You Don't Need A Time Machine To Travel Back To 1969, Just These 3 Pieces

Large Editorial Image


August 14, 2012

It’s no secret that vintage ’60s and ’70s-inspired finds are taking the place of tired ’90s numbers (well, except for anything Saved By The Bell, of course), so when we came across photos from the 1969 issue of Life Magazine, we couldn’t stop drooling over the show-stopping florals, the classically flattering denim and the ultra-chic leather fringe. But unless you have the time to scour countless vintage hot-spots for pieces with the perfect passed-down feel, it could be hard for you to snag some ’70s-inspired additions for your closet.

After browsing through the photos (aren’t ’70s teens the ultimate purveyors of chic?!), we couldn’t wait to match up our favorite decades-old trends — florals, denim and fringe — with their updated counterparts, especially since head-to-toe flower power made a resurgence on Fall 2012 runways.

Goldsign Wide Leg Jeans ($515); Denim Vest ($88); High-Wasted Denim Shorts ($33); Oversized Edge Curl Jumpsuit ($37), High Waist Skirt ($35); NARS Eyeshadow in Outremer ($24); Tom Ford Samuele Sunglasses($450); Cheap Monday Lori Hat ($30)

Floral Print Drop Back Shirt ($64); Current Elliot Floral Print Pants ($290); Ungaro Vintage Skirt ($331); Liberty Perfect Shirt ($150); Ralph Lauren Embroidered Shoulder Bag ($98); Floral Tennis Shoe ($14.50); Jeffery Campbell Floral Rumble Boot ($145); Floral Tie-Front Chambray Tank ($34.50)

Muse Belted Fringe Dress ($88.49); Ombre Fringe Jacket ($150); High Noon Tassel Earrings ($276); Lanvin Leather Fringe Top ($224); Madewell Sandstorm Fringe Boot ($198); Nine West Icelandic Booties ($116); Ralph Lauren Crossbody ($698); Ellebj Fringe Collar Necklace ($260); Azzedine Alaia Fleuron Fringed Dress ($1,964)
