70s INSPIRATION ~ Thread Ethic | Modest Fashion

"The 70s take the runway" according to The New York Times

So what's the draw of the 70s? Like the Times refers, you can't help but think of such fashionistas as Jackie O and Faye Dunaway. Coming off of the 60s, petticoats were lost, hemlines fell, waist lines were more natural, and the fabrics were flowing, loose and free. We think of the wrap dress Diane Von Furstenberg created (which by the way, you can see she's still making beautiful versions of the same concept today in her pre-fall line) or houses of style like Yves Saint Laurent. As we transition into fall, you'll definitely see us good girls following some of these designers' lead...  Marc By Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Valentino (looks here and here.) Above, Megan is wearing a vintage 70s dress paired with Steve Madden shoes, and bangles by Forever 21.  Below is a brown Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, followed by a fabulous Gucci red dress.

Remember, runway looks are taken as inspiration. We at Thread Ethic are lovers of lining sheer pieces, buttoning lower necklines, etc, etc. :)
