There’s no denying that fashion from the 1970s is making a triumphant and fabulous comeback. Today’s throwback to the freewheeling '70s is marked by a surge of classic bohemian style mixed with vintage-inspired pieces and original designs from that era. The '70s were a special time for MIA, so jump into the glam decade with some of our must-haves for this bohemian style boom.

Wide-leg pants: The '70s are synonymous with wide-leg pants and bell-bottoms, so give your skinnies a good “peace out” for the season and jump into a pair with some flare. MIA’s trick? For added wide-leg goodness, find a pair of jeans with an exaggerated flare or D.I.Y. with a trusty pair of scissors.ManuelaBellBottomsGet the Look: You’ll get the best wear out of wide legs and bell-bottoms when you pair them with a sleek heel. Keep things in the '70s era with a pair of wood platform-style shoes like the MIA Manuela.

Crochet or Embroidered Dress: You can never go wrong with a dress with simple elements. For a more bohemian touch, pick a dress with all-over crochet/embroidery. The 70s were all about ethereal, glamorous dresses in either shift dress shape or flowy maxi dress length.


Get the Look: A pair of peep-toe clogs like the MIA Greta is a perfect touch. If you choose a dress with simple details, have fun glamming things up by adding a pop of color with your clogs. Zara Dress
