A little bit edgy // 3 ways to add a 70's vibe to your style!

My go to style is usually soft and feminine but lately I've been all over the 70's vibe.  Fashion is all about embracing how you feel in the moment and today's outfit brings out my edgy side.  I've been wanting to purchase a lace-up body suit for a while and this one from H&M is perfect!  Some of the bodysuits I've seen recently have lace-ups that go nearly to your belly button, but I'm a believer in keeping a little mystery when it comes to your wardrobe.  This one is perfectly edgy without being scandalous!

Although it's summer, it's been a a little chilly here in Winnipeg.  Since this body suit is sleeveless, I layered a slim black cardigan over top of it, then tucked it into my skirt to keep the look sleek and modern.  The skirt is a vintage piece I found in my mom's closet years ago.  Sadly she purged most of her vintage pieces before I got my hands on them (goodbye vintage polka dot bikini!) but I'm glad she was able to pass down this classic skirt!

3 ways to add a 70's vibe to your wardrobe:


1. Work it in suede:

Suede pieces are a staple of 70's fashion and whether real or faux, working suede to your outfit adds great texture.  Bonus points for adding fringe!



2. Add some height with platforms:

Platforms have a great retro feel with the added bonus of giving you a little extra height.  Perfect if you are petite like me!  Just make sure to keep the look classy & modern by sticking with natural textures (think leather or linen) and staying away from platforms with a lucite heel.



3. Try a jumpsuit.

This 70's trend is easy to dress up or down!  Lately, I've been seeing some absolutely gorgeous jumpsuits with everything from lace detailing to amazing cutouts.  (I'm in love with this one from Urban Outfitters!)
