I am a Stay-Totally-Away-from-the-Maxi-Dress Kind of Girl. I am short and hip-ish and I really, really think I would look extremely comical in a trendy ’70s-inspired Maxi dress.

Apparently, if done right, however, Maxi dresses look super cute, even on us chiquiticas.

Notice Daniela, above? She’s not tall either, pero mira que linda she looks. Especially with the smart belt around her waist, minimizing the muu muu look I fear. You can see more of her look on her blog, Nany’s Klozet.

In this video, the editors at Yahoo de Moda, who help make millions prettier, offer fashion tips for the doing the ’70s right.  Check out the latest fashion trends and how to wear hippie bell bottom pants, jumpsuits and platform shoes, plus how to experiment color blocking, which is currently hugely popular.

For more on choosing key pieces a lo ’70s, check out this article.

And while I am no fashion expert, I — young woman of the ’80s — have regretted my fair share of bad fashion. So, nenas much younger than I, heed this unsolicited warning:

Y tu?

What ’70s-inspired pieces are you loving right now?

And if you’re wearing jumper shorts, I want a picture.
