Get Your Chic On.
Once again, this vintage look shows zero signs of going away. Instead, this season its more amped. Think less Flower Child twirling in a field, and more late night NYC at the disco.
Think Bianca Jagger.
A regular at Studio 54 (she even celebrated her 30th birthday there, riding in on a white horse), this rocker wifey became the fashion icon of 70’s disco style. Those who haven’t already turned to her for inspiration need to start doing their homework. Now.
Liquid gold replaces delicate lace. Textures are bigger (and warmer) with shag coats and sequence. Bold red lips (tips and tricks on this here) will take center stage in your makeup routine. Gold – including Rose Gold – will dominate accessories. Throw out your skinnies to make room for flares. BIG flares. And jewel tones take over while neutrals take a back seat.
I would include fur, but I HATE that shit. We at LiberataDolce.com will never support, nor endorse animal cruelty. And I would encourage you to do the same.
But lets get back to what we DO support:
Like plunging necklines. Remember Amy Adams in American Hustle? Her wardrobe in that movie was literally everything. And this is where girls packing a small bust win. Not that girls with anything over a B cant pull it off. But there is a very fine line between 70s chic and just straight up street. Fashion tape will be required, regardless of size.
We’re also very big fans of bold prints. And jewel tones. On everything. Be brave and mix them. No really- go ahead. After all, the entire point of the 70’s was to make a statement. And YOUR statement should be “I’m a fierce bitch”. Because you are.
And now for my personal favorite- the shag coat. I literally die when I look at mine, wishing for temps frosty enough to wear them again. White is a simple, no-fail way to pull it off, but I encourage you to look for ones with color/prints. I even scored one last year with jeweled shoulders. You can view it HERE.
We also believe in breaking free of fashion ruts (I’m talking about YOU skinny jeans) and breathing life into old favorites (hello flares!). And Free People is your go-to for these. Their Super Flares are so on point, you’ll want to live in them. AND their long enough to wear with a heel.
Lastly- we will ALWAYS support a red pout. While hard to pull off during the summer, I literally sleep in my MAC Russian Red during the Fall/Winter. Red lips scream glamour. Boss. Confidence.
And I already know what you’re thinking- it leaves you looking washed out. Wrong. The wrong shade of red leaves you looking washed out. So head to your nearest MAC counter and let them show you the light. Or red, in this case. As mentioned before, head over to my Beauty page (click here) for tips on the perfect application.
But above all, we believe in the ability of putting your own spin on things. Trends come and go, but who YOU are should be reflected in WHAT you wear. That, my dear, is what we call “Style”. Because Bianca didn’t become an icon by copying outfits she saw on Instagram. She became an icon by following her [fabulous] instinct and wearing what felt right to her. No stylist. No social media. And she OWNED it.
So take these tips, and put your own spin on it. Create your signature Winter look, whatever it may be. Just make sure you do it with lots of gold. And LOTS of attitude. 😉
Now go forth- and be fabulous, you sexy thing.
