Trying a Trend. Start in the Closet.

Try a look off the latest fashion pages by pairing things from your closet differently.  Use accessories to pull the look together.  Most trends die off after a season or two so look for bargain options when you are taking a trend for test drive.  

Looks from the 1970’s are a popular choice right now, this makes me very happy as it is a personal fave of mine.  It’s also easy to style.  Avoid the costume effect by borrowing from the vintage look and balancing it with the modern wear.  Even just adding a couple key accessories to a solid tee and jeans can capture the look.  

Here is a simply styled 70’s look pulled from my closet.

Bracelet's .50 - from different bangle sets picked up at random yard sale's all less then 50 cents
Shades $6 - grabbed 2 years ago on the beach in MD
Earrings .75 - clearance priced in the mall before feathers were popular
Jeans $5 and Tee $1 - picked up at the Salvation Army Thrift Store on separate occasions

If you are on the hunt look out for these classics from the 1970's era.  Layers, feathers, faux fur, eyelets, wide leg pants, bangles and long necklaces.  Think outside the box and enjoy styling!

I shared "what I wore" on Little Miss Mama's link up.
