Diversity Chic: Boogie Oogie Oogie to the 70s!

Saving the best for the absolute last day of August for you beautiful people! Another installment of Diversity Chic is here and after much consideration of your lovely votes, we decided to revisit another decade….the flashy, disco loving 70s! 

After watching The Get Down on Netflix, I was more than excited to jump right into this fun trend with my stylish ladies. Before we go any further, let’s visit the details for anyone new around here:

Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style. Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.

We all showed up in our respective outfits and the power couple of Stephanie and Holden got to sit this one out with photographing. This go around we were lucky enough to have one of Stephanie’s coworkers, Amanda, come out and shoot this Diversity Chic. She is establishing herself as a prominent photographer for Dallas and stepped into the challenge of group and individual shots for all 4 of us. Many thanks to Amanda Stevens Photo for taking our fantastic pictures! You did a phenomenal job and I cannot wait to work with you again. Dallas if you are in search of a photographer, check her out!

Without further, let’s talk about the outfit and trend!

About the Outfit

The 70s can best be described as funky and pretty psychedelic in music, slang, and most importantly style! When dressing for this decade, I didn’t want to come off too costumey and feel like I was getting ready for Halloween. I wanted to really implement a casual look that I could easily take out and about with friends. My July Popsugar Must Have Box came with this fabulous Michael Stars Porcelain Skinny Scarf that I knew I had to incorporate into this look for a classy adult edge.

This set the base of keeping my outfit as simple as possible to not take away from this scarf, so I opted for a skinny light wash jean and black v-neck shirt. Paired with boot wedges and the stylish BP. faux leather drawstring tote, I am ready to tackle happy hour and much more.

About the Trend

You’ve seen the essence of the 70s slowly making its appearance each and every year. A new variation or even just a resurgence of a classic makes itself known to the younger generation from being immersed with a reminder that some things just never go out of style. I knew this trend was going to be perfect the moment I was browsing around and came across the most glorious pair of flair jeans I’ve seen in ages. My heart skipped a beat and I couldn’t contain my excitement that the decade I always wished I grew up in was quickly becoming a fashion reality! Needless to say, I purchased those jeans and do have plenty of plans to wear them this fall with all kinds of cute turtle necks and chunky scarves. With the Texas heat I opted away from styling my flairs, so I kept it cool and pulled the skinny scarf out for a retro and stylish look.

What 70s trends would you like to see make a comeback? What trends would you like to just stay in the 70s? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to visit the other DY-NO-MITE looks for this month’s Diversity Chic.
