the urge to play up the sleeves and go for a seventies look. This top is actually part of a matched set paired with a midi, knit, tube skirt, but I ditched the skirt because I just love the color orange styled with its contrasting color, blue (reminds me of a sunset against the azure sky).

The long, bell sleeves of this top are balanced out by a more cropped hemline. I wanted to avoid showing too much of my mid section, so I wore my high waist, denim shorts from Zara (sold out but I linked similar favorites below). To complement the seventies vibe, I added this amazing, stitched choker from Dirrty Glam, platform, lace-up heels , and round sunglasses from Zero UV.

If you could dress for any era, which would you pick? The roaring 30’s, rock-n-roll 60’s, or the grunge 90’s?

You look amazing!!! This look is perfection. I’m happy being in our current era because we can really dress like we’re in any era! Style today is such a huge mix of the 70s,80s,90s, etc.

Thanks babe you are too sweet! The 70’s was such a fun era for fashion. These heels are super affordable and you should definitely get them to wear with flares, jumpsuits, and shorts. They definitely give me the added height without making my feet hurt. Have a fab week too!

Thank you Julia! I agree that we’ve come to a point in fashion where everything is on repeat from the past, but just made better or slightly more modern. I love the 20’s too and the 50’s!
