Hit replay, please. The sounds and silhouettes of the ’70s never fade. They just come back into rotation with modern twists — headbands get shiny, maxis show some leg and sneakers are on equal footing with platforms. Stylist Megan Parry puts her spin on looks that will put you center stage.

Styling Tip: Don’t be afraid to play with your hair. We paired this crystal headpiece with an embellished mini dress for a dramatic look. A metallic headband paired with simple jeans and a blazer would be equally as rock ’n’ roll.

Styling Tip: Black tie doesn’t have to mean a black gown. Stand out at your next holiday party in a pastel maxi dress — just be sure to keep your hair soft and romantic and your accessories minimal to keep the attention on your dress.

Styling Tip: Take a break from tights this fall and opt for a jumpsuit. Throw on a fur vest or leather jacket and a pair of heels for a fun night-out look.

Styling Tip: To amp up the style quotient of your casual looks, throw on a brightly printed cardigan over a perfectly worn-in T-shirt and trade your cotton leggings for a suede-paneled pair.

Styling Tip: Camel and pink is a modern color combo with ’70s roots. Here, we went for an updated Annie Hall look with the blouse and scarf. A pink sweater and suede camel skirt would be equally as chic.
