After its heyday, the 1970s were never considered the pinnacle of stylishness, but in recent years, 70s-inspired fashion has once again graced runways and boutiques across the globe.

The latest cover shoot for Vogue Japan showcases several ensembles reminiscent of this groovy decade, from bell-bottom office wear to giant hoop earrings. The office wear is possibly the most striking outfit featured in the editorial. Its grey-blue hue and loose-fitting structure gives the model, Toni Garrn, an androgynous look, while her elaborate hair and makeup re-inject the creation with femininity, giving her the air of a powerful working woman.

The rest of the editorial's ensembles also feature modernized 70s styles, such as halter-topped dresses in vibrant colors, and groovy, colorful makeup. Each of these styles is both vintage and contemporary, making it a mellifluous blend of past and present, and a popular style that women everywhere are sure to get excited about.
