The Hot List: The ‘70s Trend

0430_70sTrend

The recent resurgence of jumpsuits made it clear that 2015 fashion was about to wax nostalgic. This season, the ‘70s sartorial love fest is officially upon us! And it looks amazing. Make your retro return with these key items. For tops, think feminine silhouettes with soft movement, like that of our long bell sleeved blouse or off-the-shoulder ruffle top. They’re perfect with cutoffs. Flare jeans, a ‘70s staple, find their sole-mate in wedge heels that won’t get lost under the fabric. Make ‘em red because this decade was all about color! To accessorize, go for anything with turquoise or feathers, like our pendant necklace decked subtly in both. For a finishing touch, add super cute sunnies with heart-shaped frames (so Farrah Fawcett!). What’s extra groovy? These are pieces that can transcend the trend and rotate into your wardrobe for a long time; not that we’re against crushed velvet, disco balls and macramé.

It’s Maritime

Our Stylist Loves: Sailor Shorts

Sailor-style bottoms, a menswear inspired summer classic, are still doing great things for a girl’s look. In shorts form, with a high-waist cut that elongates your body and highlights its narrowest point, this retro-flavored style can make you feel all classic pin-up. To bring together the best of old and new, try a blousy button-down tucked in and some fun T-straps. Get as nautical as you wanna be with a striped tee or go beachy with a bikini top and espadrilles. However you style them, keep things flattering with a fit that’s close to the body – but not too close.

The World is Your Runway: Teen Vogue Fashion University

Spring Style Ambassadors

Last month, Teen Vogue Fashion University gave us a chance to connect with a handful of as- piring fashion bloggers from around the U.S. and see their styling ideas for our clothes over the weekend-long event. Things went way too well to stop there, so these style ambassadors will be sharing their tips for how to wear Express for work and play all summer long. Keep checking back here to see the debut of their blog-worthy looks.

Emma Walker @emmawlker

  • Hometown: Denver, CO
  • Personal Style: “I take trendy pieces and use them in a classic way.”
  • First Fashion Memory: “Watching the opening scene of Sex and the City when I was in 6th grade and begging my mom to let me buy a tutu!”

Deanna Sylvester @de_sylvester

  • Debuting: May 4
  • Hometown: Munster, IN
  • Personal Style: “Minimal and trendy, while still being comfortable.”
  • First Fashion Memory: “Watching any show (Soul Train was the best for fashion) or celebrities on TV and drawing their outfits. I would call it the ‘fashion game’ and force my sisters to play with me to see who drew the better outfit.”
  • Trend She Loves: “Definitely fringe! I’ve always been in love with ‘70s fashion and it is a major comeback this year.”

Tamara Kraus @tamararkraus

Cassy Stone @poshandcirc

  • Debuting: May 11
  • Hometown: Paramus, NJ
  • Personal Style: “I don’t like to look too put together, even if a lot of meticulousness went into styling my outfit. There’s something intriguing about being able to look amazing while making it look easy.”
  • Motivational Jam: “‘My Type’ by Saint Motel always gets me groovin’.”
  • Style Icon: “Karlie Kloss. I’m starting to find that my everyday wear really emulates her model-off-duty style.”

Caitlyn Mahaffey @stylebycm

  • Debuting: May 11
  • Hometown: San Francisco, CA
  • Personal Style: “Unexpected and comfy with an edge. I love sporty style.”
  • Trend She Loves: “I am obsessed with the sneakers with dresses and skirts trend. It’s fun to incorporate sporty with girly.”
  • Motivational Jam: “‘Sirens’ by Pearl Jam. It takes me back to a difficult time in my life and reminds me how far I’ve come, and that I can do anything.”

AS SEEN ON: STYLE BLOGGER VIVA LUXURY

Desert Fest FTW with style blogger Anabelle Fleur

Take a tip from music fest fan and Viva Luxury blogger Annabelle Fleur: You can’t discount climate when considering what to pack for a festival trip. As she confesses, “Studded fringed leather pants sound good in theory yet in reality, stretchy leather and blazing desert heat don’t mix very well (and yes, I did actually make this mistake).” Points to her for going lighter this time around with our destroyed cutoffs and barely-there off-the-shoulder blouse. The bottlecap belt is a fun complement for her boho silver jewelry and as she notes, this crave-worthy beaded hat is great for keeping hair from drying out under the scorching sun.
