The 70’s style is extremely popular this season, and you’ll recognise it from all the fringe details, earthy colours, suede material, and flares – flared jeans and flared sleeves. And don’t forget the sloppy lace-up style and native indian influences with feathers, leather and metal accessories.
This two piece co-ord set in a tan faux suede just screams 1970’s retro style with its cut, colour and material. It’s the Charisse Suede Crop Scallop Two Piece from Luxemme, and to be honest with you I felt like a blonde Pocahontas the first time I tried it on.
I decided to play on the Pocahontas inspiration, and have gone for a bit of native indian influences to match this crop top and high waisted shorts. The Disney princess herself accessorised her tan suede co-ord set with an earthy red tattoo and a dark turquoise necklace, and these are the colours I've opted for to complement my Luxemme outfit.
Why stick to one ring when you can wear one on each finger?
Since turquoise is my favourite colour when it comes to jewellery I've got multiple rings in this hue that all go with each other in a mix-match sort of way.
The zigzag style ring on my middle finger is actually from the 70's and is a hand-me-down from my mum.
These beige suede wedge sandals from Deichmann have been my best friends this summer! They're extremely comfortable, and they go with basically anything - especially this two piece set. Bingo!
A loose braid and some reddish lipgloss to emphasise the style...
...and the turquise necklace is of course a must when Pocahontas is your source of inspiration!
I've even added some quirky handmade silver earrings with cracked turquise stones. These were bought at a market in Dubrovnik a few years ago, and I absolutely love how unique they are!
A dark turquise handbag from Accessorize finishes off my native indian 70's look.
You obviously don't have to wear these pieces as a set, but I'm thinking the top would look good with a high waisted skirt and a cardigan now when the autumn has arrived. The shorts can easily be transformed into a more wintery item by pairing them with thick tights and knee high boots.
What are your thoughts on co-ord sets and 70's inspired fashion?
How would you wear it?
