How To Wear The 70s Style Trend

Overcoat: Primark| Purse: Vintage| Jeans: Gap Curvy Cropped Jeans| Top: Nordstorm|     Shoes: Sam Edelman

No White After Labor Day? Tell’em boy bye. I’ll wear what I want when I want. Truth be told I wanted to wear this amazing suede jacket back in July but that would have been just crazy.  I’m an 80s baby (1984 to be exact)  but the 70’s are back in full effect. But I’m not a trend person. I teach women my professional style philosophy…

Style is personal. You have to find what works for you. Don’t force it. Don’t follow trends.  Know your bra size, wear shapewear and follow your heart

So when I saw this coat I knew this would be my gateway to 70s style for Fall 2016. If your new to the to the 1970s trend think, fringe, baby blue eyeshadow, platforms and flare jeans. 

Stylist Tips For Incorporating This Trend

  • Start with Accessories: an earring or shoe is a great place to start. Its small enough to wear to work but punchy enough to make an impact. 
  • Pick Neutral Colors: I choose brown so that I may wear this with many things for different occasions. 
  •  Wear Classic Shapes: Wearing trending pieces in modern shapes and silhouettes so that will stand the test of time in your closet, no matter how much you paid for the item.

Second to my birthday Valentines Day is one of my all time favorite holidays. Call me a hopeless romantic if you want but I love, love. Commercialism aside, Valentines day is the perfect excuse to show someone just how much you love them, just because.

Not that long ago I told women what to get their guys for Valentines day. As I don’t think the day should be all about my fellow ladies. Men need to get some love too. Having said that, recently I partnered with Simon Malls, Philadelphia Mills Location to feature my favorite Valentines Day Gift Ideas for 2016. What I love most about “The Mills” is that you have designer brands at deep discounts as well as boutique sized big named retail brands. Here’s what I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Saks Off 5th and Neiman Marcus Last Call! 

  1. The Cards + Candy
