1970’s fashion is something we tend to relate to fancy dress or festival looks with the psychedelic patterns and colourful sunglasses, however that’s not quite the case this Autumn/Winter. The thought of sporting 70’s inspired clothes may be a little bit daunting, but don’t write it off just yet. Yes, if you go all out with bell-bottoms, turtleneck jumper AND platform boots you might be in danger of looking like you’ve just hopped out of a time machine, but here are some suggestions of ways to wear the trend and incorporate some old-school pieces into your day-to-day outfits.
Flared jeans are the epitome of 70’s fashion and possibly the most daunting. However, as seen on stylish celebs such as Victoria Beckham, Vanessa Hudgens and Kendall Jenner, they’re super easy to style up in the 21st Century. Perfect for the upcoming Fall season, I’ve paired these Missguided flares with a classic ASOS cropped jumper, a chic Forever 21 backpack and just for an added bit of sass, this Nasty Gal gold body chain.
Although turtlenecks have been sneaking in here and there since Winter 2013, this year is really their time to shine. You’ll find them invading the high street as crop tops, jumpers and jersey tops. Here I’ve styled the turtleneck jumper alongside this New Look bowler bag, River Island strappy heels and the hottest trend of Summer and Autumn… The Topshop Ripped jeans.

Round sunglasses are an understated 70’s key piece. When you think 70’s fashion – round sunnies aren’t the first thing you think of, yet when you think round sunnies – they are so 70’s! I’ve gone for a more grungy look to style these gorgeous Accessoryo sunglasses. A simple yet stylish Glamorous bodycon dress, chunky black boots from Public Desire with a hint of fishnet from the AA socks, and with an added statement piece of the New Look black and white plaid shirt casually wrapped around the waist.
So, will you be rocking the hippie bohemian look this Autumn/Winter? Make sure you let us know how you’ll wear the trend.
