The Seventies Dress

46 comments
Ah, the seventies trend. I think I've mentioned before that when it first started to creep in, I wasn't keen on it at all. Then, slowly, I started to warm towards it, and now I'm full-on embracing it! It's amazing how fashion can persuade you to change your mind so completely. I think that's one of the things I love about it most.

I first saw this dress when it popped up on my Twitter feed, and it was love at first sight. The wintry floral print is so pretty and I love the femininity of the relaxed, boho style. There's definitely more than a hint of the seventies about this dress, and because of that, chances are it's not going to look quite right this time next year. But... it was only £14.99, so who cares?! Classic clothing is wonderful, but sometimes it's nice to just have a bit of fun with the latest trends. I'm definitely feeling the fun in fashion right now.

I wore the dress out to dinner on my birthday a couple of weeks ago with spike heeled ankle boots, but it works really well for daytime too. You just have to make sure you have some thick tights and a jacket on if you're out and about, as it's quite thin material.

The dress is from H&M, and I have to say I'm loving their stuff at the moment. H&M is one of those places that's brilliant to shop in if you need to stock up on quite a few things, as the prices are so reasonable and the quality generally pretty high.

I've really enjoyed wearing a deep berry lip with this dress. This one is Rimmel The Only One lipstick in Under My Spell, together with a Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner of the same name. If you haven't tried Rimmel's The Only One range, I really do recommend checking it out. The finish and staying power are seriously impressive for a drugstore lipstick, and I'm totally in love with this shade.

Are you embracing the seventies trend? And what's your favourite shop for picking up fashion bargains?

  1. I have been loving the 70s trend since it first made its appearance, but I am not able to fully give in because I am limited by my gigantic belly.
    I enjoy H+M or Zara for "fashionable" pieces too, and try to invest in classics that I know I will wear more than one season.

    1. I bet those beautiful loose, peasant style blouses would look gorgeous over a baby bump! I agree with you - spend more on the stuff that will last, and fritter just a little away on the fun, fleeting items! x

  4. I do adore the 70's trend and I hope it's here to stay. I have yet to fully dive into the whole boho chic 70's thing, the closest I come to it is with my flare jeans but I'm slowly looking to add more pieces to my wardrobe. How tall are you, Kate because you look amazing in the dress whereas I know I would look like I'm drawing in it.

    1. Ah that's a real shame. I don't know why stores still haven't cottoned on to the fact that actually very few of us are built like supermodels! If they're making a dress they should make it for everyone. X

  10. I'm not too sure if I can pull off the seventies trend but then again I haven't really given it a chance. Love this floaty maxi dress on you, it's just stunning and the pattern/colours scream autumn x

  12. I've found myself inadvertently embracing the 70s trend lately - though I guess it's hard to avoid considering the shops are packed full with it haha! I really love this busy print on you, very beautiful :)

  13. Looking so enchantingly beautiful Kate! The 70s trend suits you so well, this floaty maxi was just made for you. I'm happy you're enjoying the 70s vibes out there, you work them so perfectly ;) Definitely agree that H&M are winning at the moment; I'm loving their green glittery pieces. The jacket and boots nail this look too. Very much in love with the fairytale-esque setting you've got as a stunning backdrop. Just perfect! <3

    1. Thanks Dagmara! Flared jeans is the one thing I'm still holding back on. I used to love them in the nineties but I'm not sure I'm ready to go there again quite yet. Watch this space though! x

  23. What a beautiful dress! I usually associate maxi dresses with Summer but I love how you paired it with boots and a leather jacket, making it very Autumn appropriate. x

  24. I couldn't get excited about the seventies trend either, until I tried on and bought my first pair of bellbottoms in over a decade! They're so flattering! Speaking of flattering, this dress is beautiful! The colors look great on you and I love how you gave it a more modern, edgy twist with that leather jacket :)
