I remember watching show’s like Charlie Angels, Starsky and Hutch and Abigail’s Party and thinking how awful the 70s fashion was then, with ugly platform shoes and comedy collars, but with most fashion trends we have a rinse and repeat cycle.
As Autumn/ Winter draws ever closer it looks as though the resurrection of the 70’s retro rival has arrived once again from boho, pussy-bow blouses, floral prints, fringe, flares and suede. So keep your flares and anything 70s at the ready.
If like me you still haven’t succumbed to the 70s flare trouser or jeans then try a boot cut jean with a straight leg that has a slight flare at the bottom, this will give you that 70s flavour, remember don’t confuse boot cuts with flares, as flares tend to come tight at the top part of the leg and then flare out at the bottom.
Chic 70s look
Create this simple but up dated 70s look with jeans,Pussy bow blouse, if you want to go for a nice and easy look on the blouse just loosen the bow allow it to hang down in a knot just above your bust, then it’s platform shoes all the way to finish the look.
The Bohemian look is not just reserved for you the free sprinted fan, it’s a style that can be dressed up or down without losing its care free sense of style, just like this fabulous paisley print dress, finish with some suede knee high boots add some fringe with this dark red bag to complete the look.
70s inspire coats and waistcoats.
Suede can be seen all over the catwalks, designer stores to old our faithful high street, from dresses, 70s coats to fringed jackets.
