Fall 2015 Trend Guide: That 70s Girl


It started innocently enough as rounded-toe "mod boots" and faux fur began to creep back onto the scene the last few years. Last fall, the trend was a bit over-shadowed by the explosion of the over-the-knee boot trend. For fall 2015 however, there is no denying the 1970s trend. From button-front skirts and fringe to off-the-shoulder tops and wide-brim suede hats, it's easy to see an overall look emerging. Pictured: Nasty Gal "Just Romancin'" Off-the-Shoulder Dress


A new addition to the trend this year is the lace-up blouse. It's a really sexy take on the 70s trend. A loose-fitting boho lace-up top is great over shorts or flare jeans, but a fitted lace-up top is perfect to tuck into a button-front mini skirt (another top trend for the 70s revival look). Pair a button-front mini with some structured knee-high boots. Pictured: Nasty Gal Livin' After Midnight Lace-Up Blouse

Perhaps the most popular look from the 70s this year include the wide-leg flare jeans trend. They haven't dethroned skinny jeans just yet, but you will start seeing them more and more, and they will be available at mainstream retailers like Old Navy, Target, and EXPRESS.

My personal favorite part of the 70s trend is fringe, and it's on everything this year. Not just bags and heels, but on dresses and tops as well. Pictured: Glamorous Black Studded Fringed Over The Knee Boots

Quick Tips for Wearing the Trend
  • Keep it modern with simple colors and prints.
  • Complete the look with a 1970s hairstyle - boho waves.
  • Pick boho pieces in black and other dark colors to keep the look more appropriate for fall and winter.
  • Keep jewelry simple with thin layered pieces like pendant necklaces, bangles, or stacking rings.
  • Transition your peasant tops into winter by layering on a faux fur vest.

Still feeling a bit lost with the 70s trend? Just go with anything boho-chic; think peasant blouse, free-flowing, and of course lots of fringe. It's the perfect excuse for the boho-chic lover (like me) to wear boho outfits typically reserved for spring and summer, well into fall.

  3. Great post! I loooove the fact that 70s fashion has become so prevalent, suede and fringing are my faves too. I'm also a bit obsessed with lace up tops/dresses and over the knee boots at the moment, as well as flares!
