Sometimes I really feel that I was born in the wrong decade, or at the very least, I was Farrah Fawcett’s friend in a past life. Wearing updated ’70s pieces with a middle part and round sunglasses just feels right. I’ve picked up so many styles, like this ’70s bell sleeve dress, this season that I think this vibe might turn into a classic look for my closet. Maybe it’s the oversaturated festival fashion that’s wearing off on me, but I’ve really come to love the wide-leg silhouettes, anything with fringe, and bohemian dresses. And headpieces, lots and lots of headpieces.
Of course, not all of the looks mentioned above may be suitable for your everyday wardrobe, but one piece that I found to be versatile enough to take you from work to dinner and then a picnic the next day is the bell sleeve dress. I picked up this color blocked version with a tie waist from H&M a few months ago and it is so comfortable. I will admit that after I bought it, I let it sit in my closet for a bit because I was a little intimidated to wear it. When I was running late for work one morning, I decided to just throw it on and with flats and go. It is no my go-to dress for everything and because of the color palette I’ll be wearing this frock all the way through fall. If you’d rather not look like you just stepped out of a time machine like I do, I recommend trying a dress in solid color with wide, swingy sleeves rather than bell sleeves, and accesorize with minimalistic jewelry.
What do you think of my bell sleeve dress? Are you into the summer ’70s trend?
