70s Dreamin'

The Attic's amazing clothing and accessories collection isn't the only reason we should be forgiven for having an attack of Seventies deja vu. 

December 2017

A decade that’s been revitalized time and time again on the runway, 1970s fashion was courageous and inflated in a good way.  And this year's 70s influence in fashion was a treat, as usual.

Nevertheless, it seems to me that it is a very trying time for some of the designers who are trying too hard to reinvent themselves this time around, but trying to win consumer's sympathy as well.  So if something feels too manufactured and prescribed to me, I am just not buying it.  I like pulling trendy pieces from the past decades but I do like to keep it as natural and unforced as possible.

J'adore J.Crew's sheer genius! From the sublime to the meticulous, their trousers- once out of favor- are captivating again.  Long, cropped, striped and spotted, chic, gloriously high-profile trousers peppered department stores earlier this year in variations that delivered raw feminism, charm or sporty flair. 

 

Below are just few of our favorite picks:

Trousers Affair

At A Fashion Page, vivid color and balancing proportions were the focus of this photo-shoot by John Rounds; we emphasized color with playful, cropped pants, and went characteristically steamy with ultrasexy graphic top and leather jacket.  

Tennis shoes have been neglected in the past few years. Now they're not so simple or straightforward. They're more evolved, with fur trim, chunky hardware or lacing. 

Few of our favorites below:

 Top Row: ADIDAS,  Seychelles ,  Nike ,  River Island ,   Bottom Row: Dune London,  Ed Ellen Degeneres,  Aerin,  Cole Haan

Certainly, our love affair with the three-quarter-length sleeve or half sleeve lends itself to a stylish leather jacket- it's the perfect way to top off a unconventionally ladylike look. But pastel color- mint- or a graphic pants pattern provides a fresh take. At the same time, supersleek, cropped leather jacket can turn up the sex appeal of a graphic Tee or flirty top. 

It's a return to elegance.  Current runway fascination with past and lost decades is a reintroduction of a lost sophistication and an opportunity for a younger generations to enjoy classics.

Let's not forget that fashion is all about fun.  It is bringing the whimsy back to our life.
