’70s Style

This season, that ’70s silhouette is popping up everywhere – from work-appropriate pantsuits to dramatic disco-esque maxi dresses. Take the look above, from Rachel Zoe’s Fall 2011 collection, that reinterprets the bell bottom and matching jacket to feel totally this century.

Likewise, this über-sexy embellished gown from YSL Spring 2012 has a bit of Studio 54 married with modern embellishments like hand-beadwork and a naval-grazing neckline. In between the two is a glamorous jumpsuit in red silk from Emanuel Ungaro, below. The gold collar necklace and belt bring subtle sparkle to an effortless ensemble.

So what are the best ways to infuse a little bit of ’70s glam to your own wardrobe? For day, there’s nothing like a classic pocketbook that feels a bit preppy. Try a simple silhouette like this LOUIS VUITTON Lilac Epi Reverie Shoulder Bag, or go more boho with a slouchy texture like this woven Bottega Veneta classic.

For evening, a little glitter never hurt. We love this JIMMY CHOO Silver Metal & Rhinestone Clutch Bag because it feels a bit like a disco ball. If you’re looking for sleek sophistication, our pick is this VBH Sand Glitter Canvas Manila Clutch. The classic envelope style is timeless but the shimmering canvas gives it a modern twist.
