We all know trends repeat themselves in some way or another. Yet, I was surprised when the few outlets pointing to 70's trends reemerging became many.
Whether or not you are ready for this trend, I want to offer you some options that may inspire you to give the updated 70's look a try, or at least how to incorporate some pieces into your everyday look.
Investment in a Statement Piece
One of my favorite ways to freshen up your current wardrobe is to just add a few in-season pieces that can be paired with classic items you already own.
Take a look at this cape from Net-A-Porter. It would go well with skinny jeans and a long sleeve Adea Layering Top, both of which you may already have in your wardrobe.
Look in Your Closet
There are times you have pieces that will work for the trend of the season. Although you may not have purchased them for that particular trend or even that particular season, when paired with other pieces in a new way, you may find yourself rocking the trend of the moment- the 70's.
If you have oversized sunglasses, try wearing them with a pair of high-waisted pants, a silk scarf tied around your neck or anything suede.

Interpret Your Own Take
The runway allows for interpretation, so pull from the looks you love and discard the ones you don't.
Enjoy these looks from Louis Vuitton and Gucci's spring 2015 ready-to-wear runway shows.

P.S. Did you notice how you could pair an Adea Layering Top under the blazer in the Louis Vuitton runway picture?

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
