New Wardrobe, 1974 - Part 1

You probably know that fashion for this fall has been greatly influenced by the 70s.  For the next 3 days, we're going to look at items that were considered essential for a young woman shopping for a fall wardrobe in 1974.  All of the items shown are interchangeable with each other for a myriad of looks. Use these photos as inspiration for your own 70s style this fall.

A cotton velour zip front jacket worn with wide leg wool tweed pants and a camel color ribbed wool turtleneck sweater.

Pop the same velour jacket over matching red jeans.  Add a wool bucket hat and a plaid scarf.

A leather shoulder bag is large enough to tote all your essentials.

A braided leather skinny belt is just the thing to polish the look of the pants.  Rust color suede espadrilles are worn with matching tights.

You probably have many of these pieces already in your closet.  Try mixing one or two of these items, either in true vintage or modern vintage inspired, to bring your look "back to the future"!
