I’ve been obsessed (to say the least) with 70’s fashion inspiration this fall. There’s something about the free-spirited styles and neutral color combos that makes me swoon over the decade’s iconic fashions. I’ve been shopping these styles in a combination of ways-through sustainable brands like Reformation (obvs) and through vintage/secondhand resale sites to find genuine 1970’s items. With the growing popularity of secondhand shopping and customers looking for personalized pieces, vintage clothing has grown into a trend in and of itself. This is especially great news for people who can’t afford to splurge on sustainable clothing but still want to be ethical in their purchases.
While there are so many pros and cons to each one that I could make a blog post centered around it, (comment if you would want to read that!) my favorites right now are ThredUp and Instagram. ThredUp is similar to the RealReal but they sell a variety of brands at lower price points; they also offer store credit for Reformation if you send them clothes in a specific bag from Reformation! Instagram, I’ve found, has so many great resale accounts that sell vintage clothes for a fraction of what you would pay on Depop.
For this 70’s inspired fall outfit, I wore corduroy pants and a white tank from Reformation, a wool blazer I thrifted from L Train, a hair scarf I got from Etsy, and my Calvin Klein booties. (shop my look through the links at the bottom of this post!)
