With its history dating back to the 1500s, crochet fashion styles really got groovy in the 1970s. Floral patchwork patches showed up everywhere: in pants, vests, tops, and dresses, a look that’s still modernized on catwalks today. Mix a multi-colored crochet dress with a shoulder bag in a bold solid print of red or yellow. For a more muted look, play off the laser-cut design of a cream sleeveless crochet shift dress with a straw/textile or woven leather handbag.
Did you know the first modern version of the platform shoe was designed for actress Marlene Dietrich in the 1930s? During the 1970s, platform shoes were considered the ideal pairing for a maxi skirt or flared trousers. Toss a crossbody purse over these retro looks to keep lines elongated from your shoulder to hip, or pair a pebbled leather purse with tropical silk pants. A soft bucket bag is also a great choice as the bag's slouchy design offsets the platform's sturdy heel.
Diane von Furstenberg changed the game when she modernized the wrap dress to the shape we love today. Simple and versatile, so many bag styles complement this look. Try yours with a two-toned smooth leather bag in contrasting colors.
Birthed in the 1950s and loved in the early aughts, this shorter-than-capris silhouette is back. Since the pants are short, go for a bag with rolled handles that can fit squarely above your hip. If you’re wearing stripes, complete the look with an envelope clutch in shimmering shades, perfect for an outdoor spring event.
Jewelry has embellished our wardrobes since the dawn of time. Add statement pieces to update your retro wear to bring it into the 2020s, like studded hairpins worn in multi-groupings. Or slip into a nostalgic piece, like a charm necklace or bracelet, to give your modern-day outfits a nostalgic feel.
