Get ready to party in style this season with our guide to working the latest trend!
Look 1 – laid-back party girl!
The 70s revival is well and truly here, and we can’t think of a better way to get stylish this Summer than by kitting out our wardrobes with all things 70s! The current trend is for bright colours and bold, funky designs, and 70s shapes have burst onto the scene as well.
Don’t be afraid to go a little psychedelic with your outfits this season. Miniskirts were all the rage in the 70s, but the Maxi length was also a hit, and it’s the Maxi Dress that’s taking the high street by storm right now. Pair an eye-catching Maxi Dress like this multi zigzag bandeau maxi dress from Dorothy Perkins with monochrome accessories and colourful jewellery. We love this versatile imitation leather belt from H&M – tassels are right on trend at the moment, so this is the perfect way to update a 70s look. And why not add some wow factor to your outfit with some retro accessories like these fantastic Round sunglasses from H&M… oh so 70s! This is a trend you can definitely have some fun with.
Our favourite jewellery in keeping with the 70s trend has to be the colourful, symbolic Chakra Bracelets in Gold from Daisy. There’s a colour for every outfit, and the spiritual symbolism of the seven Chakras (plus the Aura, Daisy’s eighth Chakra) lets you wear your personality on your wrist! Gold jewellery is definitely making a comeback, and works perfectly with the warm colours in this dress. Alex Monroe’s bumblebee necklace is our must-have piece for glamming up your Maxi Dresses.
Look 2 – ready for anything!
There are some trends that jump straight to mind when the 70s are mentioned. We’re thinking flares and platforms! Designers have put a modern twist on the classic, flared trouser shape with wide-legged, high-waisted trousers which we can’t get enough of. Monsoon’s ‘Nikki’ wide leg trousers look great paired with colourful, patterned tops like this red paisley print gypsy top from River Island. And of course you can’t go 70s without at least one pair of wedges! Our favourite are these gorgeous orange wedges from New Look, a steal at £19.99.
We’ve kept with the Gold jewellery theme for this look, choosing simple, geometric designs and monochrome colours. Azuni’s friendship bracelets in Gold come in three different colours to match your favourite 70s outfit, and for a bit of glamour we’ve added this fantastic Bali Bubble Ring from Hot Diamonds and a chic pair of earrings from Lucas Jack.
So if the groovy 70s are your thing, you’re in luck this season. And when you’re putting together your favourite ‘far out’ ensemble, don’t forget to have fun and be daring!
