Looks and styles are continuously recycled throughout the years, and thankfully for usthe ’70s are back! Those of us who didn’t get to live as hippies in the ’70s can live vicariously through the fashions of that time. One retro look that is being seen everywhere right now is the bright floral trend.
Diane von Furstenberg‘s Spring 09 look, which she named “Rock Goddess,” featured long and short flowy florals, along with some pretty tricked-out headbands. And florals can be found everywhere; not just on the runways of New York. It is easy to replicate these looks on a tight budget. I was able to find dresses of all shapes and sizes that won’t break the bank at Forever 21, Old Navy, JCPenneyand Urban Outfitters.
All outfits cost under $70, so feel free to buy more than one. Some great accessories to pair with these looks are hippie headbands and neutral sandals. Or, if you’re more interested in rocking some authentic ‘70s vintage fashions, check out my post on the Top 3 vintage stores in St. Louis.
