Give a nod to nostalgia and incorporate one of this season's hottest trends - the '70s - into your wardrobe. This season, catwalks across the globe are returning to all things retro with designers showing off an array of boho-inspired maxi dresses, faux fur and fringe details.

Get inspiration from boho-loving celebs like Alessandra Ambrosio, Nicole Richie and Sienna Miller. While dressing head-to-toe '70s can look a little OTT, try out the trend in a subtler way by adding these key details into your wardrobe.

Say Yes To Suede

Suede was a big fixture on the SS15 catwalks, seen at runway shows including Jason Wu and Gucci. Think suede skirts and coordinating jackets or simple shift dresses to give your look a seventies vibe. Suede accessories such as strappy sandals, killer heels or a cute clutch are a great way to add elements of the trend into your everyday look.

Flirt With Fringing

As the festival and summer season approaches, there’s never been a better time to incorporate some '70s style fringing into your wardrobe. For an effortless and easy way to wear the look, simply add a fringed bag or ankle booties to your off-duty basics. Want to go a step further? Look out for waistcoats or tops with fringe detailing on the hem.

Pull Out The Printed Maxis

Printed maxi skirts and dresses in floaty fabrics are a great throwback, but thanks to celebrity fans including Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe, they’re still oh-so wearable. A nice change to your trusty jeans and basic tops during the warmer months, printed maxi dresses straddle the line between dressy and casual perfectly. Team with flat sandals and delicate layered jewelry to create your SS15 uniform.

Have Fun With Faux Fur

Faux fur is a key component of the seventies trend and was spotted on many of the SS15 runways. While faux fur is trickier to incorporate into your look during the warmer months, it is still possible. Take your cue from Tommy Hilfiger and try out the seasonal fabric in a lighter hue. With the spring collection’s launch earlier each year, there’s no better excuse to push the boundaries.

Go Back To Bootcut

Curvy ladies, rejoice! Skinny jeans are out this season and flared shapes are back. Bootcut jeans flatter a fuller figure by balancing out the hips and creating a sleeker shape. Slim girls can also create the illusion of a curvier frame by embracing the flared jean. Team with a tucked in shirt or basic jersey tee and statement jewelry for foolproof results.
