'70s Flare

Blouse: Forever 21 (sold out, similar) | Jeans: H&M (sold out, similar) | Belt: ASOS | Bag: MCM (vintage, similar) | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Watch: Daniel Wellington

The '70s are one of my favorite decades for fashion. Flare jeans, bohemian blouses, and flowy dresses were wardrobe staples for many. The look I'm wearing here is inspired by the flower power era. It reminds me of an outfit the iconic Jane Birkin would put together. I haven't worn flare jeans since skinny jeans became the denim of choice. Now I'm wondering why I ever abandoned bell bottoms?

I'm making up for lost time with this raw hem pair from H&M. The light blue wash is so '70s and they have the right amount of fading. I belted the jeans for a vintage, boho feel and tucked in my favorite paisley print peasant top from Forever 21. Ankle boots keep the bell bottoms from dragging and my vintage MCM tasseled tambourine bag completes the hippie vibe. This look is as "far out" as the hems of my flares.
