How To: Accesorise 70’s Luxe Style
There’s always a new trend to try. And whether its introducing an accent piece, or going all out and donning an entire outfit. Accessories and jewellery can be a great way to trial a trend or introduce it into your existing wardrobe.
But it can be a little daunting to know how to accessorise these new looks, especially if it’s something you’re not familiar or not sure about yet. We’re here to show you how to accessorize these trends like a fashion pro!
This season we’re really into 70’s Luxe and have some great pieces that will really compliment this style. So read on to see what we like about 70’s Luxe, where we’re finding inspiration and our key jewellery pieces for this look.
What's With The 70s Comeback?
So what’s with the 70s comeback we’ve seen building over recent seasons? A move against the utilitarian, monochrome, normcore fashion we’ve seen everywhere over the past few years? The 70’s boho-luxe look is really the opposite of that style with its warm tones and flowing lines.
A great BBC article I read on 70s fashion trend and culture (check it out here) suggests the style also fits with the current times of valuing experiences, music, travel, and individuality – and opposing generic high street fashion.
And that is something that we are all about at iROCK Jewellery – unique products and customisation for individuality. So I guess that’s why the 70s Luxe trend resonates with us.
70’s Luxe: As Seen On
Designer fashion leads the trend, with Lanvin, Topshop Unique and Br(below) featuring some great 70’s Luxe inspiration in their Autumn/Winter 2015 runway collections. I can’t get enough of the metallics, fur, flares and pleats – gorgeous!
And for some more street style inspiration, here’s how the celebs have been rocking the 70’s Luxe vibe. Unsurprisingly 70s boho queens Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie are leading the fashion pack. And check out Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung's modern take.
Why I Love 70’s Luxe
I love the 70s Luxe look, but what I really like about it is it’s easy to wear. It just feels so… relaxing. And seems to make you feel more confident. Net-a-porter explained in a recent edition of their online mag (check it out here) that the 70s trend is in sync with women’s bodies; flares are a visual illusion that slims and lengthens, long necklaces enhance your cleavage, platform heels are wearable, and peasant blouses are flattering to your waistline. Indeed the new 70s Luxe is all about feeling good about yourself.
This season my key pieces will be denim flares, a fluffy coat, neutral silk shirts, long boots, luxe fabrics like suede and velvet, some oversized tortoiseshell sunglasses, and lots of gold!
We have some gorgeous gold pendants and symbolic charm bracelets that will really compliment the 70’s Luxe trend for every budget. Here’s a collection of our fave pieces.
