For all purposes, I wasn’t alive during the 1970s. I missed extreme bell bottoms and disco fever. Those Facebook articles that come along now and again that say “What You Know if You’re a 70’s Baby”? Not a clue about it.
What I can say about the 1970s? I love the fashion. No, not that. Not the loud and extreme and over the top, costume like fashion. But the 70s vibe that in this season’s trends? That I love. From pussycat bows to boot cut pants to platforms. To this skirt, that’s not quite 70s, but gave me that vibe.
Maybe it’s the color combo (and I’ll be honest, yellows aren’t usually what I gravitate to), or the pattern, but there was something about this skirt that I couldn’t resist. It felt so modern and yet so retro, and everytime I throw it on I can’t help but feel like I’m giving off that vibe.
This skirt is from the Richard Allan X HM collab. All pieces in the collection were outstanding-slightly 70s, full of patterns and colors, and easy to mix and match. There are plenty of ways to step away from the 70s vibe. Pair it with tee-shirts, sneakers, a simple heel, or a sweater. However, I couldn’t help but embrace that 70s vibe. Pairing it with boots, a leotard, and head scarf? Easy (and can hide all sorts of bad hair days), chic (I could write for days how we all need leotards), and classic.
Maybe the point is that something we thought was extreme can really be something we want to embrace. Like that 70s vibe?
This skirt has sold out, but this print is on dresses and scarves, I’ve also linked other items from the collab!
