hello people...hope everyone is doing ok.
i am so excited about the spring 2011 trends. my favorite is the vintage 70's look.
ive always loved the look of the 70's. very carefree, yet sophisticated. for a great 70's "day" look try:
1-High waisted wide-leg pants or flares, smartly belted in
2-Neat bow-blouses, especially ones with billowing or bishop sleeves. Particularly great are fabrics like silk and satin.
3-Roll neck sweaters tucked into pants or skirts. Add to the '70s effect by layering over beaded necklaces or a vest
4-For those more daring, a pair of hotpants are the ultimate '70s item
5-A smart printed jumpsuit is another great alternative
(hot pants- and her top and bottom are mixed patterns)
for a vintage 70's night look try:
1-Choose high sheen fabrics with a '70s disco-inspired edge, like lurex or silk; anything with a metallic thread
2-Add a ruffled neckline under a brocade blazer or tuxedo jacket, paired with a sharp pair of pants
3-Long, slinky gowns with draping, low necklines or dress slits are the ultimate in '70s night time glamour
next up is the best part, in my opinion anyway, ACCESSORIES!
1-The right handbag completes a look. Try for smart, high quality bags like a leather satchel for day, and a small bag with a long strap for night.
2-Big, statement leather belts slung over mini skirts or maxi dresses add impact and fair to a seventies-inspired outfit.
3-A pair of on-trend thigh-high boots are probably already be in your wardrobe by now - pair them with hot pants or a skirt for a sexed-up yet sophisticated '70s look.
4-Wear lots of jewellery - but keep it a little cleaner than for a boho look. Try lots of ringslwith bold stones, neat piles of bangles, and long pendant necklaces and strings of beads.
5-Look to complimentary hairstyles like a sleek longer bob, masses of bouncy curls, or long flowing hair.
im so in love with mixing patterns.
i feel the vintage 70's look gives off a vibe of boldness and independence.
next...time to e-shop and see where i can find these funky styles for spring.
