4 Groovy, Glam, ’70s Styles to Rock without Looking Dated

70s styles are back and looking hot. These sunglasses are just the tip of the 70s styles iceberg.

Guess who just bought a shag jacket and a pair floral-print velvet pants? That would be me. Many 1970s fashions are back in a big way. We’ve combed through some fashion sites and have found a few ’70s styles that you can rock without looking like you crawled out of a disco club.

White crop top from ModCloth, 70s styles

Bell-bottoms from Free People, 70s styles

1. Simple Bell-Bottoms and White Crop Top

Yes, you can make bell-bottoms work. The trick is to pair these wide-legged pants with a simple, petite top, and a solid-print wedge, or a simple pair of sneakers. I love this flowing crop top from ModCloth paired with these “super” bell-bottoms from Free People. Both look classically ’70s, but totally fresh.

Glam shoes, 70s styles

2. A Glam Pair of Heels

Truth: Glam was one of the most iconic ’70s styles and it should never die. You don’t need much more when you’re rocking glam-inspired heels. This pair comes from Etsy and would pair wonderfully with a velvet pair of hot pants and a black crop top. This outfit would be perfect for a hot date on a summer night. Ah, summer… I can dream, right?

Maxi dress, 70s styles

3. The Maxi Dress

Not all maxi dresses are unflattering. This dress from Free People is quite beautiful. It’s white, features a high neck, and an elegant cut out in the back. It’s lined and ready for you to wear at the first spring picnic of the year.

Fake fur vest, 70s styles

4. The Faux Fur Vest

Yes, you, too, can enjoy the fur-look without harming a cute and cuddly animal. Fur accents made many appearances in the ‘70s, and now, you can replicate that look with this upcycled fake fur vest from Thred Up. Pair with a sky blue pair of skinnies, some brown wedges, and a roomy white button-up shirt, and you’ll be ready to rock on casual Friday.

Do you have any ‘70s styles you love? I’m partial to shag, astrological pendants (seriously), and bell-bottoms.
