FASHION FLASHBACK FRIDAY: THROWBACK TO THE 70’S

70'S fashion

It’s Flashback Friday and what better way to throw it back than to celebrate the groovy 70’s fashion style. From Gucci to Saint Laurent to Tom Ford, designers this Season have us reminiscing about flare jeans and fringe, Charlie’s Angels and The Brady Bunch, sequins and disco. Take a look at some of our top picks and get in on one of Spring’s most popular trends with your own 70’s- inspired look. Shop from the convenience of your own couch with our online store Posh at Play. From blouses to skirts to dresses to jeans, we carry a wide selection of 70’s styled clothing that you’ll want to add to your wardrobe this year. So what are you waiting for? Put on some themed music from “The Who” or “The Rolling Stones” to inspire your shopping experience.

SEQUIN DRESS

During the later half of the 70’s, the disco movement rose to become one of the most popular forms of music and dancing entertainment, with a culture all it’s own. Sequined dresses, leisure suits, and platform shoes were quintessential fashion items found at every disco club across the country. This Season, revive the disco style in your wardrobe with a sequined camisole dress, perfect for your next night on the town. Get the above look with Hale Bob’s copper cami sequined dress or go for a different color “bling” with the pewter cami sequined dress. Pair with your favorite dancing heels or go “athleisure” in your sequined dress, camel overcoat, and red Nike sneakers for a casual daytime look. Either way, you are sure to sparkle in style this Season.

FLARE DENIM JEANS

                        THEN                                         NOW

Nothing says “70’s” more than the flare denim jean. Seen all over the runways for 2015, the flare jean is this Season’s newest denim trend. Earlier this year, L.A.-based company Citizen’s of Humanity launched a 5-piece collection, releasing a brand new flare jean style each month, December through February. Throw your skinnies to the back, and start shopping your favorite flare look, one for every occasion. We love  AC Collection’s medium wash flare, similar to Citizen’s of Humanity’s newest “Fleetwood” silhouette, paired with a button down top and chunky wedges for midday activities. For a day at the beach or your favorite music concert, go “Boho” with Hudson’s light wash “Ferris” flare jeans paired with an ivory lace trimmed cami from Hale Bob, long fringe vest, floppy hat, and flat sandals. Dress up your flares with AC Collection’s high waisted black dress pants, perfect for the office, business lunch, or a night out.

MAXI DRESS

     THEN                                       NOW

While the 60’s shocked the world with the short “Mini” skirt silhouette, the 70’s went the complete opposite direction in fashion with the rise of the “Boho” maxi length. Back as one of this Season’s hottest skirt lengths, designers like Diane von Furstenberg and BCBGMAXAZRIA have updated the maxi dress with fresh patterns and textures for today’s modern style. Known for interesting patterns, “Boho” style, and popular among celebrities from Paris Hilton to Halle Berry, Hale Bob fashion is the perfect place to shop for your favorite maxi dresses and skirts.Get Nicole Richie’s similar look with Hale Bob’s coral floral maxi dress with unique racer back flare. We also love Hale Bob’s halter maxi dresses, flattering for every figure, in bright coral pink or mixed patterns. If maxi dresses aren’t quite for you, try a skirt, perfect for the beach or everyday style. Pair Hale Bob’s purple printed maxi skirt or the zebra print maxi skirt with a flowy ivory blouse and flat sandals. Have a wedding coming up this Summer? We’ve got you covered with Hale Bob’s delicate ivory lace maxi dress or vintage pink jersey maxi. Feel the 70’s vibe, and add  your own maxi dress or skirt to your wardrobe this Season.

                            THEN                                       NOW

From Chloe to Givenchy, peasant blouses were another favorite 70’s-inspired trend to hit the runways this year. With celebs like Carrie Underwood sporting the look, now’s the time to add the peasant blouse to your Spring and Summer wardrobe. This versatile blouse can be paired with your comfy flare jeans or swimsuit for casual days, and also goes perfectly with a sleek pencil skirt or leather leggings for upscale evenings. We love Hale Bob’s beaded black and white peasant tunic or go with some color in the deep navy beaded tunic top. Search the “Cabana” section for more great peasant blouse selections in a wide variety of colors and patterns from Hale Bob.

FLORAL SHORTS

            THEN                                         NOW

We can always count on musician Taylor Swift to bring the latest fashion trend to the streets in style. Being best friends with fashion runway model Karlie Kloss, Taylor definitely gets a first hand view on the latest popular styles and how to wear them. Since big floral prints are trending for Spring, we love “the-old-is-now-new” flower patterned shorts. Try Liberty Garden’s cotton trimmed floral chambray shorts paired perfectly with your peasant blouse and flat sandals. Or, go denim with pink and purple floral shorts from Joe’s Jeans. Look for floral print to continue into the Fall Season with floral jeans and pants.

FLORAL DRESS

                                 THEN                                   NOW

Not only are floral bottoms a huge trend this year, but also look for the print in Spring and Summer “Boho” dresses, a throwback to the 70’s. “Boho” styled dresses (Bohemian for short) are characterized by flowing sleeves, a loose fit, and swirling skirt. The style first became popular in the swinging 60’s with the “Hippy” movement based on freedom and letting loose. The style continued into the 70’s with a more “fitted” waistline and bolder patterns. Get your own “Boho” style look with a purple floral drop waist shirt dress from Hale Bob, or go with bolder print in the blue tank dress with twirl skirt. We also love Hale Bob’s black and white silk cotton shirt dress paired with a swimsuit and flat sandals for a walk on the beach or dressed up with strappy heels and a leather clutch for a hot summer night on the town.
