Seventies Style Summer Essentials

The best thing about fashion is the ability it gives you to reinvent yourself and try out something new. This Spring/Summer, I’m building my summer wardrobe with the seventies aesthetic in mind.

It only takes a quick look at some iconic seventies fashion icons to be reminded of how cool this era really was. I’m hoping to take inspiration from the fashion greats, and reinvent the seventies cool-girl vibe for wherever I am this summer, whether that’s on holiday, at work or just catching up with friends over a coffee.

So these are the trends I’ve identified as absolutely essential for emulating a chic 1970s style.

  • plunging necklines
  • tailoring: shirts, blouses and boiler-suits
  • chunky wedges
  • lace-up knee high boots
  • white trainers
  • Mini-dresses of all kinds, billowy and shift styles
  • High-necks: polo-neck jumpers and high-neck blouses
  • Waist-high flares
  • Denim on denim: twinsets and playsuits
  • Slinky satin head-to-toe: dresses and twinsets
  • Graphic tees
  • White on white: especially an unbuttoned blazer with white jeans or pleated skirt
  • Bold and clashing patterns: blouses, dresses or jumpsuits
  • Hats! Floppy hats and straw hats of all kinds
  • Hexagonal sunglasses

These are the items used need to form a capsule 1970s inspired wardrobe:

  1. Flare denim jeans, SHEIN, £19.99
  2. Nike OG Cortez trainers, Nike, £64.95
  3. Stripe Crop top, Topshop, £3.00
  4. Stripe halter neck top and shorts set, £45.00
  5. Plunge neck one piece swimsuit, SHEIN, £8.99
  6. Light brown platform espadrilles, River Island, £35.00

I hope you enjoyed this brief look into 70s summer style, more to come! x
