Style Like Her: 70s Chic - Gucci Spring 2011 Runway

The Look: If you've picked up a fashion magazine in the last few months, there's no way you haven't noticed the silky, bold and 70s-inspired looks from Gucci's spring collection. Whether it be models posing in the glossy fashion spreads or photos of celebs donning the designer duds on the red carpet, the colorful separates and cool neutrals finished off with rich, gold accents are literally everywhere. Let me refresh your memory: Katy Perry on the cover of Elle in a green jacket and purple pants, Camilla Belle in the orange blazer outfit straight off the runway at a Gucci event, J. Lo rocking the black and jade ensemble at a UNICEF luncheon. I could go on forever naming more examples, but you can see for yourself how to achieve a 70s glam vibe that the people over at Gucci have made Hollywood and the fashion mags go crazy for.

Getting It Right: While the runway looks can be a little intimidating, they're a lot more ready-to-wear than most popular designers usually put out for a show. The key is in the styling. Don't compete with the sheer fearlessness of these outfits; slick hair back into a low pony, complete with an extreme side part for added drama. Secure loose fly-aways with every girl's best friend -- the bobby pin. Match your lipgloss to your fingernails with this season's "it" punchy coral shade.

If you're into a more safari-glitz trend, stick with the neutral jumpsuit combined with a tassled belt and metallic wedges. Throw on a chunky bracelet, and you're a modernized extra from "Saturday Night Fever." Fan of bright jewel tone shades? Toss on a silky colorblock dress, and accentuate the color change with a bold belt at the waist. Pick up a pair of royal-hued sandals that have a hint of metallic within the design to truly mimic the Gucci shoes that strutted on the runways.
