Blast From The Past

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

We’ve got a bit of a love/hate re­la­tion­ship with the 1970s. on the one hand, it gave us Stu­dio 54 and all the glam fash­ion that came with. on the other, the decade re­sulted in co­pi­ous amounts of cord and an unadul­ter­ated need to colour ev­ery­thing an un­sightly shade of burnt orange or brown. How­ever, thanks to a very se­lec­tive edit on the high street’s part, we’re able to in­vite the best bits of the (of­ten ques­tion­able) 70s back into our homes. From plush arm­chairs and wal­nut nest­ing ta­bles to colour­ful ce­ram­ics and daz­zling drink sets, it’s time to get ret­ro­spec­tive.

‘The se­cret to nail­ing the 70s vibe is to avoid matchy-matchy items. Break up bright pieces with dashes of wood and pas­tel tones to cre­ate a multi-lay­ered look.’ Max­ine eggen­berger, Fash­ion news edi­tor
