70's Trend

The 70's decade had so much going on when it came to fashion, there's definitely something for everyone. Flares were huge there was no doubt about that, but what else made the 70's stand out? Denim, suede, maxis, florals, platforms and sheepskin were just some to name a few. I loved the colours from the decade, especially the burnt oranges, mustards and browns.

When you're styling this trend, it's good to mix and match to make it more modern. All the below looks have a 70's feel, but still versatile and can be worn again in a different way.

If there's one thing to buy for this trend, it's denim. Flares are flattering and do come in fashion time after time, however, if it's not for you consider cropped bottoms or if anything a denim shirt. A denim shirt will last for years, the double denim will work for a 70s vibe.

Some of my favourites from the high street below:


L-R: Cord Jumpsuit, Cord Dungarees, Cord Jacket


L-R: Denim shirt, cropped jeans, lace up cropped jeans 

Some others: 

1. Trousers, Top 
2. Skirt
3. Shirt

5. Dress

When the catwalks were filled with tailoring, I couldn't wait to see what the high street had to offer. I like to think my style is somewhat androgynous, so this trend was perfect for the likes of me. But the great thing is that tailoring will last years in your wardrobe.  I have two classic blazers I have had for years, I bring it out year after year, it's never dated.

Trousers suits are big this season, if you feel a bit overdressed, dress down with trainers or just wear the trousers with a slogan tee or jumper. Below are a few ways you can style this trend (All images from Pinterest).

The benefit of buying a suit is that you can mix and match. We saw above that trousers can be worn just like jeans, dressed down. The same applies to a blazer, a blazer is not only great for layering under coats, wear it as a light jacket to wear over jeans, dresses and skirts. Or invest in a well-tailored coat, it will last you for years and become a wardrobe essential.

Whats on the high street:

The below blazer is perfect to wear with jeans and dresses, the trousers will look great with a pair of white stan smiths or converses and a basic tee or chunky knit.

The official colour of Autumn/Winter, RED! Red associated with romance, danger, fire and many others, this bold primary colour represents power to me. It will transform any outfit, sometimes even the simplest things like red lips, red nails or red shoes will still do the trick.

I've put together a few of my favourite street style images from Pinterest below for some inspiration.

The easiest way to add red to your outfit is accessories. Shoes and bags add colour to a simple outfit straight away.

Tops are good for people that don't want to stand out too much, wear with denim or black and it won't look too much.

If you want to make a statement then invest in a coat, this will brighten up any outfit and you will definitely stand out from the crowd. Trousers and skirts are also another way to make a bold statement, dress these with colours such as pink, white, black, grey or denim. But if you really want to go all out then be the lady in red and invest in a red dress!
