Let me give you an image for the 70’s sophistication look: the movie, Saturday Night Fever, women being bold, defiant, and independent, big floppy hates, glamorous cigarette holders, exotic looking jewelry, and crazy platform heels. Are you getting a picture?? No? Okay, let me explain more.
This is a great day time look. High waist, wide-leg pant. Airy, silk or satin blouses.
This is what a 70’s sophistication night-time look. This would be disco attire: anything with metallic luster or silk. Long shiny dresses, with low necklines and possibly high slits. For something even a tad bit more dramatic, 70’s hot pants.
Accessories, shoes, and hair are also important. Belts over a long maxi dress or mini skirt. A satchel purse during the day and a purse with a long strap or chain strap for the evening. Thigh high boots are a must for this look. Lots and LOTS of jewelry but in a neat way; lots of rings, and bangles, long necklaces and beads with pendants. Over-sized shades. Hair bob’s or long flowing hair.
This look is really fun. It’s like going into a time machine in the 70’s and living up in the disco era. I’m really, REALLY excited about the metallic maxi dresses with plunging necklines, especially if you have nice tata’s. 🙂 I love a pair of huge shades and ONCE AGAIN…I’m happy designers are starting to stray away from the skinny, not get rid of it, but just play in something new. I also love the long straps on purses, I’ve been waiting on that one. I wonder how long this will last though. The 70’s boho lasted awhile so who knows, but I give this probably one or two seasons. I know that thrift store shopping will come in great handy for this trend though. So go out and shop thrifty to find some cool vintage. SEND ME PICS! 🙂 I can’t wait to go out in my shiny, 70’s clothing!!!
