Many of the Spring/Summer 2015 runway shows gave a nod to the colorful and eclectic ’70s. We saw a lot of classic ’70s trends making a comeback such as button front A-line skirts, suede clothing, fringed bags, collared cropped jackets and, our favorite, the flare pants.
The easiest way to stay on point this season is to add these decade-inspired pieces to your wardrobe. Start with a pair of classic flare jeans and look up to these celebrities for some styling inspiration!
