Mary Tyler Moore Inspired Fashion
Since I've been watching back-to-back episodes of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, I've been feeling the vintage inspiration everywhere I look. If you crave fun color and pattern, then the '70s are a fantastic decade from which to pull your inspiration. Craving '70s style? Here are some modern solutions.
Red and Orange Tones: Bright colors are an easy way to work bold '70s style into your wardrobe, from bright pops of color on your most elegant tunic to a silk scarf. Toss any bright color on with fun denim and a pair of gladiator sandals for a great MTM-inspired look.Where to Find: Get your bright tops on a discount from Victoria's Secret and ModCloth.
Maxi Dresses: Maxis are an excellent buy if you happen to have heavy calves or larger ankles, and they haven't been out of style altogether since the '70s. Patterned dresses look best when they are in a medium-size print, because that flatters nearly every body type.
Where to Find: Pick up a maxi dress from a clearance or sale section on a site like JCPenney or GAP.
Wide-Legged Denim: Grab a pair of wide-legged denim to pair with anything-- scoop-neck tank tops, t-shirts, and mock-neck tops. Platform shoes and wedges add tones of height with these trousers, but be sure that your feet stay visible when combined with chunky shoes. Jute or cork soles are up to you!
Where to Find: Get your wide-legged denim at Old Navy, where prices are right, and the fit is, too.
Cool Sweatshirts: Why do we just have sleek hoodies to hang around in? Instead of zipping on a boring sweatshirt, why not go retro and pull on a classic one that features a crew neck and an fun logo on it? It's your chance to dress down like your pals in the '70s would have!
Where to Find: Head on over to eBay to get the real deal.
