Have you noticed that there have been countless 70s looks popping up on social media lately? They’ve been on my feed too — but I’m not complaining.
Bianca Jagger, Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy and Diane von Furstenberg are just a few of the style icons that I still look to for fashion inspiration now, and witnessing the resurrection of the looks they rocked back in the day inspires me to step up my style game now.
It’s not just me. Celebrities have been inspiring the reemergence of the era, with Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Dua Lipa stepping out in retro looks, while shoppers have been scouring the Internet for retro-inspired pieces too.
According to Lyst, searches for retro swimwear jumped 107% compared to this time last year, while the number of people looking up twisted halter neck pieces has increased by 24%.
If you’re amongst those wanting to embrace the 70s now, I’m here to help you out. I’ve compiled an edit of 1970s-inspired pieces you should consider adding to your current rotation, including headscarves, halterneck dresses, flares and more.
