Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

Ok so I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of excited that high-waisted denim with an exaggerated flare is still holding on strong to be a staple this season.  I'm mean really how can you not go boho chic or give a subtle nod to the seventies without this style?!? Speaking of the seventies, the decade's influence is not lost on trends for this fall, but you want to make sure you're not dressed for the disco. The trick to this look is keeping it modern!

The Cure: State of the art Seventies-esque
It's important to remember that certain trends do not require you to actually purchase pieces from the decade, the style is influenced not copied.  A high-waisted, exaggerated flare pair of dark denim resembles the cut made popular in the 70's, but still incorporates a modern fit.  Pair it with a print blouse, maybe one with a semi-boho look (check out the flutter sleeves) but nothing too over the top.  Then to really make the look current, go with a bold pump, like this patent burgundy number with a slightly geometric pointy toe, definitely not a 70's staple, but will surely set this look apart!
