70's Style Icon:Olivia Newton John

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; the 1970's has been a long time front runner for the title of my favorite fashion era. Today, we're talking about, English babe, Olivia Newton John, particularly, her ensemble in the photo below.

What I love about this look from her is the mix of chunky accessories (i.e. her belt and platform boots) with a casual t-shirt, shorts, vest combo. 70's glamour and 60's minimalism all in the same look.

Today, I'm helping you to recreate her look with pieces you can find now!

Start with a basic, olive colored, long sleeved top. This one is updated a tad bit because of the cropped hemline.

A pair of denim shorts is next on the list. Olivia's are super short, but stick with whatever's comfortable for you.

Part of what makes me love this look so much is the long plaid vest. Any print will work here, since the rest of the look is solid, so have fun with it! The two below are great options.

Olivia's boots scream 60s and 70s. A gray boot with a chunky heel will give a similar effect to your look. If it's too hot to wear a knee high boot where you are, go for an ankle boot!

My favorite part of her look is her belt. I think it's such a fun statement piece. Add the same type of statement to your look with a toned down chain belt like this one, or the many others on the market right now!

Complete your look with a long, gold necklace, and you're good to groove! Haha! Sorry for the cheesiness, but you know you love it as much as I do!

There's something so fun about recreating an amazing look from the past! What is your favorite fashion decade to pull inspiration from? Let me know in the comments!

Peace, love, and Olivia,
