70s fashion

Believe it or not, 70s fashion is back! Think bell bottom jeans, paisley print and tie dye! But that doesn’t mean you have to start digging through your mom’s hand-me-downs and start wearing head-to-toe 70s! This summer 70s fashion is getting a modern twist with clean lines and subtle prints. If you’re not sure how to avoid over doing this trend then our top 70s fashion picks will definitely point you in the right direction. We’ve got the low-down on how to wear this trend and the Hollywood celebrities who are loving it.

1. Be a DIY Diva in Fabulous Tie Dye

Tie Dye isn’t just for hippies – this summer fashionistas are stepping up the glam factor of tie dye and wearing it everywhere from on the streets to the red carpet. Print is a key element to the 70s look but it’s important to stick to one print piece at a time. You don’t want to look like you’re on your way to a fancy dress party!

We love this Cache Vest from Indiana by Freda, available from AdoreThis.co.za because it tackles two top trends at once – vests are huge this summer so combining it with a chic tie dye print is just what you need to look and feel like a fashion insider. Pair it with a flirty summer dress and flats and you look like you just stepped out of the pages of your favourite magazine.

2. Be a Paisley Princess

Everyone loves a bit of paisley in the summer time, it’s a timeless fabric of note and this summer it’s coming back in a big way. Forget paisley scarfs, the pretty print is now being incorporated into sleek and tailored, outfits for the modern woman. When trying paisley for the first time, it’s best to choose pieces that compliment your figure as strong patterns will only highlight problem areas. A dress is always a good choice as it’s an all-in-one outfit – which means you won’t have to deal with trying to match it to whatever is already in your wardrobe.

3. Embrace the Sheer Joy!

Sheer blouses were huge in the 70s and they are back this spring! For a flirty look try pairing a sheer, paisley-printed blouse with a pair of khaki shorts (another big trend this summer) or, for a more sophisticated look, pair a loose fitting, paisley print blouse with white skinny jeans and a pair of comfy high heels.
