The Modern 70s


The 70s trend has been floating around for a little while now, slowly creeping into the catwalks with suede textures and light denims, then more outwardly with fringing and printed chiffon. There are some areas of the 70s which I'm still nervous to try or I'm just not feeling - but I thought I'd share a way I've incorporated the trend into my wardrobe this season. Here are three pieces which I've paired together for a modern twist on the 70s vibe.   

I loved this Camel Suedette High Neck Sweater the moment I saw it on ASOS. It has a suede-like fabric on the front with a light knit on the back, so it really brings together the whole 'mixing textures' trend too. The high neck gives it a sophisticated feel whilst the camel colour brings in a key 70s colour. Often suedette tops can be quite unflattering on the chest area but this one is nicely structured with seams to not appear unshapely. There's also a front panel stitched on the front to keep it a little edgy

The jeans I've paired with this knit brings in the lighter denim I mentioned earlier. I love the true blue denim on these ASOS Ankle Grazer Jeans I purchased last month. It cuts at just the right point on the ankle - and they are so comfortable to wear! Not too tight, not overly saggy, but another perfectly relaxed fit. The colour is perfect too, not too dark and not too light (I find pale blue jeans can be unflattering on my legs). The thing I would say is I do need a belt with these jeans even though I bought my regular size - they're a little loose on the waist!


The Black Pointed Pixie Shoe is actually something I've featured on my blog before. I'm absolutely loving this style of shoes for Spring. It has an open back (like sandals) but an ankle strap to keep the shoe secure and comfortable. The heel is short so it still gives the laid back look of the 70s whilst still adding a bit of a chic twist to the overall outfit. If you're not feeling the pointed  shoe (it's the more modern twist I was getting at with this outfit), a pair of sandal wedges would really complete the look!

What trends are you loving this Spring?

  1. Love this combo! I've been a little scared of this trend too, but I have just bought some fringed suede sandals, so I guess that should do it :)

  4. Ooh, I love your choices! And for the most part, I'm a fan of the eighties trends (well, some haha). I usually wear skinny jeans but I really love flare-leg pants, and those pointy-toe shoes you posted are adorable!
