Stuck in the Seventies

Written by

Flared jeans, bell sleeves, and frills galore–the seventies have made a theatrical comeback in 2015, and it looks like the trend is here to stay. With Jackie Burkhart as my fashion icon (shout out to That 70s Show fans), I couldn’t be happier that the style savvy trend is making an autumnal transition. Here are a few items that you might want to consider adding to your shopping basket…

Patchwork:

Whether it’s a suede bag or a leather coat, patchwork jazzes up any fashion piece. In particular, I am lusting after this vintage a line skirt from Milk It. With a mishmash of autumnal neutrals, this skirt screams seventies. Paired with a fringed shirt, like featured on the ASOS website, you will be acing autumn’s top trend.

Folk Blouses:

Although slightly more summer appropriate, you could definitely rock this look well into the coming season. With a lace up top, and flaring bell sleeves, this ASOS blouse is the perfect pick. Paired with your favourite jeans, and layered with a thick scarf, you can be both warm and stylish.

Pinafores:

This is definitely my favourite fashion trend from SS15, and I cannot wait to wear it through to the end of the year. These beauties are literally all over the high street, and are popping up in corduroy as well as denim. Styling the ultimate autumn colours, they can be found in shades ranging from deep mustard, to raging burgundy (like this one from Topshop).

Fringing:

As mentioned, fringing is a key pawn in the seventies fashion game. Adding a bit of texture to your everyday outfits will make your autumn that bit more exciting. My top tip is to invest in a heavily fringed bag, preferably in an autumnal colour. The one that I have picked out is a beautiful oxblood over-the-shoulder bag from Zara.

Suedette A Line Skirts:

Another A line skirt has successfully landed on this hit list! Released in a variety of denim shades throughout the summer, autumn is opting for a suede slant on the style. Sporting olive green, this pick from Missguided would look fab worn with a pair of tights and some little black boots.
