How To Do: 70s Fashion (Part 1)!

How To Do: 70s Fashion (Part 1)!

On Monday I showed you how to get the Navajo look for a high-budget. However today, I’m going to show you how to get the 70s look.  The Parisienne label Chloé is a perfect inspiration for the 70s look.

70s dressing is romantic, floral and floaty. From fedoras, to culottes…here’s how:


Wear fedoras with dresses, high-waisted flares, or midi skirts to channel this season’s trend.

Culottes are basically cut-off trousers designed to look like skirts. Wear culottes with knitted sweaters, chunky coats, or knee boots.
