1976 was a pretty righteous year for fashion. We can say that with complete confidence because every outfit spotted on our favorite bloggers and the most recent runways can easily be traced back to the Dazed and Confused costume closet. Watch that movie On Demand and you’ll have inspiration galore for your next OOTD. All the same trends we’re crazy about today are featured: A-line denim skirts, peasant and off-the-shoulder tops, overalls, high-waist denim, wide-leg denim, flared denim, baseball tees, choker necklaces, Nike sneakers, suede jackets, fuzzy coats, and more denim in the form of denim on denim. (Yeah, the ‘70s were a great decade for all-American denim.)
Of course the trends du jour nearly four decades ago demand to be updated to have a place on our world today. The skirts of 2015 are shorter, the peasant blouses drape off the shoulder, and the overalls have become Taylor-ed (tailored, as seen on Taylor Swift). Some things never change, however, like the appeal of fresh-faced barely there makeup and the good vibes you get when “Slow Ride” comes on the radio (or Spotify, excuse us).
