It’s official, the seventies are back.
If the idea of taking inspiration from the seventies has you running for the hills, then don’t panic. This trend is perfect for autumn, honest. Chunky knits, cord trousers, long dresses and boots – they’re all perfect for kicking though leaves and pretending you’re one of Jilly Cooper’s plucky heroines.*
Today, we need to talk about the seventies-inspired maxi dress. It’s soft and flowing in every sense – with long sleeves and an even longer hemline.
I spotted this amazing Ossie Clark-inspired dress in Peacocks and just had to try it on. It’s length is slightly impractical, but it feels so glamorous. At £25, it was coming home with me, never mind its practicality.
It’s perfect for autumn evenings out. Unbutton, or button up, according to the occasion.
I’m wearing the roomy size 10. I’m 5 ft 4″ and need heels with it, otherwise it’s too long. Wear with shiny brown leather boots for the ultimate seventies look.
Tempted to try one? Here are some more of my favourites…
