Since winter started all we have been seeing is the seventies look coming back with a bang. this was a timeless decade of nothing but colourful bright fashion. Tight fitting wide leg trousers, bellbottoms , a-line skirts, jumpsuits, knit wear and the knee length boots.
This look is mostly worn with big chunky coats, my absolute fav.
First runner up is on our list, the A-line skirt. this skirt has comes in two hem lines, a thin hemline or a high hemline. Depending on your body shape, if you’re short and voluptuous its best you wear the thin hem line, this will suit your body preferably with tucked lace or silk shirt.
Second runner up, the bellbottom. every year, every season this trousers have managed to stay timeless season after season. These trousers are perfect for tall women, the bellbottom gives more definition to the slim figured body. If you’ure short preferably get the ankle length bellbottoms this will give your body the illusion of being slightly tall and slim. The bellbottoms hug the waist giving your bum a natural bum lift these trousers a best worn with vests, tailor fitted shirts and pullovers.
Third runner up, the wide leg trousers, its elegant and classy. These trousers are good for lengthening, they give the illusion of making you look like you have these beautiful long legs and a small waist. These are perfect for any occasion especially with a colourful detailed buckle belt to complete this elegant look, toping it of with painted heels.
Fourth runner up is the knit wear, my all time fav. I can wear knit wear from January till December, i think i’m gonna cry i love knit wear. I’m obsessed with knit, maybe cause i was raised by my grandmother and she clothed us in nothing but stuff she knitted for us growing up as kids.
I love pairing my knit wear with pencil skirt, or tailored fitted pants, this doesn’t clutter the your outfit, its easy on the eye, its classy, elegant, sexy and it makes an amazing silhouette, outlining every detail in body shape. Make sure to tuck in the front of the knit wear only and leave the rest hanging loose with a tailored fitted trouser. With a pencil skirt make sure the knit wear sits on the waist to outline your beautifully shaped waistline. These outfits rock with a pair of high heels in any colour preferably peep toe pumps.
Last, but no least the jumpsuit. This is one delicate outfit that needs you to pay close attention to the detail, the fabric and length. For petite people this look is fierce, its hot and elegant. If you have hips and an ass this look tends to make you feel uncomfortable. the suit tends to pull up as you walk and down and it shifts in between your thighs making it ride up your behind. Therefore in this instance rather get boyish jumpsuits these are loose and flowy, they have elastic on the waistline and on the ankles, they help sculpt your body shape.
All these looks were always paired with big chunky fitting coats in the 70’s and with matching knee length boots, short heel with a pointed toe. this look is still present to this day, have fun this winter in beautiful clothes.
