Style Tips: How To Achieve A Groovy Vintage Aesthetic

>No need for a time machine, you can achieve your ’60s and ’70s dreams with your own closet! Achieving a vintage aesthetic isn’t difficult if you’re ready to dive right in and willing to commit. Thrifting vintage pieces is the best way to get the most unique finds, and is also a sustainable way to shop! These groovy decades offer so much style inspo, it’s no wonder these trends are coming back to life (or if you think like me, they were never dead). The era of flower power, peace and love brought female empowerment and along with it a transition from traditional style to funky self-expression. From the hippies in the ’60s to the disco rockers of the ’70s, I’ve got all the style tips you need to steal their looks.

So long skinny jeans (sorry millenials) bellbottoms are back and are just about the quickest way to tell the world that you love vintage.

Groovy Patterns

Never a dull moment when you’re dressed head to toe in colourful patterns. Who said stripes, paisley, floral and polka dots don’t go together? Certainly no one in the ’60s.

Sweater Vests

Layer up your outfit with a ’70s inspired sweater vest. Look for warm colours and jewel tones to really achieve the vibe.

Penny Lane Coat

Named after Kate Hudson’s free-spirited character in the ’70s-based film Almost Famous the Penny Lane coat is distinct with its fur collar and sleeves. Owning a Penny Lane coat will make you just about the coolest kid on the block (in my opinion at least).

Fringe

If you purchase a tassel covered piece you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say that fringe is just about the most fun thing to wear ever.

Patterned Tights

Acheive a ’60s mod look with funky tights in bright and colourful patterns. Layering with these will add a unique pop to any outfit.

Big Sunglasses

Itty bitty sunglasses that are trendy on Tik Tok might be cute but they pertain more to a Y2K vibe. Go big or go home with your sunglasses this summer, the bolder the colour the better.

Denim Jumpsuits

Halter denim jumpsuits with plunging necklines were all the rage back in the day, and we are so ready to bring them back.

Leather

You can’t be a ’70s rocker without a little leather! Don’t just stop at jackets, don yourself in leather pants, boots, shirts and bags. Rock on my friends.

Feathered Hair

The vintage aesthetic wouldn’t be complete without a mention of hairstyle. Curtain bangs have been super trendy lately but if you have lots of layers you have got to try out this fantastic Farrah Fawcett look.
