From Catwalk to Highstreet, 70's Inspired Styling

Over the past few months I've been browsing through the various trends from the AW15 fashion week shows. I love looking through all the different designs and I noticed a big trend for AW15 was 70's prints and styles, which I'm already a huuuuge fan of. 

Rewind back to September when the SS15 trends were introduced on the catwalk, 70s was again a big contender with bright retro prints and styles playing a big role. It seems like 70's styling will always remain a key part of fashion culture. (Hurray!). Here are some of my favourite looks from the spring/summer 15 shows:


London FW SS15 - House Of Holland


Paris FW SS15: Saint Laurent



Milan FW SS15Blumarine, Max Mara, Dolce & Gabanna & Marni

You don't actually have to look far (or in the very expensive places!) to try recreate the 70's Fashion revival this spring - as I recently found out on a trip to Zara who have totally nailed the trend. Here are two particular pieces I picked up from there which I thought were very 70s-esque. 

The Cut Out Circle Print Playsuit













Cut Out Printed Playsuit - £29.99 Zara / White Top - Boohoo (bought last year) / Tan Satchel Bag - £17.99 New Look / Brown heels - £19.99 New Look / Brown World Map Watch* - £10 Tallulah's Threads

Sadly we're not quite at sleeveless weather yet so I decided to layer this up with a white top which had pretty lace sleeve detailing, and some brown accessories which tied the outfit together nicely. 

Last spring I invested in some beauuutiful white roller skates which unfortunately had me flat on my arse so many times I kinda gave up on them. However, I thought I'd get them out for you again this spring and create a super retro (and nerdy!) look by styling them with this outfit! Just in case, you know, you're looking for some "how to style my roller skates" inspiration? ......

Sadly, I still need a lot of practise using them before I can manage to not look like a crazy woman wearing them. One day. 






Red And White 70's Floral Dress














Red Floral Dress - £29.99 Zara / White Bag - Forever21 / Black Bodysuit Top - £12 Boohoo / Necklace - £2.99 Primark / Black Boots - £35 Miss Selfridge

Again, for this outfit I decided to layer a top underneath to save me from freezing over in the colder spring days. I just love the bright bold print and how the white in the bag makes the white flowers pop! Certainly a new spring outfit favourite for me :)

Hope you enjoyed reading, what do you make of the 70's revival trend? Is it your thing or do you think it should be left in the past? I love it when you leave me your blog links so please do in the comments below & let me know your thoughts! 

Until next time..

    And, I used to love roller skating when I was younger.
    I think I'm going to dip my toe in the water regarding the 70's trend. :)
