Fashion Trends Spring 2015: Blast from the Past

There was one phrase that ruled runways from New York to Paris this Fashion Week Month, and it piggybacks off of spring’s decades-past vibe. “70s-inspired” could be heard and seen from every row, recap and livestream. To claim that it was straight up paisley print, vests and disco-loving dresses would be an understatement — this year and next are set to be a full-on retro revival. From the flared jeans at Frame’s polished denim presentation to Burberry’s dramatic floor-length fringe capes, the message is clear. Per fashion trends spring 2015, there’s no denying things are about to get real groovy, real quick.

Here’s what you need to know and where to snag the latest look in fashion for less.

Fashion Trends Spring 2015

Denim Watch

Tailored bell bottom jeans kicked skinnies to the curb. A good flare or a relaxed wide leg (bonus points for sailor buttons!) will get you far. Buy now, wear through fall.

Rock your Body

Sleeved or not bodysuits have  taken over the top game. Leave the crop tops to the kids and show a little skin in this more sophisticated manner.

Go-Go Moto

They don’t have to be neon or latex, but your leather boots do need to be boxy and at least knee-high to nab the nostalgic nod.
