Catherine Zeta-Jones was raised in the ’70s, and her style reflects that. The 1969-born actress recently stepped out in a foxy lady look that all of us should use as a guide to the returning trend.
The decade has reared its head on many runways over the last two years and in the wardrobes of celebrities like Hilary Duff, Sophie Turner, and Gigi Hadid. However, no one has nailed the look like Zeta-Jones did Tuesday.
Zeta-Jones strutted her way through JFK in so much suede and flare, she may have turned the airport into a time machine. The time-traveling outfit started with a gray suede fedora. The Ocean’s Twelve star played with proportions, pairing flared culottes with a longer tweed coat. She was committed to the 1970s color scheme of earth tones — the cropped bell-bottoms were olive green and her silky shirt was burnt orange. Let’s not forget her brown suede Prada lace-up boots that traveled up her leg under the culottes; they not only stuck to the color scheme but also rounded out her collection of 1970s-favored materials. These $1,600 shoes with a chunky heel made the outfit.
Naturally, she left her long hair loose in waves. She covered her face in oversized sunglasses with a slight aviator shape. And while aviators are highly popular now, let’s not forget that they were even more popular in the ’70s, seen on the faces of icons like Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver and Iggy Pop.
Of course, she wouldn’t be the woman she is without a bit of luxury, so she carried a tan leather Hermès Birkin tote, which had a scarf hanging from it in keeping with the ’70s theme.
In summary, if you’re looking to blend any elements from this era into your wardrobe, look no further than Zeta-Jones in this very outfit — she perfectly revived the ’70s style, blending it with today’s trends seamlessly.
