Pleated Skirts

Pleats are everywhere. Have you ever seen Sarah Jessica Parker in her beautiful Halston Heritage wear? If yes, then you must know how appealing pleated skirts can be. Just let the dress accentuate your waist and any length maxi, knee length or mini would be just perfect. These dresses reflect the 70s style like no other dresses. To create the right effect just couple your dress with pumps, sandals or gladiator boots.

High-waisted flare pants

Just check out pants that combines two different styles. The top should be skin tight and the fashionably wide bottom should complement the top. You can pair them with sleeveless tanks or white shirts. Choose fuss-free shirts to maintain the balance. The best choice you can make is with simple white flares that look just perfect with jackets or edgier tops.

Sheer Maxi Dress

For this season, the sheer maxi dress is very much in. Those who wish to get the romantic look of the 70s should opt for the sheer maxi dress. It softens your look. The floor-grazing dress will grace your beauty. Each step you take would make you more confident as the dress moves with your body. Get a wind-swept hair cut to enhance the romantic look. A pair of wedges would give you the boho chic look, if that is your preference instead of a more romantic feel.
