6 Trendy Outfit Ideas Inspired by Jane Birkin, Farrah Fawcett, and Diana Ross

The '70s are back, baby. But it's not just bell-bottom jeans and fringe this time around—crochet, babydoll dresses, oversize round sunglasses, and frilly tops will also be hugely popular this spring and summer. Mark my word. 

I looked to three of the era's icons for a little help with '70s-inspired outfit ideas that still look cool today. It was the decade Farrah Fawcett got her breakthrough role in Charlie's Angels, Diana Ross enjoyed huge success with The Supremes, and Jane Birkin became the poster girl for French-girl style. All three women's style has stood the test of time and is still impossibly cool to this day. Scroll down for six outfit ideas inspired by the '70s.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
