5 Tips for Nailing the 70s Trend

Wednesday, 1 April 2015


1. Fringing
An essential. I have seen fringing show up on just about everything from skirts to jackets and I'm obsessed! I didn't think I'd really like it, I thought it would just be a hassle and I'd end up with tassels everywhere but it can be done in quite a minimal, discreet way which I just love. I think tassels will be amazing for festival season and for making any outfit pop.

Fabulous fringing:



2. Suede
I quite like velvet fabrics and I think suede is similar, I'd go as far as to say it's easier to wear than velvet. I think suede works really well with whatever you wear and it's like adding a new dimension to your outfit (you know how much I love mixing together different textures). I'm pretty sure you can find just about everything in suede now too haha - so it isn't to go a miss in your 70s look.

Sensational suedes:



3. Flares
A controversial pick but I'm obsessed. I find that it's hard to find the perfect flare if you're a tall girl like me, I hate it when the trouser isn't quite long enough so it doesn't properly cover your feet, you end up with a full flare at your ankles.. not the best kind of look. I suggest to search in tall sections if you have long legs - my pair are from George at ASDA and they have the option to get the jeans in a long length - or, wear flares with flats or trainers like the ever so popular Adidas Stan Smiths for a fashion statement.

Funky flares:



4. Paisley Print
For this tip I was debating between camel and paisley print but then I decided to go with the latter, I just think camel is quite versatile and doesn't necessarily scream 70s (although you'll see tonnes of it in this post anyway). I always shy away from prints, I'm more of a colour block kinda girl, but the 70s are all about exaggerated prints and I think paisley is the perfect companion. Earlier on in the week I wore a paisley print playsuit which I think really suits the 70s trend, I've seen some killer flares covered in this print so I'm pretty sure it means paisley is 70s approved!

Perfect paisley prints:



5. Round sunnies
I've had a round pair of sunglasses since last summer and I got so much wear out of them; I know I will this year too, even more so now that the 70s is a huge hit. The round shades are a staple 70s piece so how could I finish this post without including them? Keep your eyes protected from the rays whilst looking super trendy! This pair is literally insane.

Rockin' rounds:



How are you nailing the 70s trend?
