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.
High Waist Flared Jeans
Every '70s girl needs a classic pair of bell bottoms. These high waist, flare jeans add some extra volume to your typical T-shirt and denim outfit.
Fringe Suede Jacket
This vintage-inspired fringe jacket takes a modern turn with its vibrant lavender shade.
Long Violet Coat
Channel your inner Caberet with this Liza Minelli-approved faux-fur coat. Not only is it chock-full of glitz, but it'll also keep you cozy as the weather gets colder.
Although we're not referring to the real '70s, we can't help but think of 14-year-old Mila Kunis on That '70s Show when we see a brightly colored neck scarf. This multi-purpose accessory can also be wrapped around your ponytail on a bad hair day, or tightly tied to the strap of your favorite purse.
C’est La V Woodstock Flare Pants
Strap on some roller skates and hit the rink in these boogie-down bad boys. If you're not a fan of roller disco (we get it), you can rock these flare pants with your favorite off-the-shoulder top and platform sandals for a retro look.
The Clinger Bootie
White boots made a serious comeback last fall, and we're not ready to let go just yet. The best part? These investment booties are 50% off!
This short-sleeve knit would definitely be Brady Bunch-approved. For the ultimate Marcia look, pair it with a high-waisted suede skirt and dainty sneakers.
Carthage Embroidered Peasant Top
The peasant blouse has come and gone over the years, but we're hoping it'll stay a while this time around.
Sienna Rattan Heel
If you're feeling like a real style dare-devil, pair these patterned heels with frilly white socks and a T-shirt dress for a low-key night out.
Farrah ’70s Jumpsuit
Citizens of Humanity
We couldn't even imagine compiling a roundup of '70s clothes without a denim jumpsuit.
Star Embellished Platform Sneakers
I think Stella McCartney has a pretty good idea of 1970s style, considering her father was a member of one of the most iconic bands of that time. These platform sneakers provide all the comfort of flats, with the added excitement of heels.
Plus Size Button-Front Corduroy Skirt
Wear this upgraded version of a denim skirt to work with a button up blouse and classic, black mules.
’70s Stripe Fitted Tee
This fitted top is an elevated version of your favorite slouchy tee.
Polka-Dots Asymmetric Jumpsuit
Violeta by Mango
This wide leg, polka-dot jumpsuit can be dressed up with heels for a formal event or dressed down with sneakers for an everyday occasion.
Heritage 55mm Cat Eye Sunglasses
Gloria Steinem isn't just an activist for feminism and women's rights, she's also a style icon in her own right. These oversize glasses will help you look chic, and feel like you can (and should) take the world by storm.
