I’m keeping it cool this week and channeling my inner hippie chick!  Here are four key wardrobe essentials to help you create that perfect 70’s inspired look that’s on-trend and oh-so chic!

#1 Fringe

Fringe is a key element for creating a cool 1970’s inspired look.  It’s adds a care-free, flirty and playful vibe to an outfit.  You’ll notice that the fringe trend is carrying over from last season and continues to appear on pants, skirt, boots and jackets.  I love this suede jacket that I picked up from Winners; it’s tailored in fit and is cropped to define the waistline.  It wears well with jeans or dresses, and layers nicely over a denim jacket.

If you’re more likely to wear this trend in a subtle way, opt for fringe details in a great bag or boots.

#2 Floral Print

Incorporating a soft floral print is another great way to play up that 70’s vibe.  Whether it’s in the form of a dress or blouse, I would stick to a neutral earthy color palette in a soft “Bo-Ho” inspired print.  This blouse is a thrifted item I picked up at Value Village.  It was only $10 and one of the elements I love most about this piece is the pretty lace trim detail.

#3 Flared Denim

Flared and wide leg trouser jeans are considered a classic wardrobe staple.  This cut is very sophisticated and works for all body types.  Great for elongating the leg when worn with a great heel.  I’m so glad I invested in these 7 For All Mankind – Tailorless Ginger Bordeaux Broken Twill jeans. They are a mid-rise cut, which are extremely comfortable, and really echo that 70’s style sensibility.

#4 Brimmed Hat

A wide brimmed or floppy hat is a must-have for Fall and completes this “hippie-chic” look!  I’m slightly obsessed with my hat collection; particularly the wide brim variety.  This hat from Old Navy (last season) is available this season, with a slight style modification, AND it’s on sale!

Peace out my friends!  I’d like to extend a heart felt THANK YOU to all of our veterans and military personnel who put their lives on the line and fight for our freedom and democracy.  I feel very blessed to be living this beautiful country, Canada, that is “true north strong and free!”!  Happy Remembrance Day Weekend, Everyone.  Lest we forget! xo
