70’s FASHION BACK IN THE FASTLANE
From haute hippie to disco darling, Dublin’s high street has all you need to nail the 70’s fashion trend this sartorial season.
Spring Summer 2015 throws a nostalgic nod to the seventies with some of the key styles reminiscing seventies glamour. It seems as though 2014’s American Hustle has made an impact on the designers with plunging neckline and voluminous trousers being prominent on the SS15 runways.
The flared jeans may be synonymous with a divided opinion, but truth be told, the kick flare silhouette is undeniably flattering. Make sure you choose a high-waisted pair and team them with a tucked in blouse to achieve a lengthy legs silhouette to rival Elle McPherson. Oh, and make sure to button the blouse down a couple of buttons too far. The seventies siren was unapologetic sexy.
If you’re not quite ready to embrace the flare, fear not because the seventies influences are plentiful. Jackets and jumpsuits reflect YSL’s timeless suede Saharienne jacket with a utilitarian undercurrent throughout, last seasons roll neck become slim fitting and layered under waistcoats, while fringing adorns jackets and accessories alike.
While us girls may be channeling American Hustle style slinky jumpsuits, let’s just hope the Irish men don’t try and bring back Bradley Coopers perm..
