Fashion Trends 2015 – 1970’s Revival
Whilst London fashion week is later this month, where designers are set to reveal their thoughts on Autumn / Winter 2015; the rest of us are looking forward to Spring 2015. The 1970’s pre-disco revival theme dominates spring fashion this year, featuring lots of romantic, bohemian-style clothes and the return of the flared leg trousers.
The 1970’s get a makeover this season, toning down some of the garish colours and mismatch patterns to provide a fun wardrobe with muted colours borrowed from nature. Pick a few key pieces that suit you and your lifestyle from the many themes on offer:
Natural fabrics and graphic prints inspired by Native American designs are accent pieces this Spring. The hems are short but appear longer with fringing, think poncho dresses. Footwear also reflects this theme, with Moccasin boots and fringed gladiator sandals.
The flowing silhouette epitomises this theme, tie die prints, paisley and light, floating fabrics combine in floor length maxi dresses. Colours are plentiful but muted.
Hems fall just above the knee in simply cut skirts and dresses that flare and fold as you move. Prints are prevalent and colours more vibrant than the other themes.
If you want to update current Spring clothes in your wardrobe, invest in silk scarves for instant hippie chic and combine bright retro printed clothes with suede ankle boots.
High waist, flared pants combined with neat printed shirts, worn tucked in is another key 1970’s theme. Reds and navy blues combined with white emphasise the classic elegance of this look. They will make excellent work wear and will look great teamed with one our elegant London duffle coats in Red or Navy for those colder spring mornings.
Must-have Pieces for 1970’s Retro Chic
Invest in these statement pieces to ensure your wardrobe has instant 1970’s chic:
– The Pant Suit: Classic and understated or printed and floating for ultimate romantic fashion, especially if made in the new silky fabrics knitted into lace or macramé.
