In the 70s Linda Ronstadt was the premier rock chick of her time: a big voice, sex symbol, and fashion icon. Ronstadt always had a reluctant relationship with fame, but her sonic and sartorial influences have transcended fads.

Now that spring is nearing an end and summer is starting to bloom, the sudden navigational change in fashion can be seen in full force. Gone are the 80s power looks and in are the 70s subdued, laid back, billowy silhouettes. We can already see the lasting effects of this in the wide leg pants coming in for fall.

Ronstadt's signatures in the 70s included wide leg pants, bell sleeves, baby doll silhouettes, tiered and maxi dresses.
