Seventies casual style can be described as flowy, flared, and relaxed. Some of the most common 70's fashion trends include:
- Bell bottoms and flare pants
- Platform shoes
- Flowy dresses
- Bell sleeves & halter tops
- Floral prints & warm, neutral colors
Flare pants were a staple of the late 60's and 70's. Here are some pictures of authentic bell bottom and flare pants outfits.

Since bell bottoms tend to run on the longer side, it's no surprise that platform shoes became the most popular shoe style. Platform heels or boots will make any 70's outfit even groovier and give you that boost you need to keep your flare pants from dragging.
Seventies fashion is the epitome of bohemian style. Maxi skirts and dresses were especially popular in the 70's along with flared and bell sleeves. Form fitting outfits were more trendy in the 60's, relaxed and wider looks were more of 70's style. Think, wraps, kimonos, shawls and more of a whimsical vibe.

Prints and Color Scheme:
Floral prints were trendy in the 70's along with bold, geometric based patterns. Plain prints like stripes and checkered were also popular. Warmer colors like orange, brown, and yellow were very common in fashion, home designs and even artwork.
