A tribute to the 70s
The decade that brought us platforms and flares is enjoying renewed popularity, but this time around the focus is on retro-modern accents rather than souped-up ‘70s flower power

The whisper of a ‘70s style revival conjures up an instant image of nostalgia and excess – Starsky and Hutch textures, exaggerated silhouettes, psychedelic florals all topped with ridiculously animated accessories and footwear.  But scrap that. All of it, well almost. This season ‘70s influences are enjoying a make-under, which means it’s potentially the most wearable trend yet. These are your need to know details:

  • Think clean smart lines, such as double-breasted blazers, classic turtlenecks and slim-fitting flares.
  • The colour palette is crucial and the fashion forecast shouts minimalism. Mellow mustards, rich merlots and aubergine purples are the perfect partners for Prince of Wales checks and pared-back florals.
  • Tailored separates with retro nuances, like the wide-leg trouser, make a welcome workwear addition.
  • Lush velvet accessories nod to the trend with none of the novelty naffness associated with a fashion comeback.
