Women’s Trend Report: ‘70s Style Meets Modern Day
Trunk Club

Arguably one of the most stylish decades of all time, the 1970s served us major fashion moments that still influence our sartorial choices to this day. Drawing inspiration from the era’s eclectic range of styles, we’re highlighting some of our favorite ‘70s trends and how they can be reworked to seamlessly fit into our modern day wardrobes.

Women’s boho maxi dresses

Boho maxi dresses

Why we love it:

There’s something so effortless and elegant about donning an ankle-grazing maxi dress with a relaxed, billowing silhouette. It’s flattering, feminine, and perfectly captures the easy-going vibe of the ‘70s.

How to wear it:

Add a cropped jacket and espadrilles for the daytime. For an edgy take, try a belt bag and heeled wedges.

Vivid prints

Why we love it:

What better way to express your fashion sense than with striking colors and eye-catching prints? We’re looking to unique and colorful designs to amp up our everyday looks.

How to wear it:

For a chic take, keep your outfit subtle and incorporate a stand-out bag or go all out with bold colors and contrasting patterns from head to toe for a statement-making look.

Vintage-inspired accessories

Why we love it: 

No matter how good an outfit is, it’s just incomplete without the proper accessories. The right pieces can complement a look or serve as the star of the show—it really is up to you.

How to wear it:

Don’t be shy. Simply embrace all the fabulous colors and retro prints by working them into your classic essentials. Earrings, sunglasses, and headbands are all easy ways to try the trend without making a serious commitment.

Dramatic asymmetry

Why we love it:

Life isn’t perfect, and our hemlines shouldn’t have to be, either. The deliberate mismatched silhouette adds a beautiful, fashion-forward finish to any piece.

How to wear it:

From high-low dresses to jagged edges, this trend can be worn in the form of dresses, jeans, blouses, or skirts. The best part is that it can be worn to work, weekend, or anything in between.

Crochet and lace detailing

Why we love it:

These textured elements speak volumes without being too in-your-face. Plus, crochet and lace are extremely versatile—go the artsy, edgy, or hippie-chic route depending on what you’re feeling for the day.

How to wear it:

For an of-the-moment feel, opt for a lace-detailed blouse in a solid color or a bright crochet bag to elevate your outfit.
