That 70’s Girl

Guys… I own ONE pair of flare jeans. I hardly ever wear them because I had to face the cold hard truth that my body type (boyish – they so need to find a better term) doesn’t prosper in this jean type. However it’s Friday, I have my big 70’s Diana Ross/ Rick James hair and I thought: “go for it Jai… Period dress…serve 70’s chic!”

And serve I did.
When you have a straight frame (little to no hips) you have to make sure your outfit is proportioned correctly. I paired my jeans with a blousey black tee, and sky high wicker platform sandals.

Tee – H&M
Jeans – The Gap long & lean flares (thrifted)
Shoes – Asos platform (won in a contest – free)

Those platforms are so high that I’m 6 feet tall in them. The whole outfit was a fun, not over the top, chic way to wear 70’s inspired clothes. If you do like to period dress, make sure to keep it is as clean and classic as possible to avoid looking costume-y!!
As always,
Shop wisely!
