70's Highstreet Style

With the 70's trend there are definitely pieces that standout. The MUST HAVES to get yourself 70's ready are the Flare, A maxi skirt or 3, some palazzo trousers with cute blouses tucked in. The Kimono is a staple piece for any 70's wardrobe along with a palazzo style jumpsuit. Everything is in muted 70s colours such as Maroon, Navy, Mustard, Hunter Green and the nude shades such as beigh and taupe with a splash of orange here and there. Fabrics are Denim, cord and suede with floaty fabrics pulling the look together. I love River Island's selection of 70's inspired pieces which mix all the best areas of the trend into one fantastic collection. They even have their Chelsea Girl section which is inspired by 60's and 70's style English fashion. Ok so I am bias, I adore River Island, slightly obsessed you might say but the clothes that are available are of such good quality and alot of the pieces are reminiscent of true high fashion. It has been said that their upcoming Autumn Winter Advertising is reminiscent of a Chloe campaign and it wasn't me that said that ;) Anyway here are my highstreet picks for the trend

As I said above the selection of 70's style fashion on the highstreet is pretty good but River Island really does seem to be a one stop shop for this trend. I know I'll be in there very soon spending my birthday vouchers stocking up for the Autumn with fabulous 70's pieces to join the few bits I've already got. I can't wait. So what did you think of my picks for this style? Are you loving River Island this season as much as I am?Stay tuned for Accessorize the 70's a fabulous selection of accessories for this Spring Summer Trend which is carrying us right into this upcoming season.
