Joni Mitchell (born Roberta Joan Anderson; November 7, 1943)
With spring around the corner, I couldn't help but pick up a few magazines to check out the "new" 2011 fashion trends. Joni Mitchell is an icon because of her music and fashion sense in the '60s and '70s. I’m going to discuss some of the top fashion trends of the season and show you how they are similar to Joni's clothes from this era.
According to Marie Claire magazine, bold colour blocking is used this season by pairing mostly primary colours or complimentary jewel tones. The top photo is taken from Marie Claire magazine, and the picture below is of Joni Mitchell wearing a "colour-blocked" shirt that displays some of the same colours. It is also evident that Joni Mitchell's signature bangs is still a very popular hair style.
Trend #2: 70s Retro Chic
According to Marie Claire, designers are using soft fabrics and exaggerated lines with pieces featuring "statement sleeves, faded denim and flared-legged trousers,” and are influenced by 70's “Swagger". The first picture is also from Marie Clair magazine displaying the style and the second photo is of Joni... who obviously rocks the hippy chic look.
