If there’s one thing that screams out 70s, it’s definitely the flared jean. One of those love it or hate it pieces, this fit of jean is seriously flattering and well worth a go if you’re still on the fence about adopting the trend. Go all out with a pair of statement platforms or dress it down with a slouchy T-shirt and pair of trainers if you’re feeling inspired with 70s style icon, Farrah Fawcett. So ditch those skinnies and go for a bell-bottom number
Add in crochet detailing in to any of your outfits this season to give it that boho vibe, whether that be through a top, a skirt or dress. Think Woodstock and pair it with some loose waved hair, a suede jacket with fringing and you’re good to go. Looking for some outfit ideas? Jane Birkin was the queen of crochet throughout the era and certainly knew how to wear it best.
Seen on the catwalks this season, it’s pretty fair to say that jumpsuits are big for this season and with good reason. Whether you’re feeling a wide leg or a flare, plain or printed fabric, sleeves or sleeveless; the high street is awash of every option you can possibly think of. And if you’re after extra style points, look for one with a pussybow detailing.
With bloggers dominating the fashion scene, a favourite North East blogger of ours, Charissa Rae gave us a low-down on which 70s piece she’s loving this season, the bell-sleeve dress. “It’s still ultra feminine and suitable all year round as you can wear with tights and boots in colder months, or sandals and sunglasses in the summer. A staple purchase in my eyes”, and we couldn’t agree more. And if you aren’t one for dresses, keep an eye out for playsuits and tops with the detailing.
If the thought of going all out 70s scares you, then by adding a felt fedora or floppy hat to your wardrobe is the way forward. Guaranteed to turn a few heads, give a nod to the fashion era of the season. Think neutral colours, as you can never go wrong with black or camel, and you’ll be surprised at how many items it can be paired with already in your wardrobe.
