It’s one of the most talked about trends for late Summer and Autumn: the 70s style. Beside all the off-shoulder tops and dresses, which are rather for the passed months, I would like to introduce you to the real it-piece of the new season: the button front skirt.
You can have it in any fabric and color – from orange sude to silky black – but I went for the “traditional” version in mid-blue denim, which I found at Zara a few weeks ago and which is definitely the most 70s style alternative.
When I was thinking about who to style it I first thought of going for a whole 70s look with an off-shoulder top and flat plateau sandals. But after realizing that I don’t have any off shoulder top in my closet – because they simply don’t suit me – and my only pair of plateau sandals doesn’t look that good anymore – I’ve chosen to style this look a bit differently and try to down grade the mega trend of Autumn and show you how to wear it so we won’t be tired of this piece when the season is changing again.
To still keep the cool of the button front skirt I decided to go for a rather boyish look with a (way too) oversized blazer, which I’ve worn in this post here already (also in combination with denim 🙂 ), a simple tank top and my all time favorite slip-ons. The blazer is almost the same length as the skirt so it might look a bit strange from the backside but I actually like that because then the whole outfit has a very compact style, which adds additional coolness. Moreover it underlines the boldness of a button front skirt just perfectly for a modern version of the 70s style – but without getting bored of too much style-revival-drama.
As you probably just realized, I just love the new skirt trend and definitely won’t give it up when it is long gone from the glossy magazine pages, even though I have got the feeling that the button front skirt trend will be with us for a very long time. It’s too cool to die easily!
What do you think? Yay “70s forever” or should this trend sink into obscurity again (and never come back again)?
