Breezy jumpsuits are looking fresh and modern—even though they made their sartorial debut more than 40 years ago. Updated prints and cuts are now making this an easy piece for a jump-start to your summer.
Let’s look past the ‘Brady Bunch’ background and ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ eyeshadow, and talk about how we’d put a current spin on that ‘70s glam.
1 – Ditch those block-heel shoes in favor of strappy flat sandals for a casual outfit, or simple wedges for a dressier version.
2 – For a wider-leg jumpsuit, make sure the hem skims the top of your toes—this 1970 look could be a little longer.
3 – Let the jumpsuit take center stage by adding a simple crossbody bag and streamlined jewelry.
4 – Channel your inner Charlie’s Angel confidence, and you’re good to go.

We were doing a little digging around in our trove of old Nordstrom catalogs and kept coming across looks that are feeling relevant again today—with a few tweaks. How about a little show and tell?
Welcome to 1994. Bill Clinton was President; Ace of Base was dominating the Billboard charts; Justin Bieber had just entered the world. Meanwhile, on the fashion front, menswear-inspired women’s wear was all the rage.
While the styling is 18 years old (anyone else remember that haircut?), we love this slouchy, denim button-up blouse paired with high-waist, pleated pants—and it’s definitely a combo we’re seeing come back on the streets. Here’s how we’d update it for 2012.
1 — Choose a denim or chambray top with a vintage aesthetic. Make sure it’s a little baggy, and roll up the sleeves for that lived-in look.
2 — Ditch the earrings, button the shirt all the way up and throw on a statement collar necklace.
3 — Keep the shirt tucked in, but lose the belt.
4 — Add some color to your look with vibrant printed heels.
5 — Throw on an oversized masculine watch to keep with the menswear theme.
6 — Add your final touch with a pop of gold on a clutch.
