We're only part way through New York Fashion Week, but if there's one trend emerging for Fall 2015 above the rest, I've got to say it's that 70s influence.
A number of designers sent down pieces and whole looks inspired by the decade. The best part? You can actually get ahead of the curve & shop the trend now!
Here are some easy ways to work a 70s influence into your spring wardrobe...
Turtlenecks layered under, well, everything was a huge look on the runways. We saw this at Mara Hoffman, Banana Republic, Jill Stuart, Thakoon, and more. Get the look this spring with a shortsleeve version by GUESS, which is also very Rachel Green a la Friends as well.
BCBG sent down coats in a colorful array of woven fabrics. And while a thick coat might not work for spring, you can start incorporating the trends through a woven bag.
Over-the-knee boots are the perfect item to bridge the trend gap. They are currently very in right now, but a suede version, like this pair from Sam Edelman, are also very 70s inspired. Wear them down with your favorite shorts & skirts.
Feather pendants were seen on the Rebecca Minkoff runway and another way to ease yourself into a trend. Layer on this budget-friendly version (only $14) with just about anything in your closet.
Peasant dresses were a hit with many designers and you can start getting the look with a peasant top. This one by Rachel Zoe is sleek in black.
What is a 70s style list without a pair of flare jeans? Ive slowly been seeing more and more people wearing this style (a great break from skinnies). My favorite pairs are dark washed and high waisted, like this J Brand pair, and probably feature some button detailing.
Last, but not least, chiffon maxi dresses were also a hit at Rebecca Minkoff. Urban Outfitters has a number of versions right now that you can wear alone this spring then under your favorite leather jacket this Fall.
So, are you feeling the 70s right now, or no? Tell me in the comments below.
