This Spring season it's all about the 70's bell sleeve trend. Of course no one does 70s vibe bell sleeves better then Free People (some of my favorites here and here). But if you are a little weary of rocking this look, you can update this piece with some simple key statement makers.

How I Wore the Look:

1. Use Layering Pieces. I'm totally digging the 3/4 sleeve leather jackets. Mine is from Zara but some designers like Rebecca Minkoff have great stable pieces as well. Quarter sleeve jackets allow you to layer the bell sleeve while showcasing what the shirt is all about...the bell.

2. Accessories. Play around with a throwback accessory like the bandana. Tie it around your neck for motor girl feel. Have fun and do a funky shoe like a pompom on the toe like the Bettye by Bettye Muller shoes.

3. Skinny Jeans. To down play the 70s feel, do pair it with a pair of skinny jeans. If you want to play up the 70s vibe try a pair of flare jeans.

Would you wear this trend?
