Are you more hippie or boho?

The seventies was the era of romantic liberalism and the height of the disco fever. With the welcome irreverence of style rules, we saw the birth of many fashion fads that celebrated carefree individualism and uniqueness. Keep the ‘70s funk alive today by keeping in mind these six defining details of this decade:

Tassels & Fringe

Nothing best describes the ‘70s than tassels and fringe. Incorporate a hint of this decade into your accessories like your earrings, bandanas, and bags.
