Sophisticated 70’s is Hot

The 70's Look is Hot in 2011

The 1970s look is hot in 2011.

’70s sophistication by day

By day it’s all about clean yet voluminous silhouettes, and earthy ’70s colour palettes. Look for:

  • High waisted wide-leg pants or flares, smartly belted in.
  • Neat bow-blouses, especially ones with billowing or bishop sleeves. Particularly great are fabrics like silk and satin.
  • Roll neck sweaters tucked into pants or skirts. Add to the ’70s effect by layering over beaded necklaces or a vest.
  • For those more daring, a pair of hot pants are the ultimate ’70s item.
  • A smart printed jumpsuit is another great alternative.

’70s sophistication by night

By night the ’70s sophisticate turns into the ultimate socialite, with look-at-me shimmering fabrics and cuts that either tightly hug or sensually drape over the body.

  • Choose high sheen fabrics with a ’70s disco-inspired edge, like lurex or silk; anything with a metallic thread.
  • Add a ruffled neckline under a brocade blazer or tuxedo jacket, paired with a sharp pair of pants.
  • Long, slinky gowns with draping, low necklines or dress slits are the ultimate in ’70s night time glamour.

With the return of the ladylike dress, big hair look is still hot, hot, hot with sexy curls, waves and buns. 

 The look is voluminous and elegant. 

 Think Jackie O, Ursula Andress or the ultimate sex-kitten icon, Brigitte Bardot, and for the ultimate in colour with sexy lowlights, think Goldwell!

The silhouettes of the 1950s and 1960s make a strong return, with shapes that accentuate curves and foster femininity.

 A hip-hugging sheath dress with a below-the-knee hem is the ultimate in hourglass dressing, while the full circle skirt and dress remain at the core of the trend. For Spring 2011 introduce fresh colours, prints and light summery fabrics. 

 Say hello to curves and longer hemlines as the skirt and dress silhouettes of the late ’50s / early ’60s swing their way back onto the scene.
