With fashion week season not even half way through, we are already seeing a major trend that is sure to show up in the wardrobe arsenal of the fashion savvy this spring – retro 70s glam. Platform shoes, circle sunnies and fringed accessories are back, and they brought their apparel counterparts with them. Here is a breakdown of the colors, styles and fabrics from the 70s that are going to make a seriously groovy comeback this spring.

Rusty HuesRusty Hues

The rust-orange color was a pivotal 70s hue. It’s been lighting up the runways in everything from rust orange microsuede jackets like this Jill Stuart number, rust red stretch corduroy bottoms, rust orange jersey knit tops, rust suiting separates, and textured rust/brown jacketing.

maxi dressMaxi dresses

Maxi dresses have been trending for a while now, but for this spring they have a retro-glam twist. Rebecca Minkoff showed whimsical, printed chiffon maxis and other designers displayed chevron striped versions in chevron chiffon and chevron jersey knit.

Paisley PrintPaisley Print

Paisley, a universal favorite print that was ever popular in the 70s, has been a front lining pattern in this year’s spring collections – particularly in earthy tones. Paisley chiffon has been shown in flowing, hippie-inspired dresses and paisley jacquard has seen a revival in knee-length, fur collared overcoats.

Bell BottomsBell Bottoms

High-waisted, tummy cinching, flared denim jeans are combatting the current skinny jean obsession – paired with tucked cotton tees and long locks of hair. Unlike the late 90s revival, these are more of an exaggerated flare, rather than an overly extreme, full-fledged bell bottom.

Bow BlousesBow Blouses

Multiple designers are reviving the power-suiting predecessor bow blouse this spring. Chloe showed long sleeved, silk versions paired with wide-legged trousers and Salvatore Ferragamo used silk georgette in saturated shades of taupe.
