The 70s look has slowly been creeping into my wardrobe; it’s not a natural fit for me as I’m more of a 90s minimalist girl at heart. In my mind the 70s was quite a girly time for fashion and I’m definitely more of a tomboy; that’s not to say that I don’t wear dresses or like to feel feminine, I just go about it with a little more restrain than most. I look for the textures and colour palettes in new trends as a way to integrate them into my wardrobe without it looking like a switch has flicked in my brain. Currently I love the way suede has dominated both the high street and luxury markets – it’s really just another form of my leather obsession. Integrating tan and burgundy into my minimalist wardrobe hasn’t been hard either, I just don’t wear them at the same time.
So where am I going with this? I thought I would share with you how I introduce trends into my wardrobe without reinventing my style every time. For this outfit I’ve chosen a couple of pieces that could have been inspired by the 70s, a delicate white Vilshenko shirt dress and a deep wine red suede tote bag by Desa, and then I’ve added some fairly simple pieces to keep the look inline with my style. I’ve not strayed from the designers I regularly feature like Isabel Marant, Janesse Leoné and Maria Black to create this outfit. Every single piece I’ve featured here I would love to buy (if I could).
Do you stick to your style like glue or do you like to try a new look each season?
