With its iconic flares and psychedelic florals, its groovy prints and jean dresses, the ‘70s was the golden age of feel-good ‘fits. It was the decade that had it all, with many of the trends still influencing our wardrobes and shopping habits today. Case in point: the club-friendly clogs we never imagined we’d be wearing and yet here we are, toe-tapping to the tune of WAP on a Saturday night.
After a tumultuous 18 months spent living (correction: barely existing) in sweatpants and a Zoom top, you’ve likely overdone it on the ol’ comfies by now and want to treat every damn day like a catwalk. Amen to that! After crisis comes celebration and celebrate with carefree ‘n’ colourful lewks we will. Anyone else self-medicating on mood-boosting clobber and offsetting the misery that was 2020 with outfits that are just one more lilac crochet vest away from careening into fancy dress / toddler territory? Same.
In this week’s shop post, we’re dialling up the fun and channelling serious Cher meets Stevie Nicks energy. Whether you’re here for bell-bottoms with straight-up disco vibes or you’re looking to dabble with the occasional tassel fringe or boho maxi dress, you’ll be pleased to see this edit provides a very happy mashup of throwback pieces to cater to every ‘70s mood.
From Saturday by Megan Ellaby to Free People and House of Sunny, read on for your hit of sartorial serotonin.
