It’s spring 2015 and fashion weeks across the globe have sadly come to an end. The inspiration was endless and for me it’s inspired me to push my fashion boundaries and bring ambition back. It’s time to time travel… back to the 1970s! Flares, sleeveless jackets and shaggy gilets are all set to return to our 2015 wardrobe. If the thought of reviving your mum’s old pair of denim flares is scary, don’t panic! Here are some 70s-inspired ideas that rock.
Be brave and put your skinnies behind you, go on I dare you! This flattering style suits almost all body types by elongating the legs, making you look taller. Once you have found the perfect pair of flares, team them with a fitted silk or plain cotton shirt for a sophisticated ensemble.
The Sleeveless Jacket
This look is another fabulous 70s addition, and will really make you stand out for all the right reasons. Pick a sleeveless jacket that’s longer in length and structured in style for a smart and stylish look in the office that can transition perfectly into a night out. If you want a more casual approach, try a jersey fabric or a shaggy fur.
Fabrics are key to securing the 70s style. Suede, denim on denim and delicate crochets are adorning high street stores all around the country. Don’t be put off by it; be brave and try double denim.
