Zara recently released their fall womanswear campaign, and it was all bellbottoms, suede jackets, cropped jeans, and fur in rich fall shades. Not everyone is on board. And if I’m being real with you, even if I have been on board in the past, I’m not sure if I’m down with being inundated by all of this print-heavy, flowy clothing. Perhaps it’s because of the changing ways in which we consume fashion and trends, but with each passing season it feels like trends are becoming less and less diverse. Instead of labels sticking with trends that reflect their brand, every label, especially in the fast fashion world, are just going for the same thing. This makes shopping an extremely dull experience, and causes fashion-savvy consumers like myself to grow tired of trends much much faster. Of course there are things I will always love about 70s style, like the cozy long jackets, vibrant hues, and copious amounts of suede. (I hate the printed dresses) But when a trend is this reminiscent of pieces you can find at literally any vintage store in your city, I fail to see the appeal in purchasing it brand new and made with lower quality fabrics.

What do you think about 70s style?
