Over the past few weeks, I have become really interested in 70s fashion.
I’ve always loved 70s fashion. It’s fun and free! Additionally, I feel that music was a strong factor for how people dressed. I’ve been going through a change in my life and have become more inspired with fashion. My style is a changing. Although I don’t think I will be fully dressing in the 70s aesthetic, I do plan on incorporating 70s style but with a twist. I will not aim to recreate outfits, though it may happen. My plan is to dress how I want to dress. I will mix styles and make them to my comfort.
These are the 70s inspired items I will be incorporating…in a way, this is my fashion board? If that makes sense. The following things are an accumulation of things I want to bring into the mix.
- Ringer Shirts
This style of shirts is always around year long. They are usually t-shirts with the lining of the collar/sleeves being of a different color. I have worn them since I was little and just recently bought some new ones. Stores are actually carrying many ringer tees nowadays since summer is upon us. These shirts are what I always Venice beach skaters wearing.
- Stripes, but a specific stripe.
Thick stripes that are not black and white. In the past years, stripes have become a huge fashion trend. However, the stripes that are the norm are black/ white or blue/white…which play on a nautical theme.
- Shift dresses
I have actually always like shift dresses. They are one of the most comfortable dress styles.
If I am not being clear, the style I want to embody is a reflection of films I have currently been watching. Putting music aside, films are a huge influence. My life has revolved around studying music and film, which makes me want to pay homage to the things I love. As for the style part, these are the films that make inspire me:
- Almost Famous (2000)
- The Last Waltz(1978)
- Lords of Dogtown (2005)4. Blow Up (1966)
I will be posting more about this style change in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
