The 70s are back in style and this fashion blogger from Spain knows it! Flared jeans are popping up everywhere these days but we really love the way this rich brown pair (they look like they might be corduroy) stands out from your classic blue wash. The color is a nice warm option for fall and is dark enough to flatter any body type. She really encompasses the relaxed and laidback look of the era by pairing the jeans with simple items like a white blouse, beaded necklace, and long shoulder bag. Some things are meant to be left in the past, but this style definitely was not!

Top three reasons why we love the 70’s era: Jimi Hendrix, 8 track tapes, and the beautiful Farrah Fawcett. It was an era that transformed peace loving hippies into rocking trendsetters of the 80’s. Believe it or not, the 1970s also perpetually inspired our style, with key pieces such as macrame, fringe, floppy hats, and feathered jewelry. Denim pieces such as, wide leg pants, and button up skirts were essentially must have items. Combine these two elements and you have the effortlessly chic style of the 70s. So it’s easy to see why the trend has come back into play, Bohemian “boho chic” (seen below) is a modern 70s flair that screams sexy and powerful but not to overdone. After all, who wouldn’t want to kick butt (think Charlie Angels) in a pair of wide leg high rise pants? We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Now that we’ve entered into a new year, there’s no time like the present to go back — way back — to the 70s. With 2010 ending in skinny bell jeans, thanks to brands like 7 For All Mankind and some innovative tailoring from Stone Blue Jeans‘ mini flare “Jessie” jeans, 2011 is poised for a 1970s revival in all things denim. Ironically, for men, we will likely continue to see the slim, narrow and boot cuts, but in vintage washes.
Since everyone still seems to be hooked on the slim/skinny jeans look, be on the look out for the evolution of skinny bell bottoms, vintage denim washes, chambray work shirts (great for early spring!), and possibly — dare we say — double denim looks. We think the bell bottom look will catch on easily with women, while lots of vintage finishes and bleached-out washes will be out in stores for men, in time for spring-summer 2011.
