1970's Revival

It seems we're all looking for a bit of vintage in our wardrobes these days. The 1970's retro look is now showing up all over - from catwalk to high street. Recently, fashion has adopted looks from the 20's and 30's,  and we have all seen the rise (and fall) of the eighties fashion come back (eek!), but this season it's the seventies that fashion is embracing. Designers have charmed the runways with some long awaited hippy romance. So here's a little romantic 1970's inspiration to get you ready for Spring. 
 Crochet. One of the hottest trends for this season which is showing up on sweaters, tops, and swimwear. Hesitant on wearing a woven bikini? Try pairing a loose crochet sweater and high-waisted shorts over your bathing suit for a cute retro beach look.
 Floppy hats. Wide brimmed hats have taken over this Spring. Be brave and try sporting this trend on the streets rather than just the beach. 
Sheer button-up shirts. Tied or tucked in at the waist, button-up shirts are ideal for Spring. Try pairing this trend with oversized glasses, a fun statement necklace, or a cute floppy hat. 
 (LWD) Little White dresses. Feminine details such as lace, broderie anglaise, frills, and draping are all a must for white dresses for Spring. 
Wrap Dresses.  Diane Von Furstenberg invented the wrap dress in 1974, and since then it has become a staple item for every women's closet with its figure flattering cut that takes you from day to night in style.
Denim: Wide-leg and flared. The most universally flattering cut of denim is back! Put your skinny jeans aside and rock some flared denim this Spring, for legs that go on for miles pair your jeans with wedges for hidden height.
Going the Distance. Maxi dresses, maxi skirts, coats, and pants with floor skimming hemlines.
