Spring has not yet sprung in Chicago and I'm already fantasizing about bare legs and open-toed shoes (sans socks or tights). My daydreams consist of neutral palettes, wide leg pants, and could possibly moonlight as an extra on Three's Company. From an outsider's perspective, the '70s were phenomenal. Disco was born (and subsequently died), pants rose high and their cuffs ran wide, Farrah ruled as queen, and platforms were a necessity. That's not to say the '70s didn't have its shortcomings (see: polyester leisure suits); However, it's difficult not to embrace the best this decade had to offer. For spring, I'm smitten with both structured and flowing blouses that can be tucked into high-waisted bellbottoms for a effortlessly tailored look, along with glamorous maxi dresses in neutral shades, à la Bianca Jagger, for a night out on the town.
To properly pay homage to this great decade, I’ll be resurrecting some of my retro, wedge platforms that got little attention last summer along with my favorite wide-leg jeans. I’m also hoping to pick up a few more printed, silk tops to polish off this trend. 1970s mania seems to come and go every few years which ultimately shows its sustainability as a style; it was truly a decade that cultivated wardrobe classics. Never stow away these closet staples for too long as they will always be in fashion again at some point or another—unless, of course, it's a polyester leisure suit.
