Disco Diva in the Office

Green velvet suit with turban
It might be a new decade, but that doesn’t mean that fashion doesn’t still look to history for a bit of inspiration. 1970s flair made an evident appearance in the Kate Spade Fall 2019 collection. Velvet suits, flowing shirt dresses, snappy patchwork and cozy faux fur and shearling ..it’s enough to make “Saturday Night Fever” era John Travolta proud.

Lavender velvet suit
The power suit got a vintage reboot with luxe velvet fabrics and shimmering brocades. The silhouettes featured wide leg pants, not too different from bell bottoms worn by hippies and disco divas of the 1970s.

Green dress and tights


Lavender dress and coat
Dress options offered more variety with belted styles as well as flowing wrap styles in silky fabrics that can transition from day to night. 

Brown brocade dress and yellow tights
Accessories included sheer colorful tights that can be worn to add a pop of color and surprise, while still remaining practical in chilly temperatures. 

Silk dress and turban
Turbans were seen throughout the collection, another revival of 1970s fashion. The turban originally became popular in the 1910s with designers like Poiret and again in the 1940s with Hollywood starlets donning them as a glamorous accessory. In the 1970s, turbans were once again made popular by Biba and Halston with everyone finding ways to incorporate them into their wardrobes, including Bianca Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor and Queen Elizabeth. 
Silk dress
Even if you’re not about to break out into disco dancing, the modern collection offered just enough retro details to power up your next workday outfit to the tune of “Dancing Queen.”
