I’m obsessed, I’m in love you guys… with the 70’s. Bell flares, high-waisted denim, warm browns, platforms, suede, round sunglasses, I want it all and I want it all in the same look apparently. Meet my (not so) new obsession and how I gave it a modern flare for today’s street style.
I think what I love most about this look is how flattering a pair of high-waisted flare denim are and how this blouse with it’s orang-y brown stripes reminds me of my grandma.
My grandma on my dad’s side is from Italy and I think I’m just drawn to the style from her generation. I love the trousers and cigarette pants she wears daily with a knotted blouse, and the one I’m wearing here reminds me of her and fuels my 70’s style obsession. I think that’s what a great outfit does, it makes you feel slightly like someone else, maybe a better version of yourself or like a style icon or other person (even fictional) of inspiration. This makes me feel like me with a gracious nod to my grandma.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate these bell flares though? I put these on and Ginuwine starts singing In Those Jeans in my ears. This particular pair I got from a local consignment shop but they are J Brand and I can’t find the exact pair anywhere, sorry! I did link a similar pair below but I think if you found a pair of flares from your favorite denim brand that fit you like a glove that would be the best way to go. Then we can dance to throw back slow jams together haha!
I have another 70’s inspired look planned to share with you guys so I hope you are enjoying these photos. Leave me a comment with your favorite era and maybe I will style something reminiscent of your favorite decade!
Thanks for spending some time with me,
