Mixing Fall & 70’s aesthetics for the perfect outfit:
Fall fashion and 70’s fashion go hand in hand. They both include a lot of neutral and warm colors typically and can be easy to mix together.
The Staples for 70's Fall Outfits
Here are some essential pieces you can add to your wardrobe for the perfect 70’s fall outfits:
- Platform Shoes: Clogs, boots or heels
- High waisted flare pants
- Corduroy or suede mini skirt
- Turtleneck sweaters

Flare Pants Outfits:
Some plaid flares, corduroy flares or bell bottoms would be perfect for a fall or even a festive look. Neutral colors would work well but you can also consider dark green, red, mustard yellow or burnt orange.

70’s Skirt & Tights Outfits:
If you’re going for a 70’s autumnal look, high waisted mini skirts and colored tights would be perfect! I would stick to suede and corduroy material for the skirt to give off that retro feel.
Ways to style skirts & tights:
- Add a sweater on top and tuck it in (or long sleeve bodysuit)
- Pair with a matching fringe vest or jacket
- Add a beret
Retro Witchy Fall Looks:
I don’t know about you but there’s something about the fall time that brings out my inner Stevie Nicks. This style is actually pretty simple to put together. The more flowy and whimsical the better. You can go for more dark colors but if you prefer lighter colors that would work too!
How to style a 70’s witchy outfit:
- Flowy maxi skirts or dresses
- Long flared sleeves
- Shauls & wraps
- Knee high boots, platforms preferred
- Velvet and sheer textures work great for this style
Fall Outfits with Jackets:
Penny Lane Jackets, vintage blazers and suede jackets will give you that effortless 70’s aesthetic and are perfect for autumn.
How to style 70’s fall jackets:
- Add bell bottom jeans for a casual 70’s look
- Try a full 70’s power suit for a chic fall look
