I have a great appreciation for classic trends—I've always been told that I was born in the wrong decade—so, suffice it to say, I'm pretty stoked that the '70s are back. And I'm most excited about denim flares. Not only are they extremely versatile, they'll instantly elevate your entire look. I opted for a dark wash pair from LOFT and, taking a cue from Sofía Vergara in September's "Bolts from the Blues" story, finished with platform wedges (another popular style from the disco era) for added height. Next up: jumpsuits!
