Simple 70’s Style. Hint: Just Add Suede

Savvy-Spice-70's-print-Dale-Janee

‘To me, the Seventies were very inspirational and very influential. With my whole persona as Snoop Dogg, as a person, as a rapper. I just love the Seventies style, the way all the players dressed nice, you know, kept their hair looking good, drove sharp cars and they talked real slick.’Snoop Dogg

I couldn’t agree more Snoop. Although I was just shy of living in the 70’s, I LOVE that the styles seem to cycle back every few years. Seventies prints might be bold and look like tacky sofa covers at times, but the retro swirls and wildflowers are everywhere right now! I slipped into a forgiving jersey knit dress for Thanksgiving and wanted to share my top 4 tips for Simple 70’s Style…

1. A Dress is All You Need – There’s no need to stock your closet with bell bottoms and fringe tops because all you really need is a dress in the 70’s print of your preference.

2. If it’s on the Short Side, Just Add Tights – If there’s one thing I learned living in Europe, it’s that women do not leave the house wearing dresses in cool weather without wearing tights or nylons. You never have to worry about silky smooth legs or a tan during winters in Switzerland, because you always.wear.tights.

3. Suede Heels – I bought these chunky suede heels a few years ago and wore them once. I was about to toss them in the giveaway box this Fall when the 70’s made a comeback. If you’re looking to add one 70’s look to your wardrobe, suede is very trendy right now – whether it’s a suede jacket, skirt, dress or heels.

4. You Don’t Need Feathered Hair – Sometimes you just need a little winter pick-me-up in the hair department. And with a 70’s outfit, I’m not a fan of going full Charlie’s Angels with the hair. A simple option is an understated ponytail with a retro 70’s outfit. After getting partial highlights (I highly recommend Cris at Toni & Guy in Zug, Switzerland), I had my bangs trimmed to complete my simple, slicked back ponytail.

  3. You are rocking this 70’s look girlfriend!! This is such a fun look on you. The print makes it feel fresh and fun. Love the tip on the tights. Somehow dressing in the fall is just so much easier. I’m loving the layers this season-such a comfy way to dress.
    We are getting loads of rain here in Chico today–such a wonderful change!
    Hope you are enjoying many holiday festivities!

  5. Dale I love this look on you! So pretty. I have the blouse version of this print and am crazy about it. The tights and suede shoes are so cute with this as well. I did get to live in the 70s and it was cool.. I had platforms as a 9 year old! Can you believe it? I was really into clothes though. Hope you are enjoying the season over there! Have a good weekend. xo Kim
