Good afternoon everyone, todays’s post is on styling a 70’s inspired look. I must admit I do love 70’s fashion especially bellbottom jeans. There are plenty of trends from that era that still hold up today. The likes of boho blouses, midi skirts, mini dresses, corduroy, velvet and of course bellbottom jeans!
Also during Spring/Summer I do love to rock a more bohemian chic vibe. Another one of my favourite 70’s outfit is to wear a mini dress and some over-the-knee-boots. This is one of the easiest ways to do the 70’s style, however if mini dresses are not your thing you could always switch it for a longer dress.
So lets begin with this mini dress which is perfect for making a statement. It is from Rotate Birger Christensen at Net-A-Porter and you would have seen me wearing it as a top in one of my previous posts HERE. Love how versatile this dress is and the sleeves are just absolutely gorgeous, it is gathered along the yoke to create extra volume. Now there are some beautiful mini dresses out there to get your hands on, and like I said earlier if mini’s are not your thing then don’t worry I have you covered too.
OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
Next and I paired my mini dress with some over-the-knee-boots. These black boots are from Kurt Geiger and the style of the boot is called Whirl, they have a slight slouch to them, which I don’t mind at all. They actually stay up and I don’t have to keep pulling them up like some other pairs that I have worn previously. The material is in this gorgeous butter-soft suede with a smooth lining which adds to the comfort. This tall boot is detailed only with light tonal stitching, and has tapered mid heels which are very comfortable to walk in. It also has pointed toes which create a chic silhouette and works rather well with my mini dress. I loved them so much that after my first pair become battered I purchased two more. Ideally a white pair of over-the -knee-boots would be great for a 70’s inspired outfit but it is not necessary.
MIDI OR MAXI FLORAL DRESSES
Finally a midi or mini floral dress would also work rather well if mini’s dresses are not your thing. Go for a delicate design or if you don’t mind then by all means go for a bold print midi dress. Why not recreate the 70’s style with a flowing and billowing maxi. Nothing evokes Bohemian culture more than this relaxed silhouette. Pair the dress with your over-the-knee-boots and a saddle bag worn cross body for the modern take on this trend.
