When I think of the brand Rachel Zoe, immediately a very polished look and cohesive ensemble with really defined shapes come to mind. Rachel Zoe is very good at doing “glam”, and this is what she brought to her Spring/Summer 2016 presentation. The supermodels of the late 70’s and early 80’s in all their glamour inspired the collection. There were blouses with exaggerated ruffles and bell sleeves that all the hip- pretty-young-things would love to wear on a daily basis. As well as floor-length dresses with detailed beading and embellishments that would glide you over the velvet ropes at Studio 54.
For the show, I was channelling my inner 70’s chic in all her glory!
I felt like a walking fall trend report. Platforms, box-purse, tie-neck blouse, paisley print, suede, fringe, mini skirt, and bell sleeves all in one cohesive yet fun ensemble.
Not quite the look described in Bette Davis Eyes, that played while the models did their finale run for the presentation. However, this look captured the attitude depicted by Kim Carnes. A woman who’s gleaming with confidence and naturally able to command the attention of a room with her look.
Singing – “And she’ll tease you, she’ll unease you
All the better just to please you
And she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she’s a spy, she’s got Bette Davis eyes”
You don’t need movie star genes to look amazing. You just need to dress well! Meaning loving and owning all your best features and playing them up with all the trends you love. As women we have so many different options to play with in fashion, so take advantage and get as glammed as you would like. You’re sure to find a few must-have pieces to channel your inner 70s IT Girl from the Rachel Zoe Spring/ Summer Collection, so be on the lookout for when it hits stores. xoxoSB

I am absolutely in love with this vest! My younger sister, who is a fashion student, let me know about the era of the 70’s coming back sooner than we think! You pulled this modern that’s so 70s style off well! Love it!
