How to nail 70s fashion today
Whether you’re looking to update your downtime wardrobe or need something for an upcoming holiday, the 70’s trend is the perfect out-of-office ally. From bohemian babe (think floaty maxi dresses in patchwork prints and lace-up peasant blouses) to haute hippy (silky flared trousers and heavenly suede skirts), and even cool-girl-groupie (channel your inner rock goddess in all things fringed and mini) – there are so many ways to work the 70s trend this season. And the best news is, when it comes to the 70s trend, clothing can be as bold or subtle as you like, making it a trend everyone can get on board with.
On the designer front, the retro revival stormed AW16 catwalks. At Chloe, it was all about daywear denim and divine maxi dresses, while over at Saint Laurent it was rock n’ roll attitude to the max. While you can go head-to-toe with the trend, our favourite way to work 70s styling is by opting for one piece at a time. A plain suede mini – we’re looking at you, Topshop – will make just as stylish nod to the decade as a crochet crop top.
Alternatively, an embroidered peasant blouse will pack as much punch as a tan suede jacket, floaty patchwork dress or pair of wide-legged kick-flare jeans. For pieces like this, check out Mango, Reiss, and Zara, while on the designer front, there’s keep-forever pieces from Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Jil Sander.
