Inches 2 Style

A blog on fashion, motherhood and personal development.


This outfit was inspired by fashion from the 70s which featured wide leg trousers and platform shoes. I’ve been looking for other ways to style these pants worn here and here, because they are among my prized possessions. In my blog reading, I came across this post in College Fashion that inspired me to dress retro. Yes, I'm an graduate who still likes to read blogs that are leaned more towards the college student. What can  say? Maybe I'm in denial!!
So I paired it with a polka dot top which I took from my mum and ballet flats, pearl earrings and necklace and my brown quilt bag. I had wanted to wear my wedges but I had to attend my friend’s graduation party (i.e. I was in the cooking and clearing team) that afternoon so I opted for functional shoes.

Outfit Details:
Palazzo pants: Sarojini Market, India
Polka dot blouse: gift
Earrings and necklace set: gift
Handbag: Sarojini Market, India

Some features of 70s features that I love are:

Wide-leg / palazzo pants

Anything maxi be they dresses or skirts

Straight-leg trousers aka cigarette pants

Wrap dresses made popular by Diane Von Fustenberg. I'm yet to acquire one but this is one dress I'm sure I won't mind wearing.

 Platform Shoes although now with my back constantly giving me issues, I don't know when or where I'd wear these shoes to.

Do you like retro fashion. Would you wear anything from this era?
