As a fashion student, I am well aware that fashion typically runs in a cycle. The Fashion Cycle. Eventually, everything comes back into style. Based on the fashion shows that appeared in the Fall, most fashion trends in 2015 will be based on looks from the 70s!!! This excites me! After learning a lot about fashion history, I’d have to say that the 1970s is my favorite decade. When I’m working at Topshop, I see so many pieces that are 70s-inspired and I’m like #IGOTTAHAVETHIS. I also have parents coming in saying, “Holy smokes! This is what I wore at your age!” Basically, I am fully prepared to embrace this trend. There’s flared pants or “bell bottoms”, “psychedelic” prints, wide floral prints, fringe, and an interesting selection of vibrant colors. This year I don’t think I’ll be able to resist/avoid trying some color. I am also completely obsessed with the prints. I now gravitate towards them, which isn’t normally like me! I’m gradually beginning to add some life/character into my wardrobe (Hallelujah!). Here are some photos that I’ve accumulated as parts of my personal trendboard for this 70s trend. Some of you may not be a fan. It’s definitely a change from the simplistic and minimalistic pieces that we’ve seen during the past year or so – which now I find that so basic! (C’mon! Spice up your life!) Even if you’re not a fan of the 70s, it’s only the beginning of the year. Who knows what other trends we’ll start to see!
Hope you enjoyed these pictures (all were taken from Tumblr)!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
