Andreja Pejic (Model)

“As spring approaches I will be sticking to the ’90s Gucci look. Chic, simple and elegant. Lots of white and beige. I’m loving head to toe looks in red, purple, blue and green, too. For musical festivals I’ll definitely incorporate a little bit of fringe and some long flower power skirts. Oh and bell bottoms du jour!”

“I am craving a simple white tee, a vintage necklace I just received for my birthday, my Opening Ceremony bomber and high-waisted, flared jeans from Paige. A nod to the ’70s, but not too themed!”

“I tend to wear funky ’70s tortoiseshell glasses in my everyday life regardless, so imagine my excitement when this era started trending for the season!”

“While I still tend to be more inspired by iconic looks of the 1990s rocker aesthetic, I appreciate the romantic elegance and sporty edge that 1970s fashion trends bring. The spring collections of Chanel, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim are just a few that provide fashionable and practical ideas for a busy city girl like me.”

Jamie Lewin (Director of Design and Trend, Piperlime)

“I am most excited to shed the extra winter layers and focus on a statement-making outfit that can shine without being covered up. Some of my favorite styles for spring are inspired by the ’70s—diaphanous dresses, flared denim and bold floral prints.”

Nicole Miller (Fashion Designer)

“I tend to relate to the ’70s more in the fall. I don’t think I’ll be bringing out my pantsuits in the spring because my big thing is bare legs, so I am looking forward to wearing lots of skirts in a variety of lengths—from my signature tucked pencil skirt in cotton metal, to a fit and flared midi. I am also definitely in the mood for color.”

“I’m looking forward to channeling my inner Jane Birkin. The laid-back, slightly insouciant charm that the spring collections conjured synched perfectly with my desire for a more easy-going approach to style next season.”

“I am looking forward to wedge sandals and light, spring jackets! I’ve always loved a good flared pant. Two favorite pairs of my wide-leg, flared jeans have been sitting in my closet the past two years, and I’m already excited that they’re trending again this spring.”
