At the intersection between seventies style and seventies fancy dress, you’ll find me hop, skipping and twirling around in this retro inspired get up. Bell sleeves- check, (faux) suede – check, tan mules – check. And who can ignore the palette of saturated red, sepia tones and rich rust? Yes, it might blur the line between a trend and playing dress up, but when costume looks this good who really cares?
With summer slowly ebbing away – despite the fact we had that little heatwave yesterday here in the UK – it’s time to make the most of bold colours before returning to muted palettes of smoke, charcoal and carbon. But thanks to boho trends filtering into the new season, these separates can easily be interchanged with other pieces when the temperature drops. Roll-necks and A-line mini skirts are a classic combination, and this floral blouse begs to be thrown on under a pumpkin coloured coat. Just add skinny jeans, cropped kick flares, or if you’re really into the retro revival, floor sweeping flares.
