Trend Report: A Nod To The 60’s & 70’s

Fashion is looking to the past for inspiration this season, taking a nod from the 60’s & 70’s, to include bold prints, unique fabrications and easy-to-wear shift dresses as essentials in any fashion girl’s wardrobe.

This trend has been key throughout all the international 2019 shows, with the seventies worked into spicy Pantones, bell sleeved tops, slouchy trousers, and statement-making jackets.

The new collections take inspiration from the sixties through easy-to-wear shift dresses and bold printed tops. Simplicity is the name of the game with sleek and streamlined styles re-vamped in bold and on-trend colour combinations. Show off your 1960’s girl style by rocking bold prints, bright colours and short hems that can be mixed and matched with streamlined styles for a more on-trend look.

Maxi dresses, bell sleeved tops, tunics, suede jackets and shorts are signalling a subtle retro inspiration, that can be easily modernised with the right outfit additions and accessories. Play up the seventies feel with a broad brimmed hat, suede shoes and fringed bags or accessories, or keep your sixties prints clean with nude shoes and a matching bag or clutch.

Our top tips for creating a modern retro look are:

Choose Styles That Are Trendy and In Fashion:

This helps to modernise your look. Try shift dresses with pockets, contrast fabrication panelling or luscious maxi dresses in seventies inspired hues.

Focus On Details:

Choose one statement vintage piece and let it shine! Keep the rest of your accessories or pieces neutral so you don’t over do it.

Add Structure:

When in doubt always add structure. A classic cut blazer or tailored pants work to instantly add a sophisticated touch to a bold piece.
