This spring, #ThrowbackThursday is every day—the '70s-inspired look is taking the fashion world by storm this season. While we’re all for some fringe and round sunnies, it can definitely be tough to pull off the throwback look without looking like you’re wearing a costume. The secret to '70s chic? Most of this season’s trendiest pieces look super on-point with staples you already own—add one or two retro pieces and to your favorite basics to let it do the talking! Get ready for your chicest #TBT yet.
1. A-line skirts are everything
The major skirt shape to score those '70s vibes? The A-line skirt. While suede versions of this shape seem to by flying off the racks everywhere, you don’t need major $$$ to get the look! Try a corduroy or faux suede version, which is way more budget friendly. To modernize this classic shape, add basics you already have in your closet, like your favorite denim jacket and a striped crop top!
2. Show some shoulder
An off-the-shoulder top in a retro, super bohemian-esque print is the perfect way to add a little color to your look! To make it new and now, black high-waisted jean shorts tone down the look—and what better way to show some leg than in super summery gladiator sandals? Finish off the look with boho accessories, like a bucket bag and dainty leaf necklace.
3. Platforms please!
When you’re wearing multiple '70s-inspired pieces at once, boyfriend jeans add the perfect dose of modern to your outfit. (And who doesn’t love their combined comfy-cute factor?) A tie-collar blouse is the perfect way to add a subtle touch of throwback. Dress it up with platform heels and a cobalt blue fringe bag for a colorful twist on your typical tan suede! Top it off with round sunnies—a necessity for those warm spring days.
