It seems that with every new season comes a new variation on the 70’s trend. In the summer it tends to be more of a bohemian style – floaty maxi dresses and flobby hats. Along come the summer months and our wardrobes are crying out for knitwear, flared trousers and platform boots. All with a 70’s kick.
My Matalan zigzag jumper couldn’t be more 70’s if it tried. The warm, earthy colour palette is spot on for the look, and the zigzag pattern is reminiscent of Misonni’s iconic print. Any high neck knitwear will give you that 70’s look. A cream roll neck will look great with these trousers. If I’m honest, I feel a little like Ted Bundy in this outfit. Not that I mind, I love a bit of true crime.
The 70’s Flares
I love a flared trouser but because I’m only five foot one I find it difficult to find flare trousers that are the right length for me. ‘Normal’ length trousers are far too long, and if I got them tailored I’d lose most of the flare. I think these trousers may have meant to be slightly cropped, but on me, they are the perfect length. There’s a tip for all of you short gals like me – cropped jeans/trousers are your friends. The colour of these trousers really helps with the 70’s trend. A gorgeous rust shade that slots in perfectly with the rest of my autumn/winter wardrobe.
The Platform Shoe
Although I’m not wearing them in this outfit, I found the perfect pair of 70’s style ankle boots back in the summer from ASOS. You can see how I styled them here. The cork platform and tan suede will look fab with jeans and a chunky jumper, or with a winter floral maxi dress to double up on the 70’s trend.
Will you be taking on the 70’s trend this autumn/winter? What is your favourite way to wear it?
