If you haven't heard the latest of the season, there’s a resurgence of 1970’s flared jeans, animal print coats, metallic and fun all over bold style prints – or according to Fashionista.com “the seventies have stayed in style over a number of seasons.” So, we must ask the question, "Are the 1970's a trend once again, or are we just shifting to eternal glam?" We hope for the latter. Here are some images that capture the essence of the era.
As promised, here's a retro classic cocktail...
(paired with a photo of Dianna Ross, of course)
The Heavy Feather House Manhattan recipe:
2oz. High West Double Rye
0.75oz Dolin Rouge
2 dashes of house blend bitters (Angostura Bitters for the home bartender)
Combine ingredients over ice in a mixing glass and gently stir. Strain mixture into glass and garnish with a cherry.
Just so you know, The Heavy Feather has a Manhattan Monday Menu every Monday featuring their House Manhattan, plus others, starting at $6. That’s nearly 1970’s prices and a great place to kick-off a night of dancing!
- Animal print fur coats are always stylish - they seem to reemerge every few years
- Bold prints are back en vogue – pair it with a animal print as shown for impact
- Metallics go fabulously with everything
- Wide leg pants and bell bottoms are currently stealing the scene from skinny jeans
- You can't go wrong with a denim blazer or a vest over lace dress. These two classic 70's pieces are great for that always in season boho look
