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.

Flared and bell-bottom jeans perhaps defined what the ‘70s really is. This cut both embraced the body while still allowing movement.

Frills & Ruffles
Frills and ruffles brought about the romantic and dreamy side of the decade. Wear this retro cut with shorts for a more relaxed vibe.

The highlight of the ‘70s relaxed style are the boho dresses oozing with femininity that require minimum effort. Pair one with ankle boots and a wide-brim hat and you’re good to go!

Make your garb extra special by incorporating interesting fabrics like suede. Wear it in patches or on your shoes to soften your look.

Wearing chunky heels is one of the easiest ways to embellish your ‘70s ensemble. Add some height and extra groove to any outfit with a pair of these platform shoes.
