Classic 70’s Summer Fashion For Petite Women

By on August 7, 2012

Summer of Love

This season, it’s all about peace, love and bell-bottoms. Can ya dig it? Yes, the 70’s are back and it’s time to mellow out with some of history’s favorite trends, revisited with fashionable petite women. Free to subscribe to Bella Petite!

Being inspired by a time period can be great when done right but disastrous when done wrong. To avoid looking like you’re headed to a costume party, don’t wear all the trends at once. Save that for Halloween! Instead, mix and match your 70’s-inspired pieces with modern elements for a chic retro ensemble.

Ready for a flashback? Let’s take a look at some outfits inspired by petite models 5’4″ Twiggy, 5’2″ Cheryl Ladd to 5’3″ Devon Aoki and everyone’s favorite groovy time period.

Style 1: Easy Accessories

If you’re not ready to dive head first into the 70s trend, try taking a dip with accessories instead. Flower crowns are a pretty and feminine way to accessorize an outfit as you see on petite celebrity 5’0″ Vanessa Hudgens.  Make sure to pair it with something simple like jeans and a tee.

Floppy hats and round sunglasses are another great way to add easy 70’s vibes that are especially flattering on your petite frame. Just throw them on as you’re headed out and it’s an instant head turner (in good way!).  Stylishly petite Hudgens shows you how to rock your petite fashion style!

Style 2: Wide Leg, Big Heel

What’s the first clothing item you think of when you remember the 70s? Yep, bell-bottoms.

To keep it modern, look for a wide leg jean in a light wash. Make sure not to go too wide, as a big flare will swallow a petite figure. Pair with a chunky, wooden heel for height and a printed top for some groovy flair.

Easy, right? Petite celebrity 5’2″ Rachel Bilson does it with ease, just follow her lead petite ladies and you’ll look great!

Style 3: 70s Color Wheel

There are so many ways to dress yourself in 70’s inpsired styles that it can be easy to forget the basics of any outfit flashback.

The colors. Classic 70’s colors are distinct shades of yellow, green, orange and red. So, use these hues as inspiration for a night on the town! Free to subscribe to Bella Petite!

A v-neck dress knit dress that hits a little above the knee will give you height. This coupled with some shiny earrings and fun clogs, all dip-dyed in 70’s shades, will have everyone around you double checking their calendars!

Now that you’ve had a blast from the past, what do you think? Are you going to be trying out some of 70’s-inspired outfits of your own? What looks from the 70’s do you love?
