Mixed in with the spring runway trends of scuba fabric in painterly prints and laser-cut leather, there was a nod to the groovy 1970s.
Fringe, stack heels, bell bottoms and patchwork popped up in shows for women and men. And with just a few tweaks these throwback style elements can be worked into a modern wardrobe.
For jeans, give those painted-on skinnies a rest and try bell bottoms for summer. The Le Petite Boot from James Jean features just a slight flare while Zara, the of-the-moment Spanish retailer, offers high-waist, wide-legged denim pants in a sailor style.
Pair simple flares with a top in a fun pattern, such as a lemony Devon Baer top in a retro cane print or one of the season's feminine peasant blouses.
Never miss a local story.
A style from Freeway features flowing bell sleeves and a sexy dipped back that could be a go-to look for get-togethers.
After the Olsen twins of The Row fame were spotted in Birkenstock sandals a couple of years ago, the comfy European walking shoe became a thing with the fashion crowd.
This same casual-chic look popped up in several spring 2015 women's shows. Designer Marc Jacobs, for instance, paired his shirt dresses, pantsuits and oversized jackets with sandals that looked amazingly similar to the classic Dr. Scholl's slide, beloved by many a '70s teen.
For a more modern look, try metallic slides from Joie, a great accent for a citrus-colored summer skirt or any of the season's black-and-white staples.
For women's hair, think wild and natural, with long, soft waves. It's what New York magazine dubbed "Rich-Girl Hair." Different from the chunky, textured waves of past seasons, spring runways showed simple, clean waves with less product for a softer look.
For men, try working a subdued floral into the wardrobe rotation, such as the dusty-colored Denim and Supply sport shirt from Ralph Lauren.
Add a glow to your summer looks with gold jewelry. Lexington's Shine jewelry store offers looks for men and women including chunky Lucite horns, multi-layered chains and railroad spike cuffs in gold, brass and silver.
For a touch of disco, try one of the whimsical offerings from Lulu Frost. Designs include the Quest necklace featuring crystal arrows and a gold chain and, for a dose of punk, the safety pin-inspired Kinship bracelet.
Whether you skated to Le Freak at the roller rink or just heard about it from your folks, it's a perfect time for your fashionable flower child to bloom.
