New Wardrobe, 1974 - Part 3

Today, part 3 of our 3 day look at the 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 and with the items shown over the last two days for a myriad of looks. Use these photos as inspiration for your own 70s style this fall.

No wardrobe is complete without a pair or two of basic jeans.  They can be mixed with any of the tops and sweaters shown over the last two days.  Or add a short sleeved white blouse and pullover knit vest.  Another pair of espadrilles in navy finishes the look.

How about a leather belt that reverses from red to green?  Double the look for one money!

For one coat that works with everything, you can't go wrong with a classic navy pea coat.  It will take you anywhere you want to go except for the most formal of occasions.

Top off your coat with a warm fuzzy knit cap and a plaid wool scarf.

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"!
