Here We Go Again… serving looks. This time with a dreamy 1970s vibe. Check out these 15 ways to recreate Mamma Mia’s vintage style from the beloved film.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again comes almost exactly 10 years after the underestimated original movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical. Perfect timing. Between the current state of the world, and it being summer vacation season for the United States, what more could you hope for? The latest film has a flimsy and repetitive plot, strung together by the lesser-known ABBA songs, but luckily there’s dancing! And singing! And fashion!

We’re giving you 15 ways to recreate Mamma Mia’s vintage style — the perfect distraction and pick-me-up from an otherwise heavy existence.

Meryl Streep has attributed getting involved with the Mamma Mia! movies to the darkness following the events of 9/11. She reportedly took a group of children to see the Broadway performance shortly after that tragic day, and noted how it brought light to their lives. Years later, we undoubtedly find ourselves in a bit of a hole. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again delivers a way to lift all that weight, if only for two hours. Proof was a winning opening weekend (#2 overall box office), when it took in almost $78 million worldwide, more than the original budget.

All of the original cast is back, including leading ladies Amanda Seyfried as Sophie, and Meryl Street as her mother Donna. And the newbies shine: Lily James is refreshing as Young Donna, and… CHER. Cher appears at the end of the movie, as Donna’s estranged mother, doing all of the things Cher does best. Which is, well, to be Cher.

While ’90s fashion trends have been hitting us over the head for the past couple of years (not complaining), there has also been a not-so-quiet undercurrent of ’70s looks as well. The bohemian-dominant styles are a perfect fit with a summer holiday in Greece. So, let’s set sail for the idyllic island of Kalokairi (real name: Skopelos, but really Vis, Croatia), and hotel Villa Donna. It’s the perfect backdrop for all of the Instagram-worthy, Mamma Mia!-inspired vintage vibes that we’ve hand-picked for your trip. We’re going heavy on the ocean blue hues.

So, pack those bags, because here we go… again!
