How To Wear: The 70’s Trend AW16


Hippy goes haute this AW16 with the return of the 1970s trend.

From free-spirited folk to retro glamour, the 70’s trend is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. With suede over-the-knee boots and tassel trimmed ankle boots, this season brings a myriad of retro bohemian silhouettes to suit every style. When it comes to the 70’s trend you can be as bold or as subtle as you like – so if you haven’t jumped on the 70’s bandwagon yet, now is the perfect opportunity.

Still not convinced? Here’s how to nail the trend that everybody has been talking about.


Traverse the eras with tassel trimmings and retro fringing. Jackets, dresses and
accessories are fringed to the max – including your shoes. Luxurious leather tassels and
fringing are exaggerated and add a stylish flair to simple ankle boot silhouettes.
Think Kate Hudson’s character from the iconic film ‘Almost Famous’.


Wear a parade of suede this AW/16. Suede leathers are heavily pigmented in the latest
camel and ochre hues. Button down skirts and mini dresses are a fail-safe option when it
comes to nailing the 70’s vibe. Both high-leg and ankle boots adopt the suede trend
and are made-over in a heavenly selection of earthy tones.

Flared denim and sleeves are sure to get you in the retro mood! From bell-bottom jeans to
billowing sleeves, this seasons boot collection also receives the flare treatment.
Chunky wooden stacked heels are modified with a subtly flared silhouette.
Look to Jane Birkin for ultimate style inspiration.
