Perhaps you’ve already noticed, but fashion has a way of repeating itself. And now, we’re in an era where—for the most part—no specific trend stands out over another. Maximalist, ’80s-inspired trends like acid-wash denim and bold shoulders are just popular as slip dresses and spaghetti straps from the ’90s—and between those two major decades in fashion are the ’70s, which always seem to emerge back to the surface of fashion trends.
Like any decade in fashion, the ’70s has given us pieces that will remain firmly in the years of rock music. That said, the decade of bell-bottom jeans and psychedelic prints has also served as a point of sartorial inspiration time and time again. To prove our point, we took a scroll through Instagram to find the best ’70s outfits our favorite It girls are sporting now that are just as stylish as the looks that inspired them. From cool (and warm) graphic sweaters to disco-ready sets, these groovy looks will, no doubt, inspire your next ensemble.
Style Tip: Nothing says the '70s quite like a sweater vest. Style yours with an old-school polo and trousers for a prep school–inspired ensemble.
