Whether you are reliving your Seventies salad days, or rocking these retro vibes for the first time, there is no question that 1970s fashion adds a soupçon of pure joy to personal style.
Seventies Flare for All
There’s something about flared jeans in the palest blue, embellished with hearts and flowers patches in a rainbow of colours, which says retro-cool like nothing else. Add a wide belt in black or brown and of-the-moment block-heeled pumps in nude to make the look timeless.
Flared corduroys in rich jewelled tones paired with form-fitting turtleneck sweaters tucked in and finished with ankle boots in rich suede hint at 1970’s fashion with a modern flair.
Boho-Chic from Day to Night
For your daytime look, slip into an easy-peasy tiered floral dress and amplify the Bohemian vibe with a long tassel necklace and chunky multi-layered charm bracelet. Then finish your hippie-chic style aesthetic with ankle boots in brown or black over bare legs.
For a night-time twist on the 70s vibe, go disco queen with a satiny camisole tucked into velvet flared jeans and paired with stilettos. Don’t forget to swipe on metallic blue eye shadow and a peachy pink lippie to complete your look.
1970s Fashion evokes carefree summer Sundays in the park, picnic lunches on sunny afternoons and guitar music on warm summer evenings. Patchwork printed tops and dresses paired with Roman sandals and sky-blue jeans and finished with floral scarves tied around long, flowy locks celebrate all the joys of a simple life.
Embrace 1970’s fashion for your next party or date night out on the town and feel all eyes on you as you rock your very own retro-mod mashup. For that special private evening with your significant other, source yourself a fitted 70s suit from your favourite vintage store or look for a modern take on this timeless staple.
The look combines sharply padded shoulders, broad lapels in satin and a nipped-in waist. The trousers are fitted on the top, flared from the knee down. No shirts please, just the buttoned-up jacked and a pair of killer high heels and you are ready to rock the night away. For a more social evening out, wear a black velvet midi skirt with a fitted white lace top and bring the look forward with patent black ankle boots.
1970s Fashion for Everyone
If you don’t want to go all out head-to-toe in 1970s fashion style, pick and choose a few eclectic pieces to elevate your everyday look with some in-the-know savvy. Tying a psychedelic scarf in your hair, around your neck or around your purse handle is an effortless way to add a dash of colour and fun to your outfit.
Swap out your everyday nude or red lippie for the pale pink look of the 70s and add a lip liner in a very slightly darker shade of pink for emphasis and staying power. Tassel necklaces, earrings and bracelets are so very now yet totally Seventies too, so add as much or as few of them to your outfit as makes you smile.
There’s something about Seventies style that bring an innocent joy to the art of dressing up, so indulge!
