HOW TO WEAR THIS SUMMER'S 70'S TREND.




 Hi Lovelies! This post is definitely long overdue, but I've finally got round to expressing my love for this Summer's throwback to the 70s. My wardrobe at the minute pretty much consists of bell sleeves and wide leg trousers- I pick up everything I like that fits with the boho retro look. One of my favourite pieces this summer is a navy blue and yellow floral co-ord set from Miss Selfridge

So, in this post I'm hoping to tell you guys how I styled one of the 70's outfits I'm wearing this summer and hopefully give you guys some inspiration on how to style your own looks. I wore this outfit during a stay in London with my boyfriend. He is from Hong Kong so travels back home during the uni breaks so I didn't see him for a while and we celebrated with a lovely hotel stay at Qbic London. The hotel itself is really cool, the room basically consists of trendy and quirky furniture, and the bed is a huge cube which is back to back with a bathroom. I definitely recommend the place and its just a short walk from Shoreditch so perfect location! There's even mood lighting and all sorts ;)

I paired the outfit with my white heeled gladiator sandals, we were walking around London and I wanted to wear heels to help elongate my legs in my flares but something that was still comfy. I curled my hair 70's style, away from my face and used my large round retro sunglasses as a hair accessory ( I use sunglasses as hair accessories all the time- even if its not  particularly sunny... haha). I painted my nails nude and used a load of pretty midi rings from Topshop. On my lips I went for a dark nudey pink by Kiko, 602. I contoured my face with the amaaaaazing Morphe cream contour palette and fake tanned with Vita Liberata. A dainty necklace from Accessorize's Z range helped highlight the v-neck of the top.

I absolutely love this outfit and there are loads of other amazing items in Miss Selfridge's summer collection- their wide leg trousers are so beautiful. I had an amazing weekend in Qbic, a lovely dinner at Pizza East and retro clothes made it even better ♥. Are you loving the 70's trend this summer? What looks have you styled? Let me know in the comments!
