4 Ways to Wear
It's a hard choice to make but out of all the outfits I wore during London Fashion Week, I feel like this one was the outfit that gave me the most confidence. The bold colours, the modern tailoring, the killer boots and the retro sunglasses - all a match made in heaven and one that had me feeling very "fashun".
The SS19 runways saw so many retro trends from tie dye to fringing, from biker shorts to neons but the winner for me, was everything and anything that screamed 1970's chic. The camel coats, the beautiful shades of yellow and orange and the hints of animal print throughout so many designers looks.
There are so many ways to rock the retro trend but the 70's is definitely one of the easiest to weave into your wardrobe, especially when Spring's key shades already nod to the era, without even taking into account the trends themselves.
Inspired by this Victoria Beckham look I wore for Fashion Week, here are the 4 simple ways to wear and rock the 70's this Spring.
THE RIGHT SHADES
Sometimes the trends align and quite frankly my heart skips a fashion loving beat! The colour of the season is undoubtably yellow for me and after falling in love with it last Summer I couldn't be happier about it's reappearance. Think deep yellows like aspen gold and warm mustards, oranges that are vibrant but don't verge on neon, and shades that are bright but still rich in colour. They're the shades that you so stereotypically associate with 1970s decor and the bold fashion choices of the era. This Victoria Beckham roll neck was the perfect addition for the season with it's yellow cuff edging and I've linked a similar one above until this one is available. Easy to layer for cooler days, super versatile for a multitude of looks and a rich enough shade that it can sit alongside deep navy and chic camel tones too. I almost want to say reach for happy shades because whenever I find the right orange or yellow for this season, it truly makes me smile.
I'm not sure I can quite get enough of animal print right now but it's working out which ones I love and how to style them that's my stumbling block. What is amazing about the animal print trend is that it's not only been on people's radar since Fall last year, it was seen time and time again on the Spring Summer runways but then it also made an appearance in next seasons looks too - a style to invest in if there was one! I recently wrote about how I've stepped out of my safe zone and embraced animal print, something I wouldn't have done a couple of seasons ago, so I'm excited to see the longevity in this trend. There's a multitude of ways to wear the style, from as bold as head to toe like my NFD look here, to an accessory clash that I think I'll embrace with some new Spring boots to team with my current favourite basics. Animal print may be the boldest way to wear the 70s but it also might be the best trend to invest in!
