What’s hot : Sophisticated 70's

Lately we have seen  a lot of vintage  fashion trends come and go, trends from the 20s, 30s and 80s have been reinterpreted in several ways and we are about to see another great trend come back, this time it’s the jazzy 1970s!!!!

70’s trend is hot right now and predicted to continue into 2012 fashion trend, but with some variant, the particular one I tend to favour is the more sophisticated 70's look.

What to look out for to get your 70s sophisticated wardrobe going

  • Plunging necklines with a deep V paired with a maxi skirt. mid to high waisted wide-leg pants or flares in light flowy fabrics, smartly belted in with a waist-cinching belt.                       

  • Bow-blouses,  with billowing or bishop sleeves in silk and satin fabrics.
  •  Layering beaded necklaces on a vest or high neck blouse
  • Printed jumpsuits , hotpants are  the ultimate 70’s item for the brave
  • Long or maxi pleated dresses and skirts in  light weight fabrics                    

  • A ruffled neckline under a  blazer or tuxedo jacket
  • Long, slinky gowns with draping, low necklines or high slits are the ultimate in ’70s night time glamour.
The wide-legs pant styles may work better for taller frames, so a good alternative is the slim-cut cropped pants or ones with a subtle flare paired with heels.

Accessorizing 7o's Style 

  • Think high quality bag like a leather satchel or a small bag with  long straps.
  • Wear lots of jewelry – but keep it a little cleaner than for a boho look. Try lots of rings with bold stones, neat piles of bangles, and long pendant necklaces and strings of beads.
  • And for hairstyles  sexy long bobs, masses of bouncy curls, or long, flowing hair.
