That 70’s Style…

Florals: Wear florals boho or festival style in bright bold colours to tap into a big trend.

Pleats: Don’t worry, not in the schoolgirl sense. Think long flowing skirts and romantic dresses: cinched in waists with pleated details are a must for Spring.

Lace: Embrace the romantic style with lace, lace and more lace. From daring, barely there lingerie looks to sweet and pretty dresses, lace is a versatile fabric that is guaranteed to crop up every season.

Wedges: Fashion has fallen for the wedge heel. Forget tottering about on stilettos and instead head for this reliable yet stylish shoe.

Wide leg and flares: Take a break from those skinny, almost painted-on jeans and go for some universally flattering and sophisticated wide leg trousers or flares for that seventies edge.

Print: There are no limits to this mini-trend, whether its the more ‘traditional’ animal prints that made their presence known across the catwalk or the more bizarre fruit-inspired orange and banana prints seen at Dolce and Gabbana and Stella McCartney.
