2011 Spring Trends: 1970s – Accessories

2011 trend header

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.
