THAT SEVENTIES BITCH (HOLD THE DISCO)

Between Selena Gomez’s Bad Liar video and the Farrah Fawcett capsule collection of tees at Zara, we are seriously feeling the seventies vibe right now. So we’re slipping into oversized shades and taking styling cues from the great Lauren Hutton in American Gigolo. That means colorblocking like a pro, wearing a bit of bling and opting for hair with major volume. Below, find tools of the trade to get the job done. Add “I own this” attitude and just like that, you’re hot for the summer.

Seventies style means tight jeans, bug-eyed sunglasses, a dash of leopard print, a touch of bling in the form of gold and shiny things, a low-maintenance clutch  and a breezy blouse. Seventies style means rich, confident, mix of high and low. But modern day brands help catch the fashion vibe without having to throw all the way back to polyester and uncomfortable knits. The best cheat sheet is found in American Gigolo. Sure, the film was released in 1980, but quintessential seventies style ruled the movie. The film stars a young Richard Gere and model Lauren Hutton. Lead actor Richard Gere plays a Los Angeles male escort, who mostly caters to an older female clientèle and is accused of a murder which he did not commit. The story is a little iffy, but the style is top notch — it shows how to get cool, #TBT style all while keeping the spirit firmly in 2017. Supermodel style in the seventies? It doesn’t get much cooler than that.
