Best and Worst Celebrity 70's-Inspired Looks
70's style has no doubt proliferated in the contemporary fashion scene, and many celebrities are attempting to integrate it into their street styles, with mixed results. Whether bohemian or disco, 70's trends are often best done in an understated way, and some of these celebs nailed the look, others not so much.
Above: Olivia Palermo piles on the 70's suede and fringe, and somehow, it works.

Best

Vanessa Hudgens stuns in this white jumpsuit with just enough flare and just enough plunge to make it clean, sexy, and totally retro. The matching white blazer updates the look a bit, and her pulled-back hair makes her look sleek and polished.

Worst

Rita Ora may be attempting to update the 70s fringe style, but she's overloading too many trends into one outfit. The motorcycle jacket and thigh-high gladiators are unnecessary here, and each piece she wears are all statement pieces that would need to be toned down themselves.

Best

Amal Alamuddin rocks some super 70's bell-bottoms, and it works. The slightly cropped black top and neutral jacket over makes the look anything but costumey, and tones down the crazy pants.

Worst

So Vanessa has her hits and misses. This look is just sooo Coachella, and so overdone hippie chick. There may be away to make crochet tops look sleek and trendy, but pairing them with chains, fringe, and feathers, is just too much.

Best

Poppy Delevingne is such a style star, and her knee-length denim skirt and bell-sleeved blouse are understated and just 70's enough that when they come together, it's magic. Plus, her shoes are amazing.

A hit or a miss?

I'm not sure on this one. Kendall Jenner can pull off practically anything, and this was certainly Coachella-appropriate, but I'm not so sure it's good for much else. Those are some pretty stereotypically-70s pants, and I would usually suggest playing them down with a tucked in tee or a chambray shirt. Kendall's off-the-shoulder top is trendy, but I think for a streetwear look, this would just be too much.
What do you think?

I am a huge fan of the suede fringe skirt (first picture) and the white jumpsuit is absolutely stunning!
I agree with @jordanhamilton and @chandnip804 – love the fringe skirt and the jumpsuit!! Vanessa picked the perfect accessories with those round sunglasses and the necklace – I'm actually IN LOVE with that necklace. So pretty. But in other news, Rita Ora – you look like a horrible mish mash of trends! What was that girl thinking?? (horribly disappointed by V's second look, too. SO overdone. bleh)
