Spring 2011

Alexa Chung – Vintage YSL peasant blouse inspiration

There is one thing for sure that you must know by now:  the 70’s are back in full force.

The reference point for most designers goes back to YSL and what he did in the 1970’s.  From the color palette to his famous Gypsy collection, everyone from Marc Jacobs, Fendi, D&G, Etro and Ferretti are all getting on board for Spring 2011.

One of the standout trends that we have spotted is the Peasant Blouse. Done in many variations, we’ve seen off the shoulder, embroidered and romantic styles.

When it comes to wearing this boho chic staple in a modern way, look no further than Alexa Chung. The trendsetter was spotted in New York earlier this year in a breezy vintage blouse embellished with intricate red needlework. But instead of pairing the top with a flowy maxi skirt and beaded sandals, the trendsetter opted for vintage cutoffs, Topshop’s Crochet Shopper Bag ($76), and edgy Mishka Liliana Sandals ($375) in Black Patent, which restrain the outfit from looking like a total flashback.
