I was challenged to pick out my favourite trend from New Looks’sFashion Flashback‘ tool & channel it. The timeline is so detailed and full of so many inspiring pictures – I was flicking through the decades from the 60’s to the 90’s taking in all the imagery for ages before finally settling on the 70’s hot pants trend. The decision was pretty much just based on how effortlessly cool the ladies on accompanying picture were – totally squad goals *.*

For my seventies inspired outfit I picked out these adorable rust coloured cord shorts and paired them with a (hopefully very 70s) combo of a tied up sheer shirt, oversized floppy hat, skinny scarf & fringed jacket. I topped the outfit off with lashing of jewellery and cute ruffle socks & mary janes to give the outfit a sweeter retro vibe.

What’s your favourite fashion era? While I’m loving the 70s resurgence at the moment (Stevie Nicks has always been a huge style icon for me), I’ll always love the grunge & gothic influence of the 90s!

    I'm a 50s fan (I love a full skirt and petticoat) but I can't get enough of the 70s look on other people. The suedeand fringe warms my heart.
    You look great

    I'm not the biggest fan of the 70's trend, but you succeeded in transforming it into something I love. What else is new. In love with those shorts, whoah!

    Perfect Olivia, those rust shorts are so gorgeous! I'm loving the 70s resurgence too but my fav fashion era would have to be the 60s and their dresses! <3
