The SS15 catwalks were awash with 70s throwbacks of floppy hats, garish prints and lots of denim from the likes of Stella McCartney and Tommy Hilfiger.
Now we all love a statement piece, but I think this is a trend worth getting on board with, and I think the easiest way to nail the trend without looking like a complete reject is to think 70s boho with a 90s vibe – think crochet, denim and layering if you will.
Here I have grouped some of the main statement pieces to get you into this trend from some of my favourite retailers, first up New Look:
Affordable fashion, student discounts and bright and vibrant prints, oh New Look how I love you! The block heels, the tassels, the slip dresses – there is something for everyone if you want just a hint of 70s or a proper blast from the past, an hour or two in New Look will definitely hook you up! I personally am lusting the suede mini skirt, a nice hippy top and I will be a happy bunny.
Number two on my list is ASOS. A collection of goodies from lots of shop all in one place, they have got the trend down! I am in love with the maxi denim skirt, which can be tricky, but they have got the perfect shape so you don’t look frumpy. I’d team it with the super tasselled handbag for drinks with the girls.
Last on my list is BooHoo. They take things to a younger hippy feel, think festival chic. It’s all about the crochet shorts and the floppy hat, all you’ll need is a cute pair of sandals and you are set. Coachella eat your heart out!
Will you be rocking the seventies vibe this summer? Let me know your favourite picks – any excuse to shop!
