This was actually a lucky shot. I’d dashed out to catch fading light, found a good location, selected the camera angle and background, got one test shot for positioning….and then my camera battery died. 🙁
But I did like how this outfit turned out and wanted to share it, even if it’s just a wee bit “soft focus.” Let’s just pretend it was Artistic Intent, shall we?
I’ve been inspired lately by some of the 70’s looks that designers have been sending down the runways the last couple of seasons and that have filtered down to the mid-range brands. While elements of this direction like softer styles and clothing with movement appeal to me, I’m stopping short of full-on Bohemian, which still feels too costume-y. Even with this outfit I tried piling on more jewelry, going for a Lou Lou de la Falaise/Rachel Zoe effect, but just felt silly and took half of it off. Hence the Boho-lite. 🙂
Variations on flared-leg silhouettes seem to be poised to shift the dominant (skinny jean) paradigm this year, but I don’t see any single denim or pants style pushing all others aside. These are my AG bootcuts from last year. As I mentioned in the “California jeaning” post, with my short stature flared legs are another volume point that I need to manage carefully. I probably will not be attempting any very wide flares. I just can’t do the puddling-on-the-ground look either, so have worn here with a low heel.
The sweater is an asymmetrical linen/cotton tunic from Eileen Fisher. It’s available in several colors, but I went for the “denim” color as it’s such a lovely shade of blue. (I’m wearing the silk jersey tank underneath.) I love how this top drapes and fits me. This is a 3-season weight for our climate, and the color works in any season.
Are you inspired by the current 70’s fashion trend? What pieces or trends from the past would you like to see come back in style?
