There are plenty of beloved fashion trends we can attribute to the '70s. As the S/S 19 runways demonstrated just last month, many of them have even come back in style—think tinted sunglasses and head-to-toe suede. But there's one item in particular that the groovy decade did especially well, and that's denim. While you might be emotionally attached to your everyday skinny jeans, there's something about these styles that—despite their nods to a decade known for lava lamps and pet rocks—feel incredibly fresh and modern. From iconic bell-bottoms and flattering wide-leg jeans to head-turning embroidery, there are a few styles we're currently rushing to add to our denim rotation. In need of a wardrobe refresh? We've gathered our favorite far-out denim trends from the '70s that we're loving for 2018.
So that proves it: These old-school denim trends still hold up.
