Trend Spotlight with Rachel Bilson, Style Director
The '70s were so very out there - big hair, plunging necklines, amazing dance moves. So it's no wonder designers are currently obsessing over it. And, let's be clear, I think everybody needs a little '70s in their fashion repertoire. Especially when it's glam times ten. This time around, the '70s flashback isn't about the relaxed and casual vibe of boho. It's much more sophisticated, decadent and very glamorous.
'70s glam was all over recent runway shows. We saw long billowing dresses in beautiful jewel tones of amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby, garnet and citrine - I love this color palette. Gorgeous one-shouldered maxi dresses with lots of pleats. And halter dresses with thigh-high slits.
I've been getting inspiration for this trend, not only from the catwalks, but also by researching photos from Studio 54's heyday. Wow! They sure knew how to have a good time. And the fashion was supreme - the epitome of '70s glam. Bianca Jagger had immaculate dress sense. She embodied the '70s in off-the-shoulder dresses and convention breaking pantsuits.
Gradient lenses are perfect for bringing '70s glam to life. You can get them in different hues too - from brown to purple. And the bigger, the better. The limited-edition Versace Medusa frames, accented with Mother-of-Pearl, are favorites of mine at the moment. And I love the '70s shapes Vogue Eyewear has too.
There's no doubt about it. I’m going to be wearing '70s glam on the red carpet and for any glamorous events I have coming up over the holidays - you should too.
I hope you guys have a very safe, stylish and happy holiday.
