Get groovy with a fringed handbag

Fashion trend: 70s retro!

by Hannah Ikin -

It's no secret that fashion often comes back full circle, which is why "retro" will always be cool. Recently, we've been noticing a trend for all things 1970s. Arty prints, high waisted trousers and fringe galore have been bringing some old-school charm to the runways recently. You heard it here first - get ready for some serious peace and love in Spring 2015!

70s chic!

A world away from the graphic cuts of the swinging sixties, the 1970s were all about folksy vibes and color blocking. Think floral print dresses and suede jackets. Forget your favorite straight leg jeans and get ready to dust off those flared trousers (the bigger the flare, the better)!

Don't be shy to mix and match your prints this spring! In terms of color, steer clear of bright and vivid shades in favor of beige, camel and brown shades to avoid looking garish. Want to bring a modern edge to your 70s retro outfit? Just add a leather jacket for a totally wearable look.

Where this trend is concerned, you can really have some fun with your accessories! Oversized sunglasses, patterned silk scarves and bold headbands are all appropriate in this context! For a modern "Woodstock" look, why not invest in a bag with fringe?

Of course, your 70s look can't be complete without a relaxed, wavy hairstyle and, in an ideal world, bangs too! If you dare, add some bright color pop makeup for a truly authentic effect!

So there you have it, some hot-off-the-runway fashion inspiration. The question is, will you be working the 1970s vibe this spring? Go on... we dare you to get groovy!
