This spring, the 1970s will be a huge trend, but not kitschy, disco or , gasp, double knit poly leisure suits. Instead luxury, glamour and femininity will be the vintage look of choice. Basically, good 70s.

And as a bit of fashion history, the 1970s looks were really a revival of the 1930s. When there are parallels in the economy and society, it always reflects on fashion.

Some of the key details of the 1930s that we see again in the 1970s are:

  • satin
  • ruffles
  • feminine colors
  • bias cuts

1970s striped sheer dress


The film Water for Elephants will definitely help continue the love affair with all things slinky and 1930s by way of 1970s. It’s much easier to find great looks from the 1970s that give a nod to the 30s.
