The holiday season will be here before you know it, so why not take a stroll down memory lane and see how Hollywood partied in the '70s? (Hint: The decade's biggest celebrities went all out.) We set out to find the best old photos from New Year's Eve bashes, and we truly struck gold.
We're talking Diana Ross at a New York bash in 1978, Meryl Streep partying it up wearing a blazer over a slip dress in 1979, and Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg celebrating in Paris in 1977. (Naturally, Birkin is holding an on-trend wicker bag, and we wouldn't mind borrowing the exact same one.) Oh, and there's also an epic photo of a seriously stylish and iconic trio: Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol, and Liza Minelli. What more could you ask for? What we would have done to be invited to these parties. (The only question that lingers: What would we have worn?)
If you're feeling inspired by the decade, we rounded up the perfect pieces to add to your closet. Frame, for one, has created arguably the best pair of flared jeans around, and Quay designed some cool John Lennon–esque shades that ring in at under $75. Easy-breezy blouses and cool striped tees complete our roundup of '70s-inspired items that don't look out of place in 2018. Scroll down to see the best vintage photos from New Year's Eve in the '70s, and shop our picks to get the look.
