70's for the 21st Century
The 70's style is a HUGE trend for this year.
Here are some tips on how to modernize the 70's trend for the 21st century.
Think That 70's Show meets Gossip Girl
-platforms are like so 1970 but wedges are so 2010.
-pair a wedged sandal or heel with flared or wide legged pants for a long and lean look that is within our century.
-When picking a bottom go for a denim or light neutral colour. White is going to be a big trend for pants.
-An easy way to get the 70's looking without looking like you just stepped out of a time machine is to wear a flared/wide legged bottom wide sleeved top that fits closer to the body and adding a boyfriend jacket on top.
- now if you want to wear a dress opt for the maxi. The maxi can be dressed up and/or dressed down very easily. This is a staple item for spring/summer 2011. For a dressy look go for a black with gold accessories. For more of a casual day time look pick one that has lots of colour and pair it with a sandal and chunky bold accessories.
*gold was the colour for accessories in the 1970's and bold jewelry was also very popular. So if you just want a hint of the 70's without the whole package go BIG and go GOLD.
*make-up in the 70's was very colourful and playful. Pick colours from your outfit to give yourself a clean modern 70's make-up look.
*hair wasn't as big as the 60's but don't think that gives you any reason to get rid of the hairspray. &0's hairstyles were all about wavy flipped curls and messy updo's. When using a straightener flip the ends of your hair back and add hairspray but fan it out to give it that messy 21st century meets 70's hair.
*flared jeans with a raglan sleeved top that is fitted on the torso
*same look but added a boyfriend fit jacket
*make-up used bright colours on the eyes but toned it down with a light pink gloss and bronzer with a light pink blush on the cheeks
*gold dangling earring with a metallic headband kills two trends with one look.
Hope this helps everyone modernize the 70's for the 21st century!!!!!
