How to Add ’70s Summer Camp Style To Your Wardrobe

Last summer saw the revival of Wet Hot American Summer with Netflix’s original series First Day of Camp. With it came quirky characters and a lineup of easy tees and faded flare. Something about those muggy months brings back longings for firefly-lit evenings, braided bracelets and campfire songs. With flowing skirts, and psychedelic prints, the sunny seventies continue to be representative of the spontaneous and sentimental essence of the warm-weather months.

The simplicity of summer is perhaps best channeled in laid-back tees and the simpler styles of the seventies. So make mischief or laze in the sun with these ’70s summer camp style pieces. Tube socks not required.
