One of the most fascinating aspects of the modern world of fashion is how designers try to bring something new two to four times a year (if not more) and on the other hand, the public use so-called 'timeless' pieces, or pieces from different eras, then mix-&-match them. To a large extent, this is where street-style bloggers have a role to play: they can show which of the old pieces are seen again and can start new trends.
One of the best reasons to buy an iPad is the ability to enlarge your photos with a pinch of my fingers and really take in all of the details. I love how the first girl has matched the Twilly in her hair with her nail polish (or vice versa!) and her well-loved LV bag just adds to the '70's vibe. She's proof you don't need to dress expensively to dress well, especially in your '20's!
I love these denim outfits, I remember travelling through Europe in my denim dress in the '70's and trying to wash it out in the tub at night. (Not advisable. I love the tattoo on her shoulder with the off the shoulder thin sweater underneath the dress. That's cool.
Just when you thought the 70's had died (again). In truth i think the 70's were a super-sexualized period and make good fashion inspiration. I hope people never stop dressing like this (glad to see 70's throwbacks are going strong for a 3rd decade). Once again good observations Scott!
Would love to know where to buy a dress like the one in the second picture. Anyone know? (I think there was a lovely Stella McCartney one with buttons down the front but I'm hoping for something a little less pricey!)
What's funny is my favorite part of the outfits is not the denim but the choice of shirts to go with them. In the first photo I love that turtle-neck, it somehow gives off a vintage yet modern at the same time. In the second photo, how sexy is that off the shoulder sweater under that jumper?! Amazing!
I love the girl at the top – she is gorgeous. But those knees…….!! I think that knees have to be perfect before they are shown off, and they just can't be blotchy or saggy or bumpy or ugly in any way. I know that if you'd taken her picture sitting down, I'd never have made these comments, as it's probably just the way she's standing that makes her knees look ugly. Otherwise she's exquisite, with the scarf in her hair and the nails and lipstick pulling it all together with the denim.
thank you for saying this is 70's! i was so annoyed this summer to see lines like Stella McCartney's and others with all of the denim and calling it new. not only was it not new, it was unattractive, and a far cry from creativity or innovation.
