70's Trend ft. Newlook

Monday, July 20, 2015

The 70's trend seems to be everywhere recently from the SS15 Saint Laurent, Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry and House of Holland shows and LFW 2015 to the high street and also in the blogosphere. Fringing, denim, bold floral prints, flares, suede and clashing prints are here to stay for spring/summer 2015. 

When I was asked if I wanted to take part in the New look Fashion Timeline campaign, I said yes instantly - I chose the 70's fashion time period as it is so popular now and it's a little out of my comfort zone. I've created two looks which feature various items from New look. You can check out the New look 70's trend picks, here

Outfit One - Suede Skirt
Look One: The Suede Skirt

Boots & Tights: New look

Firstly, I have to say this is my favourite look! I love the suede skirt even though it is a little out of my fashion comfort zone. The outfit is inspired by LFW street style, the gorgeous blogger Amy from The Little Magpie and stylist Megan from Pages By Megan. I love the versatility of this skirt, it can be paired with a white tee, tights and tan ankle boots as I have it or you can add some over the knee boots or throw on a denim jacket. It's a great transition piece for spring/summer but it would also be perfect layered with chunky sweaters and over the knee socks in the colder, autumnal months. 

Outfit Two - Newlook Playsuit
Look Two: The Festival Playsuit 

Wedges & Bag: New look

My second 70's inspired outfit is much more out of my comfort zone, I didn't have a playsuit in my wardrobe, until now. I love the way this playsuit fits, it is light weight, comfortable and airy but it isn't baggy - it is actually quite structured. I think this playsuit would be fantastic for festivals because it is so light weight and travel friendly and it can be paired with wellies, a floppy hat and sunglasses; also during the evenings you can throw on an oversized sweater and boots. I love the earthy shades too although New look have so many to choose from including paisley and floral prints, demin and crochet playsuits (here). 

I've created a short video lookbook as a summary of the outfits, including a three 70's festival inspired outfits - excuse the random poses and awkward looks, I'm not used to making ootd or lookbook videos! Check out the New look blog for more information on the fashion timeline.

What do you think of the outfits I created? Are you loving the 70's trend? Are there any New look 70's picks on your wish list?
