A Blast from the Past

It rings true when they say all trends eventually come back around. As the seasons change and AW15 looms over us we are taking it back in time and embracing the true meaning of the word #throwback with covetable fashion trends.

You may not want to relive the ‘good ole days’ but a revival of the 70’s and 80’s are in full swing according to the latest catwalks – I mean all you have to do is take a look at Venice Film Festival where Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson was dubbed best dressed woman after wearing a high collared 70’s inspired floral dress!

We’ve been looking at 3 top trends perfect for AW15, keep reading…

The 70’s
70’s style has been in full swing for the past couple of months and its going nowhere as the weather cools down. 70’s bohemia was perfect for festival season but now it can be layered up for a super warm look as the weather turns.

Introduce flared jeans or A-line skirts as the base of your outfits and then layer comfy warm coloured jumpers and duster jackets or flowy waist coats on top with knee high boots.

But don’t worry if you’re not totally convinced this trend can be worn by anyone, even if it’s just through your accessories. Take a look at our moodboard on how you can revolutionise your wardrobe!

The 80’s
I guess we are not only taking style tips from the 70’s. Influential catwalk shows were filled with 80’s style, including colour block knits and fashion combo’s reflecting characters on the set of hit 80’s show Dynasty and The Cosby Show.

Revive 80’s style in your jewellery box with gold hoop earrings, and jewellery incorporating bright gemstones set in statement designs.

Take cue from pop icon Madonna, who was adored not only for her music but funky style. Try stacking your bracelets to truly covet this trend.

You can also revive the 80’s with handbags, check out our new bags that are perfectly versatile, this shoulder bag with gold chain strap is a great pick!

Glitter Galore
Another predicted trend is glitter. We love to make life sparkle, so it’s a great trend to covet as we’ll have many events to wear glittery ensembles – Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties. However, pair things down with this trend as it can become too over bearing.

If you want luxurious sparkle, Diamonds is always a first good choice, but a more affordable option would be Crackle Quartz, a great option if you also want to incorporate indulgent colour!

These trends may be a bit daunting for everyday wear but, the 70’s and 80’s era is totally on trend and great for the party season –  think Christmas Party if nothing else.

Which trend will you be trying?
