Dress For Less: Spring Trends Part 2



  Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Here comes Part 2 of my Spring Trends Dress for Less series! Like I said in the first part, I'm going to pick a few of the key trends for Spring 2011 and show you how you can get those looks for less in a series of posts!  For this post I chose the Seventies. Next up is Girly.  If you guys like this you can suggest more spring trends for me to do! :)

Seventies: The easiest way to get the 70s look is to grab a pair of super wide legged jeans and add a pretty top tucked in to them like Derek Lam or Elie Tahari.  Some clogs wouldn't hurt either.  You can also go for the Brady Bunch look a la Rodarte's collection. Or wear a 70s like dress as seen in Marc Jacobs' collections.
Rather than doing a full look for this trend I decided to pick some pieces you can incorporate into your wardrobe because wearing all 70s stuff could look a bit time-warpy. ;) The green skirt isn't exactly cheap, but I really liked it so I included it anyway, ha ha.

  4. I like the jeans a lot. I know GAP has their similar 70s-esque pairs...I'm not sure which I'll be getting, but I know I better get my hands on some bell bottom-y trousers, and quick.

  9. Love the wide legged high waisted pants, I bought some a few years ago and just gave them away. Think they were too tight in the thighs to be flattering, maybe the key is to have them slightly loose in thighs. The Rodarte outfit is so cool.
