FINAL TOUCH: PATCH ME IN
Thinking about how to bring a touch of that sweet seventies glam into your otherwise modern and minimalist look? The solution lies with the ASTIEVEN, a remarkable ankle boot that seems to have all our fave qualities of the era and yet looks uniquely modern, thanks in part to the pointed toe and studded belt detail. Let’s just take a moment to look at the distinctive elements that make our hearts a go-go.
First, we love the way these boots reference patchwork, a nod to the DIY ethos of the seventies. Next, let’s show some love for the earth tones: a key feature of the era (and in opposition to those loud, psychedelic vibes of the sixties). Earth tones like browns, tans, and warm greys go with just about anything. And finally, the piece de resistance. We’re obsessed with the heel on these booties, which playfully allude to that oh-so-seventies shape, the bell bottom.
Throw them on with a pair of ripped denim or pair with a structured skirt and contrastingly slouchy knit turtleneck. Pair with a ladylike structured carry all and a floppy hat à la Annie Hall and you’ve got yourself an outfit that’s as then as it is now, and 100% wow.
