Take one look at Simon's take on trends circa Anticipation-her 1972 breakout album for the unaware out there-and you'll see why she's the perfect person to be Currently Channeling right now. The stunning songstress favored gladiator sandals, large floppy-brimmed hats, and the occasional casual caftan-like top, all of which are equally fresh now. Roberto Cavalli, D&G, and DKNY showed variations of Simon's specific hippie look.
It's beyond easy to channel Carly and we've picked a few key pieces to get you started. The round frames of Proenza Schouler's Contrast Sunglasses ($290) look like they could be a modern oversized version of the era's granny glasses. We love the shiny black option but the tortoise is even more divine. Another amazing item is the Tibi Zebra Print Tunic ($325), which has fantastic wooden bead detail at the neck. As far as accessories go, we imagine Simon would flip her lid for a slouchy big-brimmed hat in a zesty orange like the Straw Floppy Hat ($40) from Topshop. Our final spirited selection is the Beaded Thong ($88) from Jeffrey Campbell. The beaded gladiator sandal is perfect in purple, as shown, and wonderfully warm in a natural tan shade as well.
