Spring/Summer 2011 Trend: 70’s Glamour…Clogs, Flares and Chiffon Blouses!

Submitted by on Thursday, 24 March 2011 | No Comment

The ’70s revival has begun and I can promise it will be bigger and better than the decade itself. Spring/Summer 2011 has brought back the ’70s glamour and this season we are not holding back.

Chiffon blouses, floral prints and scallopped hems have returned with a modern twist. Think ‘flower power’ but in the modern day. This trend comes with an vintage touch which can spice up anybody’s wardrobe!  The adorable yet fashionable ’70s inspired look is so easy to pull off with all the clothes available in stores currently.

Clogs, Wedged Sandals and Loafers

Okay, so starting with the shoes. Clumpy clogs, chunky wedged sandals and  tassled tan loafers are your key pieces this season which can be styled with everything from palazzo pants to dungarees. Go for wooden heels on strappy shoes and remember fashion rules are there to be broken. Just like last year’s double denim comeback, socks and sandals aren’t for those with no sense of style, oh no! Team your chunky shoes with knitted or lace socks for a ’70s look that will be so chic!

Flares and Midi Skirts

Skinny jeans and bodycon skirts were soooo last year. Update your wardrobe with a pair of flares. That’s not to say go all out for the bell-bottomed look that is enough to make anybody cringe, but a simple pair of light denim flares is enough to add a vintage twist to your look this spring. As for skirts, think ‘hippy’ and ‘romantic’. The ‘new length’ is classic yet young and half way between mini and maxi. Thats right girls, raid your mother’s wardrobe because this season is all about the ‘midi’.  Flowy midi skirts are perfect for those summery days yet so comfortable and classic. Keep the trend high-waisted to allow a figure flattering look.

Chiffon Blouses and Ethnic Prints

Chiffon blouses can be worn with just about everything and are one of the biggest trends this season. From oversized to cropped and floral to neutral just about anything with the vintage vibe is acceptable. Try ruffled blouses with denim cut-offs or a pussybow chiffon top with a A-line skirt to stay ahead of the fashion world. Ethnic prints and delicate shapes are definetly a key idea to try when searching for the hippy inside of you this season.

And as for accessories, think retro. Try something new like a hat: bowler, floppy or straw for the festival glamour teamed with oversized shades. Wooden bangles, aztec jewellery and classic rings will get you a top fashion score from the experts. So don’t be shy, let your ’70s sensation shine through!
