Ahhhh the 70s. From flower crowns and bell bottoms to suede and fringe, there was a lot to love about 70s fashion. And just like the 80s and 90s, there were a lot of trends to shake your head at.
Today I’m focusing on fashion pieces that have that 70s look, but with a modern twist. Look through the items I picked and let me know if you would wear them. I’ve created a few outfit ideas to give you some inspiration.
Retro Fashion Pieces from the 70s
Handbags – The saddle shoulder bag was a huge trend in the 70s and we’ve seen it make its comeback on several occasions. This handbag type can be worn crossbody or over one shoulder. Other handbag trends from the 70s include crossbody (but with a different shape than saddle bags), hobo bags and round. They come in colors from dark browns, light browns, burgundy and white. Some feature tassels, fringe or a very minimalist look.
I featured ones in several different price ranges, so happy browsing!
Pair these bags with your favorite casual fall outfit like one of these below.
Shoes – Without a doubt, platform shoes were a huge trend in the 70s. Quite a few of the pairs below would make the perfect summer to fall transitional shoe and will look great with dresses, skirts and those flare jeans you might decide to try. 😉
