Natasha Zinko brought a pop of color to the Elie Saab couture show in Paris – and a ’70s look replete with purple glasses and blouse and yellow velvet pants. Expect more wild colors this fall as traditional autumn colors give way to the whole rainbow.

Sofia Sanchez de Betak at Bouchra Jarrar SS2016 - detail

Sofia Sanchez de Betak has always rocked a little bit of a hippie ’70s vibe, even before the rest of fashion caught up with her. At the Bouchra Jarrar show last week in Paris, she wore a striped tie-neck blouse layered under a sweater.

Gilda Ambrosio at Dries van Noten SS2016

Gilda Ambrosio at Dries van Noten SS2016

Street style-wise, this has been the season of Gilda. The Italian fashionista has tapped into the ’70s zeitgeist that’s been percolating since Alessandro Michele took over at Gucci. Her center part and retro shades, personal style trademarks of hers for years already, add to a sexy, louche look that’s also beautifully put together.

Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at Elie Saab Couture FW2015

Kind of obsessed with this retro look on Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at the Elie Saab couture show this summer. The glasses! Also, after a few seasons of not seeing jeans because of overall skinny jean fatigue, denim may be back in a big way on the streets this fall, in a variety of cuts and washes. It’s that ’70s thing, as spurred on by the new Gucci collection.

Yoyo Cau at Sacai FW2015

Yoyo Cao at Sacai FW2015

Loved this interpretation of trends on Yoyo Cao that’s current without being over the top: a bolero jacket and hat with layered necklaces and a ’70s-style patchwork denim maxi skirt.

Wide Brim Fedora, Outside Gucci

Gucci’s increasingly pervasive influence in fashion is evident in the shape of this hat, which, though I think it’s Borsalino, not Gucci, echoes the FW2011 collection from the storied Italian house. Though Frida Giannini cited the ’70s as a major influence for that collection, I can’t help but see 1940s menswear in the wide brimmed fedora and the wide lapels on her tweed coat. Yet the whole effect is super feminine.

Virginia Smith at Viktor & Rolf

Vogue editor Virginia Smith has been rocking a key piece for fall 2011: wide-legged corduroys. Hers are by Theyskens’ Theory, worn simply with a black tee, black RayBan wayfarers and snakeskin clutch.

Seventies Look, Outside Carlos Miele

Personally I’m loving the ’70s look for this fall. The wide legged jeans (J Brand, I believe) and floppy wide brimmed hat are so Love Story, conjuring up a romanticized collegiate vibe of years past.
