Serious 70s Vibe
Many of us have been there before! But personally, I can't remember it too well, except maybe brown flared corduroys. Yes! I am talking about the 70s! They are back with a vengeance and are mainly responsible for the increase in warm toned clothing.
Most exciting is flared trousers are coming back. SUCH a great style for balancing out hips and those with a larger chest. Very flattering. This also means skirts are getting longer (to hopefully just below the knee rather than above) and the maxi dress is staying around for another summer. Hooray!
Colour blocking is BIG BIG BIG and I shall dedicate another whole blog to this as it's something Sarah and I have talked about for years. Colour on colour. Very exciting, very slimming. Very scary for some. But when done well, wow, it's a fabulous way of feeling as tall and thin and funky as you possibly can.
Other than bold colours there will be a trend towards floral and 1970's glam retro looks. Think flares, florals and platform shoes.
