The 70s are back with a vengeance - and that's good news for fashionistas. This decade has long been praised as the golden era of style, but more than just being known for its iconic dresses and bell-bottoms, the 1970s were an era where social norms were turned on their head. Bold colors ruled supreme, as did different lengths and shapes in clothing. It was all about experimentation!

Casual Flares

Flares are often seen as too formal for a casual outfit. But this is not the case with these flares! They're made of heavier denim than what you might typically find on flared jeans and have a fantastic faded blue look. Pair them up with some basic white sneakers or brown sandals to complete your outfit.

Wrap Dresses

Wrap Dresses are making their way back into fashion with a vengeance! Not only are they super flattering on any body type, but there's no way of wearing them wrong.

Flattering for all figures and easy to wear, these dresses will become staples in your wardrobe this season if you're not already wearing one. The key is finding the right length wrap dress that suits your height.

These maxi lengths work well for those taller than average women, while those who are shorter may find themselves looking at a knee-length option instead.

Clogs

Clogs are timeless and stylish. They were all the rage in the 70s, with people wearing clogs on their feet and tucked into jeans to show off their socks, so why can't we enjoy them now?

Clog details have become more subtle over time, but they're still just as fantastic. Pair these shoes with a denim mini skirt or slouchy sweatshirt for that ultimate "70s-inspired" look.

Crochet

Crochet allows you to express yourself artistically. It has become popular with the influx of 70s-inspired clothing and accessories, so why not crochet your own?

Crocheting a dress will allow you to wear something long while still showing off those bare legs during warmer months or under shorter outfits when it's colder outside.

Denim Dresses

Denim dresses are a staple in the 70s-inspired fashion world. They're comfortable, casual, and can be dressed up for those more formal occasions or worn with flats on your day off to run errands.

Denim dresses will always have that "1970s" feel, but there are so many different styles you can choose from today!

Match your long sleeve dresses with tights or leggings for those colder days.

Long Satin Slips

Long satin slips are the perfect accent to any outfit. They are great in the warmer months because they feel light and airy, but you can also wear them with a blazer or suit for the wintertime!

Overalls

Wearing a pair of overalls is the perfect way to stay cool in the summertime. They are great for those who don't want their thighs rubbing together or prefer a looser fit, and they're also good if you have sensitive skin that gets irritated by tight-fitting clothes!

Patchwork

Patchwork is also excellent because it's versatile and doesn't require any sewing skills.

Push the boundaries with Patchwork clothing. Patchwork patterns are popular for a reason because they make any outfit feel unique.

Patching up a pair of jeans is an easy way to create your unique look. You can break the monotony with some patches on one leg or go for more symmetrical if you're feeling bold!

Suede Skirts

The best things about suede skirts are that they are so versatile! You can style them with any outfit and go from casual to dressy in seconds.

Suede skirts also come in a variety of colors, so you're never limited to just black or brown.

It's easy enough to pair your skirt with a long-sleeved button-down shirt tucked into the waistband, leather boots (or ankle booties!), round sunglasses on the face that makes it look more put together but still cute and effortless.

Or, if you want something else, try pairing these pieces with an oversized knit sweater for fall instead — a suede skirt is great because it has some stretch to accommodate different styles and sizes without sacrificing quality.

Suede skirts are perfect for the fall and winter months. They have a warm feeling, but they're also thin enough to layer under other clothes if it gets too cold.

Trouser Suits

Touser suits are also an excellent option for women who work in more casual fields, like retail or customer service. While these days it's becoming less and less common to have dress codes that require formal attire, trouser suites offer the best of both worlds: professional yet comfortable enough for a day at the office.

The best thing about trouser suits is they provide you with warmth while still being lightweight. They're perfect for fall when there can be unpredictable weather, and you need something light but cozy on your body all day long! Trouser suit skirts come in many different lengths, so no matter what height you are tall, this style will look flattering on any woman.

Trouser suits let you mix up your look in a way that's not too dramatic. They are perfect for the office, and they're also great if you want to wear something different but still professional enough for work!

Maxi Dress

The best thing about maxi dresses is how comfortable they are. They're perfect for days you want to be effortless and relaxed without having to worry about too much clothing around your body. Maxi dresses also come in various lengths, so whether you like shorter maxis or longer ones, this style will work for any woman's height!

Maxi dresses are some of the most famous pieces of clothing from the 70s, but they're still popular today. The maxi dress is a great way to wear something comfortable and flattering without wearing jeans or pants!

Bell-Bottoms

The best thing about bell-bottoms is how they hug your body in all the right places. They're comfortable, fun, and come in a variety of different styles! Bell-bottoms are best for women with a larger bum area or women with shorter legs because they help create the illusion of length.

Bell-bottoms were all the rage in the 70s, and we're sure that's not going to stop anytime soon! They come in so many different styles now, from denim skirts to sequined pairs, it can be hard to find just one pair you love. It may take some time for you to figure out your perfect style, but once you do, there'll be no stopping you!
