Barbra Streisand’s 70’s style in the book Handbags: What Every Woman Should Know

While my mother’s vintage style was a huge influence on my own, I’m also completely enamored with the fashion of 70’s icons like Carly Simon, Stevie Nicks, Diane Keaton, and believe it or not, Barbra Streisand. This look is the epitome of laid back style from that era that still holds up today. I love how she took a bag that appears to be from the 1920’s-30’s and made it modern and timeless.

Babs was quoted that the 1970’s was “not a glamorous era.” True, the styles were not as glamorous as decades past, but to me, its style was a laid back bohemian glamour that still holds up today.
