I’ll be the first to admit that I think the ’70s fashion comeback is a bit silly. I stopped wearing flare jeans the day they mercifully went out of style in favor of skinnier silhouettes, I think floaty boho tops should stay at the middle school dances where the belong, and I absolutely hate fringe. But I do seem to love every new clothing collection that Kendall and Kylie Jenner come out with, and that includes their eponymous and fast-growing PacSun line.
The Spring 2016 collection just launched yesterday, and it’s full of ’70s-inspired and festival-ready pieces that I’m pretty much seconds away from buying. There are lace-up halters, A-line skirts, and rompers galore, and just so, so much suede. In typical Kendall and Kylie (and perhaps also PacSun) fashion, there are still plenty of cutouts, so I wouldn’t exactly call any pieces in the line work-appropriate, but who doesn’t want to expand their play wardrobe. If the behind-the-scenes video from their photo shoot is any indication, play is exactly what this line was built for:
Whoever said Kylie doesn’t have any modeling chops clearly hasn’t watched her work.
Anyway, the new pieces range in price from $24.95 for the softest-looking baby tee in existence to $64.95 for a pair of flare overalls, and includes three crochet bikini tops that could easily be worn with a pair of shorts or high-waisted jeans for summer wear. These five pieces in particular are going to be hard to resist:
If I could live in rompers without the constant pain of having to remove all of my clothes whenever I have to pee, I would.
Ever since I bought my first floral scallop hem dress back when I was in college, it’s been one of my favorite cuts. Plus, I love the idea of wearing suede year-round, and this color is universally appropriate. Copper is a great neutral.
Who can ever say no to a comfy, oversize sweater?
Forget the LBD: this season is going to be all about the LBR.
Okay, I know I saw that I gave up flares the second they went out of fashion, but something about these really makes me want to give them a try. I could see these working with a cropped tank and heels, though even then I might be tempted to roll up the hems. I don’t know, we’ll see. I’m willing to break my own fashion rules every so often.
