When they waved goodbye to platforms and cheesecloth skirts more than four decades ago little did anyone know that the 1970s would be such an enduring influence in fashion. With ABBA back (kind of) and the longest summer since 1976 a happy memory, the 70s vibe lives on in flares, jumpsuits and dungarees, and that’s great because dressing like Elvis in Vegas just makes you feel that little bit more outrageous.
Miss Selfridge’s new collection has it all for anyone who wants to get the vibe. There’s a shimmering jumpsuit in which you can live out your Studio 54 fantasy, flares and jacket that Ali McGraw may have worn in the 70s weepie Love Story, and I love the spangly jumpsuit pictured here. It’s perfect for the party season. Rainbow Sequin Jumpsuit, £99, missselfridge.com
