The ’70s trend was everywhere for spring/summer 2015 and it’s not going anywhere for autumn/winter either! From shaggy gilets to prints, patterns and floppy hats – there’s something for everyone. I went to H&M in MacDonagh Junction to find some trend-ticking pieces, and as usual, I wasn’t let down! I find H&M such a great store for grabbing those on-trend pieces without breaking the bank!
I’ve been on the lookout for a suedette skirt for awhile and this one ticks so many boxes for me – the buttons down the front, the pockets – it’s just perfect!

Because of the neutral tone in the skirt I wanted to lift it with some colourful print and pattern. When I saw this Aztec print blouse I knew it was ideal. It’s a slightly cropped style, so it’s perfect for tucking
into this high-waisted skirt as there isn’t lots of material, meaning no lumps and bumps!

A big floppy hat is the perfect way to channel those 70’s vibes! I bought a similar one in H&M a few months ago and I love it. It’s such a versatile accessory. You can throw it on with a top and jeans and it’ll instantly “glam-up” an outfit. With Electric Picnic coming up I can honestly say that a floppy hat should be part
of your festival essentials. A hat can hide a multitude; pop this on over day old hair and no one will be any the wiser!

Speaking of festival accessories, it doesn’t get any more perfect than this bag! Apart from the fact that you could fit your kitchen sink in it, its leatherette and fringed – swoon! Fringing is something you either love or hate; personally I love it but I think less is more so I tend to keep it to just one fringed item! I thought the little black suedette booties were so cute. They’re so comfortable to wear too, which is an added bonus. Leather and suede are two textures that I love to mix and they work so well together. While I went for a top-to-toe seventies look here, you can tone it down. Take single pieces of this outfit and pair with what you have in your wardrobe already.
