Subtle 70’s

Every season we see a specific decade reinvented over the runways, and this Spring it’s all about Subtle 70’s – bringing back light variations of bright color combinations,Β wide and flared pant legs, and retro shapes. What better time to wear this revitalized bohemianΒ style than Spring and Easter? I hope you enjoyed the holiday with family and beautiful weather!

PS – I have lavender hair now. ;p

What hippie vibe trends are you liking for Spring?

What I wore:

Pants – Palazzo Pants similar here

Top – Black Tank

Bag – Steve Madden Mint Crossover

Spring Trend – Flaming Lips

Mix it up this Spring and get some inspiration from the flaming lip shades we saw all over the Spring runway shows from designers like Carolina Herrera and Dolce & Gabbana. Orchid purple, neon orange, pepto pink, matte lilac, and neon fuchsia are just some of the bold brights trending. I pulled together my favorite matte colors from NYX.Β Will you try this bold look?
