the ’70s look

So as we all know, trends come and go. The 70s trends that’s currently in style is the sophisticated look.

Even the more demure looks need to be carried off with an air of sexuality and a sort of defiant independence. The 70s trend can be noticed immediately and has a very bold look to it.

This look can be achieved by wearing high-waisted flare jeans or pants with a belt. The blouses are usually silk or satin. Roll neck sweaters tucked into pants or tight skirts. Add to the ’70s effect by layering over beaded necklaces or a vest.

Jumpsuits are also a 70s trend and you can find ones almost anywhere in the mall. Choose high sheen fabrics with a ’70s disco-inspired edge, like lurex or silk or really anything with a metallic thread to it.

There are also a lot of accessories that go along with this trend. For example the sun glasses Kim Kardashian is wearing in the picture below.

Thigh high boots paired with a skirt or shots are also adorable. When you are wearing jewelry with this trend you want to keep it simple and wear lots of rings.

Maxi Dresses

One of personal favorites of the season are maxi dresses. Maxi dresses are long flowing dresses that can be any pattern or color. The reason why I like them so much is because they are flattering on almost any body type. A maxi dress is the perfect outfit for any summer day because you can wear it during the day and look really cute without even trying that hard and still staying extremely comfortable. You can also wear them at night and add a wedge heel or regular heels to spice the outfit up a little bit.

You can find all types of maxi dresses right now. Almost every store you look will have them. You can go for any style as well. There are floral print ones that have the more hippie vibe to them or solid color ones you could pair with a chunky necklace or cute belt.

The nice thing about maxi dresses is that if its a little breezy or cold outside it will be the perfect solution to your shorts and tank top dilemma. It covers a little more skin than some people are used to but the overall look of maxi dresses is absolutely adorable.

Here are three cute examples of maxi dresses:

Clogs

Recently clogs have come back in style. Everyone knows how popular clogs used to be and this season they are becoming an even bigger fashion icon. Clogs are usually wooden with wooden soles and the front covers your whole foot. There are some clogs that have a peep-toe but most are closed-toed. Clogs are nice because they can be warn year round. The most popular style of clogs right now is the wooden heel. The style of heels that is popular right now has become the more chunky style.

There are also different versions of clogs available that look more like sandals. The come in various colors and the overall shape of them is less clog like. They are a great alternative for those who aren’t really feeling the entire clog look.

Crop Tops

Crop tops have come and gone throughout the years, changing style in many different ways. Crop tops are usually mid-drift tops that show your stomach and are perfect for the summertime. This season crop tops are totally in. The new style of crop top this spring is to be more fitted and fancy then in previous years. The styles that I have been seeing have been tighter fits with plain designs or solid colors.

Crop tops range in length from showing all of your stomach to almost nothing with a looser fit. They can be warn several different ways and paired with skirts, shorts, or jeans. The shorter crop tops also look really cute with high-waisted pants.

Bandos which are a fairly new trend, can also be considered a crop top. You can wear them underneath a sheer top or a loose fitting top where you can see it through the sides or on the neck line.

Here are a couple examples of what crop tops look like and what you can wear them with:

Jumpsuits and Rompers

Jumpsuits and rompers are both in style this season. A jumpsuit is a full body suit that is usually tight on the waistline with pants. This style is really cute on tall slender builds. You can wear them during the day or dress them up to go out at night with a cute pair of wedges or heels. Jumpsuits and rompers can both be worn with belts at the waist to make them look fancier or look like they are two different pieces.

Rompers are basically the same as jumpsuits but they are usually shorts. There are a lot of styles of rompers coming out this season ranging from tube tops ones to straps and and backless ones. They can be all different types of material and patterns depending on the store you go to. They also range from different prices and are affordable for everyone.

Stores like Forever 21 and Arden B are great for finding stylish rompers and they are affordable at the same time:

Motorcycle fashion

This spring there has been a new craze for men’s motorcycle fashion. For guys who want that bad boy look the biker fashion is a perfect way to get that attention. The main element in this trend in the jacket. Usually the jackets are black leather with a bunch of different zippers and pockets.

The main color in this trend is black. It’s an easy trend for guys to go along with and take part in because of the simple styles it involves. This trend can be created by a simple black v-neck and a leather jacket paired with some dark jeans and combat boots.

Girls can also get into this trend as well with sexy leather jackets and green or tan skinny army pants:

Leather jackets are huge part of this trend and this is a great example of one:

Stripes

Stripes are a really big trend this season. Even though stripes seem boring and almost too common they are actually a favorite of many people. For spring and summer, the nautical theme of clothing has become a very big trend. Navy blue and white stripes seem to be the most popular but of course all different colors can be used. Stripe dresses and shirts are cute plain but they can also be dressed up with a sassy necklace or big chunky earrings. Crop tops are commonly seen in blue and white stripes and paired cute jean shorts can be the perfect outfit.

You can find stripes in almost every store whether it be Forever 21 or Marc Jacobs, the options are endless.
