2011 Spring Trends: 1970s – Accessories

In our last installment in our series on The 1970s Trend for 2011 we’re taking a closer look at the details – accessories! Whether you’re adding this trend into your look slowly, or going all out head-to-toe, you can have fun adding these finishing touches to your style.The popular 1970′s accessories were the silk scarf tied around the neck, platform shoes, gold watches, and gold jewelry. Some women would even go as far as to wear ostrich-feather boas draped over their shoulders or turbans on their heads. The 70′s fashion icon Bianca Jagger would use an ebony walking stick as an accessory along with peacock-feathers in her cloche hats, green sequined shoes, and an ivory cigarette-holder. So, as you can guess, it was not a conservative time period for accessories. It was a time to make a statement.My personal favorites that I will be wearing to add a touch of 70′s to my outfits will be the wide brim hat and the chunky, natural necklaces.  Both are perfect to pair with one of my go-to spring outfits – my maxi dress.70s Accessories – HatsASOS- Wide Brim Fedora HatASOS- Cararzi Felt Floppy HatASOS- 70′s Floppy Felt HatASOS- Catarzi Felt Floppy Hat70s Accessories – SunglassesShopbop- Marc by Marc Jacobs Oversized SunglassesShopbop- Matthew Williamson Square SunglassesShopbop- Oliver Peoples Donyale SunglassesZappos- Betsey Johnson BJ 277Zappos- Rocawear R396Zappos- Betsey Johnson BJ 197Zappos- Electric Eyewear HightoneZappos- Chloe CL211970s Accessories – JewelryStyle 369- Gold Engraved CuffStyle 369- Wing Clamp BraceletStyle 369- Filigree Chandelier EarringsStyle 369- Feather EarringsStyle 369- Leaf CuffShopbop- Gorjana Star Wrap NecklaceShopbop- Antik Batik Jazou NecklaceShopbop- Kenneth Jay Lane Turqouise Stick NecklaceShopbop- Vanessa Mooney Foxy Coconut NecklaceShopbop- Antik Batik Engy NecklacePiperlime- Juicy Couture Fringe Hoop EaringPiperlime- Hive & Honey Turquoise Bead Jersey NecklaceShopbop- Bluma Project Neema NecklaceZappos- Juicy Couture Wanderlust Hoop EarringShopbop- Sachin & Babi Milano Pyrite EarringsShopbop- Jules Smith Viva Glam EarringsShopbop- Gara Danielle Blue Turquoise Earrings70s Accessories – BagsStyle 369- Rust Charm Satchel BagStyle 369- Zandra Rhodes Embroidered ClutchShopbop- Motif 56 Suede Rock BagShopbop- Tory Burch Small Wicker Basket BagShopbop- Dannijo Moroccan Messenger BagPiperlime- Melie Bianco LeahPiperlime- Lucky Brand on the FringePiperlime- Cole Haan KendraShopbop- Matt & Nat HendrixPiperlime- Alternative The PeteyPiperlime- SR Squared by Sondra Roberts AnimalPiperlime- Cynthia Vincent Classic PouchPiperlime- 7 Chi AndyAmazon- Melie Bianco Miley70s Accessories – ShoesStyle 369- Black Clog Ankle BootsStyle 369- Rocket Dog Suede Clog ShoesPiperlime- Miss Me Faris 3Piperlime- DV by Dolce Vita NylePiperlime- Gomax Jaqueline 04Piperlime- Charles David GiaPiperlime- Madison Harding MagnoliaPiperlime- Juicy Couture DragonPiperlime- Pierre Dumas Carina 1Piperlime- Enzo Angiolini XaiviPiperlime- Clarks Welfleet TbarShopbop- Joe’s Jeans Bliss Platform Wedge SandalsShopbop- Dolce Vita Jollen Suede Wedge EspadrillesShopbop- Jean Michel Cazabat Ashanti Platform EspadrillesAmazon- Steven by Steve Madden Grifin Peep- Toe PumpShopbop- See by Chloe Closed Toe Wedge SandalShopbop- Giuseppe Zanotti Mirror Cuff SandalsShopbop- Ash Drew High Heel SandalsShopbop- Modern Vintage Shoes Lucy T Strap Wedge SandalsShopbop- Belle by Sigerson Morrison Braided T Strap SandalsIn our 70′s Series we’ll break down each of the 6 Key Area’s we describe above in more detail, show you how to shop it for your shape and bring you our favorite items to shop in stores now.
