That 70's Glow

If you look at my iTunes playlists, you quickly learn I have an affinity for Barry White, Stevie Wonder, The Bee Gees, Chicago, and The Isley Brothers, to name a few. Yes, this gal loves her 70s music, a good thing because the 70s is back, baby! 

Step foot into any clothing store, pick up a fashion magazine or look at any major fashion blog, and you will see the 70s is dominating fall and winter fashion. This is a trend I can easily embrace; I already have the soundtrack!  But how can you spin this look with a 2015 freshness and not end up like a cliche that stepped out of a Charlie's Angels episode (the orginal, natch)? Think individual pieces. Rather than wear every 70s trend at once, combine one or two of the following elements that are reminiscent of the decade:


  1. Bell-bottom pants, especially in denim
  2. Fitted turtle-neck sweater
  3. A-line skirt
  4. Tie-neck blouse, peasant blouse


  1. Brown (almost any shade)
  2. Mustard
  3. Burgundy


  1. Suede
  2. Fringe
  3. Dark denim
  4. Corduroy

Today we are hanging out in sunny Coney Island, channeling a bit of that California 70s boho glow with a tie-neck peasant blouse and a denim A-line skirt. While this is not my usual black-on-black NY standard, I must admit, this outfit does have me feeling rather...groovy.
