Really loving a good 70’s vibe these days - currently awaiting a recent purchase of denim flares so I can recreate this look I love. Thanks to the always fabulous @benitarobledo who regularly inspires me with not just her style but her graceful activism too.
Another great OuTfit template!
I once read that skinny jeans are basically the leggings of denim - and it’s true they lend themselves to a more casual vibe. Flares, by comparison, look elevated without any extra effort - #upstyling at it’s finest. Plus, when they’re high waisted like Benita’s, they also make your legs look like they go on for DAYS!
This is a simple outfit, but with a pair of flares and few statement blouses to rotate, you can have several outfits that are both perfectly easy and totally on trend for the rest of 2020.
Remember, using clothes you already own is the *most* sustainable option! What do you have that you can use own to create a similar outfit? If covid quarantine has impeded your search for the perfect 70’s flares and pussy bow blouse, scroll on for some gems!
Have an outfit you'd like featured & shopped secondhand first style? Follow me on Instagram so you can tag me on the look or DM it my way.
And now, on to the shopping!
Anyone else have a sweet spot for the puffy sleeves and pretty bows of blouses from the 70’s and 80’s? There’s a nearly endless inventory of these blouses available, here are a few dozen by size that you can browse on Pinterest, along with some great 70’s flares. Some good 90’s-does-70’s jeans too.
