It appears the ‘70s fashion trends are coming right back for the year of 2015, while they have been peeking about throughout 2014. Buttery silks, luxe trousers, honey-colored furs, suede belts, flares and bell-bottom pants, jumpsuits, crochet knits, billowing peasant dresses, rainbow stripes, and fringes have all been seen sashaying about over the past year and we wonder how long it will last. Apparently, the spring/ summer 2015 fashion trends seen during fashion week attest to the longer life the ‘70s fashions have this time around. Then again, we doubt it will last a decade once more, though we can surely hope!
In these designs we are looking at everything from funky sunglasses with thick rims or aviator looks, high collar or unbuttoned blouses showing off a little bit of skin at the chest, to comfortable wide legged and high waist pants alongside flashy pinks kaleidoscope metallic skirts and pearly white jumpsuits that remind us of chic clowns or perhaps a highborn lady’s Middle Age underwear. The most elegant of these styles are the interpretation of the ‘70s fashion trend by Matthew Williamson and Derek Lam, giving professional attire a new look. Wearing the blouses either plain white and high collared or floral with a deep V giving a sexy edge to the otherwise conservative look, we can certainly imagine these two as part of our daily attire when heading off to a meeting, both for business and pleasure.
The flashy looks by House of Holland may be great party wear as they certainly speak loudly of fun, while the Dries Van Noten version of the seventies chic we may not want to be sporting around town unless we’re heading off to get some groceries done. Honestly that last piece we cannot imagine where we might wear. We certainly love the strappy sandals coiling around the ankles and lower calves though! It is without a doubt a piece we would love to add to our new year’s shoe closet.
White eggshell embossed dresses we spotted at Alberta Ferretti seem to be in style, with a distinctly nightgown look about them that gives an ethereal light to the attire. We most certainly did miss the bellbottom pants from Paul & Joe though, especially when available in earth shades, as they give our legs better shape with their tightness in the thighs and waist but loose calf regions. Whereas the cigarette look of Gucci shows off every last curve, this allows for better body proportions. The ‘70s certainly had these available for a while, and we hope the trend lasts a decade once again.
The floral brighter dresses of Karen Walker do great with darker denim flares. Fashionable cowgirls might be seen walking the streets as well and that is fine by us! Simple white blouses look adorable tucked into seventies denim Capri pants, complemented with camel colored boots for the cowgirl feel.
Whether it’s about the disco style of Saint Laurent, the flirty denim shorts of Paul & Joe or the enchanting bohemian mood of Emilio Pucci, we love the newest seventies fashion trends for spring/summer 2015 to bits and we want them to stay here as long as possible for us to look this amazing on any occasion!
