Slices of the ’70s

ME - - News -

A va­ri­ety of words come to mind when think­ing about ’70s fash­ion — bold, bright, os­ten­ta­tious, hip­pies. El­e­ments of this colour­ful decade are hit­ting in­ter­na­tional run­ways and fash­ion bou­tiques this sea­son with bold mixed prints and mixed pat­terns, fringed vests and bags, suede skirts, desert boots and loafers. While the ’70s is of­ten as­so­ci­ated with bright coloured fab­rics, de­sign­ers started opt­ing for more earthy tones, with lots of browns, greys and blacks in the lat­ter part of the decade. This sea­son, the ’70s trend will not dis­crim­i­nate and shop­pers will find both bright and earthy tones on the cloth­ing racks. If you’re keen to try on some ’70s style, fash­ion ex­perts rec­om­mend stick­ing to one ‘throw-back piece’ per out­fit to avoid look­ing a lit­tle kitschy.
