The first step to looking good is knowing all the essentials that make up this trend.
Update your flared pants
If there’s one retro trend we’re all familiar with, it has to be the ’70s flare craze. Recently spotted on some of our favorite stylish celebrities, Rachel Zoe and Katie Holmes, for example, this look is on. Back and better than ever for fall, but with a stylish new update. To get the look, try a slimming style with a dark wash like these Bianca LADK Mid-Rise Flare Bottom Jeans, $ 178, from Seven For All Mankind. Exposed buttons and welt pockets help add a modern twist to this retro classic.
Get inspired by vintage
From thrift stores to nostalgic ’80s online boutiques, one of the easiest ways to go retro this season is with radical vintage-inspired accessories. We’re excited about this “ready-to-wear” 14k gold-plated retro handmade ring, $ 96, from Los Angeles-based designer Miss Wax. Inspired by the decade’s 80s art deco and neon palette, Miss Wax caught our eye.
Go old school
Who doesn’t love a good retro t-shirt? We know we do! Especially if it is made from a soft knit jersey and is one size fits all. X marks the spot in this unisex crossbones t-shirt, $ 89, in heather gray from Wildfox’s Peeps. To add this look to your fall wardrobe and keep things modern, pair your retro tee with feminine J. Crew trousers or cheer it up with $ 168 skinny jeans from Current / Elliott.
Channel 50’s Feminine
An iconic print from the ’50s, polka dots have reared their cute little heads again and are popping up everywhere for fall. To channel this trend in an updated way, slip into a cute strapless polka dot dress like this retro from Olivia, $ 190, from Lauren Conrad.
