The '70s Are Back, and These Are the Outfits to Prove It

In case you missed it, the fashion world is in full-on nostalgia mode right now. All the wacky and wonderful essentials of the '90s started to re-emerge in 2018 (we're talking bucket hats, chain belts, and chokers). In recent collections, designers drew inspiration from the '80s, churning out power suit pieces with sharp shoulders. And last but certainly not least, one quick peek at the fashion scene (and Instagram accounts of every girl in the know), and you'll see that it's not only the '80s and '90s that are back and bigger than ever but also the '70s (and all its groovy trends).

You're probably well-versed in both '80s and '90s dressing (these two decades have been infiltrating the fashion scene for quite a while), and as such, we decided to hone in on all the best '70s outfits. We spent some time scrolling through Instagram to find the best ensembles that look like they were plucked straight from the average stylish woman's wardrobe 40 years ago. From fun, flared jeans to sky-high platforms, these are the essentials fashion girls have been turning to piece together standout '70s outfits.
