Fall In Love With The ’70s

A guide to perfecting the season’s trend

By Hannah Kleinick

Almost every era has had its chance to return to the runways. This fall we’re grooving to the ’70s and embracing our inner Cher. Boho-chic silhouettes are the best way to transition into your fall wardrobe. From fringe accessories to bell-sleeved blouses, here is a guide to perfecting the look.

1. Suede

Invest in a suede piece to have a hint of ’70s style. Look for a brown suede skirt or jacket, or accessorize with a suede bag.

2. Peasant Dresses

Peasant dresses will give you the ultimate boho look. Pair your dress with tall boots and a floppy hat to look oh-so hippie chic.

3. Bell-Bottoms & Bell Sleeves

Put away your skinny jeans for the fall and grab flares instead. Flare jeans can flatter all body types. Throw on a pair of heels to make your legs look a mile long. Feeling daring? Slip on a bell-sleeved blouse with your flares for the full Farrah Fawcett effect.

4. Fringe

Fringe can be overwhelming, but it’s a fun way to accessorize for the fall. Choose a bag or shoes with fringe accents to incorporate this trend in your wardrobe.

5. Colors & Prints

Fun floral patterns are all the rage this season. Slip on a pair of bell-bottoms with a floral or lace blouse. Wine and olive are also great colors to ease your wardrobe into fall.
