A 70’s Daydream #VerySummerEdit

Does the continuation of the 70s trend make you want to break into a happy dance, too? Just like Galaxy bars, bubble baths and dogs with smiley faces, AW15’s love for the softer side of the disco era makes me incredibly happy. Today’s edit features a fusion of mesmerising fabrics and flower power florals, which re-capture all the luxurious nonchalance of the decade. Love it, or love it not, the 70s tan is showing no signs of fading anytime soon. Shall we?

Faux Fur Gilet

Faux Fur Gilet

This snuggle-me-now gilet is perfect for pre-fall. As transitional as it is on-trend, it can be worn with your denim skirts in the summer, or layered up when the temperatures plummet throughout winter (think cosy duvet day in disguise as a dress-up day). Faux fur fabrics are big news for your 70s edit now and next season – this piece adds a touch of luxe and textural contrast to whatever you decide to wear it with.

Eyelet Side Skirt

Short, but not so sweet, this Mary A-line skirt by Oasis toughens up your throwback florals with a western-inspired edge. High impact and high hemline, it works this season’s eyelets and fringed deets into your collection, while striking a glam rock chord. Graphic floral prints on top soften the look, working with the skirt to create a dreamy style for day or after-dark, depending on how you accessorise.

Floral Print Dress

Fashion stories don’t get more dreamlike than this. Psychedelic florals are reimagined with softer shades of pastel, proving that pretty summer blooms will still be relevant long after the sun has set. With its A-line shape, relaxed cut and handy pocket to keep your sunglasses in, all this piece need is chunky ankle boots.

Zip-Front Dungarees

Born out of the current nostalgia for 70s girl-next-door dressing, the fluid lines of these flared dungarees, paired with the punchy pattern of the top underneath sums up new season dressing. Chunky platforms elevate your look and work with the flared hems to create the illusion of legs that go on forever! Oh and those snake print shoes – mmmmmm :).

Shirt Dress

Down-time dressing is given a luxe refresh with this shirt dress by Glamorous. Vintage-inspired, its relaxed fit, three-quarter length sleeves, button-down front and pocket details create a carefree mood, which is enlivened by a tessellated pattern and contrast trims. Bare legs soothe the mesmerising print, while wooden-look block heels take this OOTD into the night…
