I’ve not done a fashion post in a while so I thought I’d share an update of what I’ve been wearing recently which is pretty much the 70s trend all over. The 70s is huge right now – Think flares, tassels, of the shoulder off the shoulder tops, button up skirts, denim and more denim. If you are slightly worried about looking more fancy dress than on trend, here’s how I’ve contemporised the trend this season which I split into 2 posts because there’s so much to go through. Here’s Part 1.
The easiest way to jump on the trend is to invest in some flares. I’ve found that Zara are doing the best on the high street. They average out at around $80 a pair and are great quality. I’ve styled these two in completely different ways, the first is paired with a simple t-shirt and leather jacket while the bottom one is more of a daytime look with a cream blouse and tassel bag.

2. Wide Leg Pants
If you’re not confident to rock the flares, why not take on the trend by wearing wide leg pants? It’s a very flattering piece that elongates the body, a big win all round!

3. Bell Top
Score top points for pairing a bell top with a pair of flares as seen below. I found this top in H&M and even though it was 4 sizes bigger than I usually buy, there’s nothing easier than clinching it in with a belt.

4. The Denim Dress
You’d be mad not to buy a denim dress right now. The variety out there is huge at the moment. See how I’ve styled mine below for a 70s look.
5. Off the Shoulder Top
Another easy way to update your wardrobe is by jumping on board with an off the shoulder top, perfect for the warmer months to come and an instant nod to the 70’s trend.

6. 70s Vintage Print Dress
If there’s one thing I love about the 70’s then it has to be a good old fashioned vintage dress. There’s nothing more authentic than wearing something actually from the 70’s. Look for high neck and long sleeves for on trend pieces. Que the dresses below

Hope I could be of some inspiration to you! Keep tuned for Part 2 coming soon. Expect to see dungarees, buttoned up skirts, suede, cord, tassels and so much more.
