Funny how I wore this outfit right when I came back from Paris two months ago and it still feels appropriate to the weather we’re having right now. I’ve been meaning to wear this old skirt with an oversized sweater for a very long time and finally the opportunity presented itself and I love how it turned out, even though I planned some chunkier shoes and a chunkier sweater. It’s all about the silhouette, right?
Right now I’m getting ready for a business conference, where I’ll be introducing a corporate style concept I developed for a company I’m currently working with, so wish me luck!
Let me start by saying I love new trends. Sometimes I get on the bandwagon a bit later than other fashionistas, but don’t you agree trends make dressing so much more exciting?
I do realize that the 70s trend is either love or hate, though! I’m 100% sold, but I’m not gonna go crazy shopping for all the new 70s inspired garments. I have a better idea – why not make it work with what we already have? I have to admit that it would be harder to recreate a similar look without flares, but that is one of the 70s inspired pieces that I really recommend investing in, because they are here to stay. In this look I incorporated four things I love about about the 70s:
1. Flares, obviously
2. Wearing turtlenecks under light jackets or shirts
3. Safari-inspired outerwear (in my case this is a utility jacket I bought a while ago)
4. Cinched waist (preferably wider belts)
But of course, there’s so much more to this trend than what you’re seeing here and I’m extremely inspired to create more outfits, so stay tuned! P.S. Check out my 70s Inspiration pinterest board for more!
This coat has to be the most vibrant piece of clothing I ever owned, well, maybe except all the neon green pieces, but those were clearly a misunderstanding. As you know, 99% of the time I go for muted colors or neutrals, but there’s something about this coat I couldn’t say no to.
Even though I’m feeling far more inclined towards the 90’s, I couldn’t help experimenting a bit with the 70’s inspiration. I guess if my dress had bell sleeves this outfit couldn’t be any more reminiscent of that decade I think this also has a lot to do with the wider fit and length of the boots I’m wearing here. What do you guys think of this outfit?
I’ve always had a thing for flares but unfortunately, a good pair of flared pants is not so easy to find. Imagine how excited I was when I spotted these green bad boys on the website of a Ukrainian brand! Don’t judge me if you see them too often, my head’s exploding with ideas of how to style them
