5 Subtle Ways To Try The '70s Style Trend Everyone's Talking About

Peace, love and patchwork.

It's no secret that the '70s are back. From the runways to the streets, fashionistas everywhere are paying homage to the decade of playful, far out style. But while the trend is known for being daring and bold, there are still simple ways to get in on the fun without stepping out in a full-on disco get-up.

Check out our tips below and get inspired to experiment with your own take on the look.

Tip #1

'70s Vibes - Suede

Soft and sleek suede adds an extra textural element to any ensemble. Try swapping a leather or denim basic with a suede piece to give your outfit a retro boost.

Tip #2

'70s Vibes - Flares

Reminiscent of the disco days, flares are the spunkiest, and most recognizable, way to get the '70s look. Don't feel like flares can only work with denim, though. While wide-leg jeans are always cute, you can also try out the trend with a traditional trouser in a funky print or unexpected crop.

Tip #3

'70s Vibes - Rounded Frames

Big shades just scream '70s cool. Treat them like you would a statement accessory. Get creative and show your playful side with a bold colored frame, or keep it classic with a tortoise print.

Tip #4

'70s Vibes - Patchwork

Patchwork gives off that effortless just-thrown-together vibe, which is so fun to rock for weekend brunch or a casual dinner date. The style has just as much personality as a daring print, but is easier to mix and match.

Tip #5

'70s Vibes - Fringe

If you're craving something fun, fringe is the way to go. Lending just the right amount of movement, fringe instantly adds interest to a simple outfit. It's also extremely versatile and can work on anything from sweaters to sneakers.
