60’S & 70’S SPUNK

I’ve decided, in honor of Fashion Month, to dedicate this week on Extraordinary to finding the best (and affordable!) pieces for this upcoming Fall based off of this Springs FF14 Runway shows and the SS15 runways this month. One of the big prevailing trends for Fall and Spring is a modern take on the 60’s & 70’s. From the feminine shapes, to the pungent colors, to the high necks mixed with short hems, I’m loving it all. Especially the mixture of yellow and tan: nothing says 70’s fox quite like it. A more modern take on the palette would be to mix this adorable ASOS yellow midi skirt with this H&M tan turtleneck for comfort and polish beyond compare, or if you’re a little timid and don’t want to dive head first in the combo go for this neutral floral Topshop skirt instead. And for my neon daredevil’s out there, mixing this Kate Spade yellow dress (less expensive style here) with this ASOS baby blue coat and belted at the natural waist will not only create a spunky look, but also a smaller waist (win!). The possibilities are really endless though: the 60’s and 70’s were all about experimenting and breaking tradition, so don’t be afraid to test the limits and have a little fun.
