Bellbottoms, bell sleeves, round glasses and deep v’s have been all the rage for a few seasons, so why stop the retro vibes now? I have been all about the 60s and 70s pieces lately and I am not ready to give them up just yet. Not only because I love the trends but because many of them are super flattering. Extra long bell bottom jeans give your legs a few extra inches of height to help fool people into thinking you are much taller and thinner than you really are. With my 5’6 athletic frame, I am all about tricking people into thinking I’m 5’10. No shame.
I also got a bit creative with this outfit and pulled out a piece from my swimsuit collection to through into the mix. This is one of my all time favorite one-piece swimsuits and I thought it would be perfect paired with high-waisted bell bottoms because of the lace-up detail and chevron pattern. Then I threw on a white blazer over top to polish the look and I am retro ready!
