Today at STYLEanthropy, let’s talk about the continuing 70’s trend which includes tassels and fringes, suede and Bohemian-inspired looks… I’m actually surprised the trend is continuing on to Fall/Winter 2016, as we’re seeing on the runway this fashion month. I’ve heard a lot who aren’t so keen to the trend, saying they don’t wanna look like a hippie from the 70’s. But personally, I love it. Knowing what to match it with, to make it modern, is key.
Casual and Sporty in Tassels
For this look, I completely took the 70’s trend around and played it down for a casual and sporty weekend look. I was planning to wear this SheIn tassel poncho with some skinny jeans and tall boots. But you’ve already seen something like that from me recently. So I wanna change it up a bit. Instead of going dressed up and sophisticated, I went with casual and sporty.
I recently posted about this pair of leopard sneakers. When I got this in the mail and saw the colors, I knew they matched my SheIn tassel poncho perfectly. That’s when I knew I’d go the sporty route and completed the look with rolled up army green slim cargo pants. It was a mix of fashion eras, but the colors made it all work. P.S. army green is another trend this Spring 2016!
There are many other ways to play up the 70’s trend. Keep it slick and modern when you mix tassels or fringes with some slim cigarette pants. Wear a suede skirt with a crisp button down. Layer up a shirt dress with a fringe vest. The possibilities are endless.
My color block tassels poncho has since sold out. Yes, it sold out too quick. But I’m showing you more similar options below that are perfect for this late winter and early spring weather.
