70s Revival ~ Spring/Summer picks <3

On the go city girl.

On the go city girl.

The catwalk has spoken! 

This season is all about the 70s look (if you get it right ... some 70s things look pretty garish.) A few things to keep and eye out for are; a neutral colour palette, paisley, suede, fringes, fedora hats and maybe a hint of fur. This is more typical of the late 70s rather than the early 70s- where clothes were very over-the-top and brightly coloured.

The overall look is a perfect mashup between the mods and the hippies from the 60s; you can clearly see that with the edginess of the tight trousers and the fedora hats combined with the tasselled leather bags and the suede waistcoats.

The best way to rock the 70s look is to include some retro looking clothing, but with a modern twist, so you don't look like you're going to a fancy dress party or a disco. Don't just wear it for the sake of it looking 70s, wear it because you actually like it.

I think you can go two ways with this look this summer... you can either opt for the 70s boho festival look ... or you can be the city 'on the go' chick.

The city chick will strut the street in her denim jeans or flares; her country cousin will opt for lighter cotton trousers or a floaty paisley dress.

I live in the city ... but I think I am a country chick at heart still and love the boho festival goer look :)

Here are some fab items I have found and love. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Is it just me or does the model look like the women off Orange Is The New Black!

This lovely lace beaded blouse would look amazing paired with the suedette shorts above.

Open Knit Dolman Cardigan - £22 Forever 21, I tried to find the dress but it is no longer on the website? Not sure why.

At first I weren't too sure about the 70s look, but I am now won over ... any 70s style skeptics out there too?
