70s fashion is back. Celebrities and fashion influencers are adding a '70s retro touch to their wardrobes recently. With summer being known as a season of bright colors and patterns, the timing couldn't have been more perfect.
The 1970s were known for being vibrant and bold, especially when it comes to patterns. Since skinny jeans have taken a backseat, the flowy and flared fits found in '70s fashion are becoming a go-to for most trendsetters.

70s fashion: Fringe Jackets
Miley Cyrus stepped out in a fringed jacket that would make for the ultimate statement piece. Fringe was popular in the '70s and covered everything from jackets, pants, shirts, and in some cases, even shoes. The options are endless and the best part? It's the perfect excuse for a photoshoot since the fringe pieces move with you. Wear the jacket with a basic T-shirt or if you're after something a little more daring, team it with one of the best bralettes.

With 24 million followers, Chiara Ferragni has quickly made a name for herself as a trend expert. In this post though, she makes it clear that the 1970s are relevant even in 2021.
The front knotted top was one of the most common looks sported during that era and was typically paired with corduroy bottoms or flared jeans. To make her look more 2021 appropriate, Chiara chose a retro-inspired print paired with pleated trousers and a matching belt. The overall look reads as well put-together when teamed with a crisp pair of trousers.
Olivia Rodrigo has been sporting a lot of '90s fashion, but recently showed off a more retro-inspired outfit back when she was rehearsing for her debut SNL appearance.
Olivia showed off this handmade look featuring an electric green and black pattern made from a crocheted material. More stars and fashion influencers have been following this trend whether it's through a crocheted halter top to even complete pants made from the material.
