1970s Fashion Tips for Spring and Summer

1970s fashion Etro

Spring summer 2015 collections displayed distinctly 1970s tone. The most typical reminiscences of 1970s fashion are about big, bold styles, but not this time. In 2015, the relaxed glamour of the 70’s is as subtle as a butterfly’s kiss.

Good news for those who are not fans of this decade – you can keep your mother’s bell bottoms where they belong – on the bottom of her closet. This time, master subtle 70s chic in denim, retro lapels, daring colour combinations and flared pants. The other major trends that take a cue from 1970s are coloured suede and soft summer dresses.

To embrace the fashion’s retro revival, look for a one statement piece with the power to transform. Judging from the runway pictures, the carefree spirit of 1970’s fashion can be recreated with the following garments:

Suede jacket

Thanks to its ubiquitous presence on the spring runways, the fringed jacket is one of the best ways to work the season’s ’70s trend. Make this suede piece the focal point of your look by styling it with pared-back separates. Looking for something bolder? Team with skinny jeans, Western boots and an undone skinny silk scarf for rock’n’roll edge. As seen in: , , .

Flared pants

If suede outerwear is not your cup of tea, you can always channel the season’s ’70s mood in flare pants. Look for styles that are tight at the top and fashionably wide at the bottom. For the for leg-lengthening effect, find styles with a flattering high-waist. Farrah Fawcett mastered flares by pairing them with a peasant blouse and platform shoes. As seen in: , , Elie Saab, .

Haute hippie dress

This maxi dress is a modern reinterpretation of a boho-chic style. Made of light fabrics such as silk-chiffon, the breezy 1970s-inspired summer dresses come in multiple colours and prints. Our favourite styles feature tiers and tasseled trims which catch the eye with every step. This chic style needs appropriate background such as gold jewellery and wind-swept hair.
