70's style obsession...I was born in the wrong era ....

The 70′s look is standing proud among rails in major stores this season the more I see, the more excited I get!  It’s all about floppy felt hats, earthy tones, exotic jewels, super-high platforms, tailored clothes nipped in at the waist with tasseled or gold detail belts, silk blouses worn tucked into high waisted trousers, Studio 54-esque flowing silk disco gowns and the all important brown-tinted sunglasses.  I love getting inspiration from the catwalk shows and it gives you a good idea on what to look out for on the high street.  There are two sides to the ‘70s revival: the glamorous ‘70s look from chic New York club Studio 54 and the softer 70s which is more like a Farrah Fawcett look with chiffons and paisley prints.  Gucci looks which draw inspiration from Studio 54, the more glamourous/sexy side of the 70′s trend using bold, confident colours.  I’m in love with their gold tassel belts !  There’s a slight tribal edge to the trend this season and Gucci demonstrates that beautifully. Gucci also featured sky-high platforms mixing velvet and suede with jewel and gold colours.  The perfect shoe to team with a slinky maxi dress!  There are already alot of styles on the high-street that mimic these lovely sandals.  Maxi dresses are huge for the summer and as seen in the Pucci (Peter Dundas) shows, it’s all about silk, chiffon and anything flowing.  It’s all about fluid lines and femininity but Pucci chose to toughen up the look with extreme lace up, woven boots which actually works really well and appeals all the textured fabrics that are being used. I am obsessed with this look !!!!!!! I would have fitted into this Era in every way shape and form. A girl can dream .........
