The 1970s were known for some of the brightest, boldest, and most striking style statements to date. Although many were still riding on the coattails of the hippie-inspired boho look of the 1960s, a sense of sophistication and glamour crept in the following decade. That’s right, we’re talking about disco-esque bell-bottoms, hot pants, colorful knits, and delicate neck scarves that accentuated perfectly feathered hair in just the right way.
This age of fashion-forward thinking also catapulted some of the most notable style icons into the spotlight. From the undeniable, bohemian charm of Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell to the ultra-flashy enchantment of disco divas like Diana Ross, we can’t help but continue to pay homage to a decade of greats in the fashion world.
Just like all eras (we see you, ’90s), some key styles of the ’70s have come full circle for the upcoming season. Although it’s been almost 50 years, the disco spirit (or should we say groove?) has returned in the absolute best way. Whether you’re looking for a whimsical printed dress, go-go-inspired white boots or even an all-denim, Farrah Fawcett-esque jumpsuit, it’s out there this fall. Scroll down for some ’70s style pieces that are beyond far out.
