A Subtle Bit of 70s Style: How To Work The Trend

I thought I would channel some inner 70's chick this week on my blog, I think a couple of style shake ups are needed for me this year. I really want to start expanding my style horizons and try out new shapes and cuts and try and bring you more wearable versions of high street and catwalk trends. Chunky heeled boots and 70s vibes have been really popular in the latter half of last year on the catwalk and in high street stores, but for me it was all a little too much for my personal taste. However a-line skirts are a really sweet way to incorporate a 70s edge to a look without it being a full on blast from the past. 

Black turtlenecks are a staple in my day to day style, so incorporating something I love into a new style of outfit is something I like to do if I am not wanting to delve straight into the style and want to give it my own personal edge and make the look work around my own likes and dislikes. I paired the turtle neck with a suede tan a-line skirt that fits like a dream, I absolutely love this shade as it has a really beautiful warmth about it, which I wanted to bring out with my little red Lady Dior Mini, the burnt red lipstick and the red heels on my boots. The high ankle boots were the icing on the retro cake for this look, and as these are probably one of my current favourite pair of boots, it make the look even more perfect. A-line skirts are one of the classic skirt shapes and really suit so many body types whether you're tall or short (like me). They aren't all 70s however, there are some really stunning ones available online at ASOS and Boohoo that just allow you to wear a skirt without it being really tight, or too girly like a skater skirt would be.
