Summer Fashion 2011: That ’70s Style

Break out those bell-bottoms: From laid-back bohemian to sophisticated vintage, the hottest fashion trends this summer harken back to what they were wearing some 40 years ago

The sun-kissed days of summer lend themselves to a freer fashion philosophy: It’s time to kick back and let loose. As last season’s trim silhouettes make way for spirited prints, natural fabrics, and unrestrained embellishments, we’re reminded of the counterculture trends of the ’60s and ’70s — and the peaceful vibes that followed. Rock on with these up-to-date looks inspired by the flower-power styles of yesteryear.

Additional Styling: Melissa Esposito • Hair & Makeup: Briana Alessi
Model: Liz Conner, Bella Agency New York • Location: “Jetson Lounge,” Noyes Hall at Vassar College
