The beautiful models that exhibited these looks the first time round were Lauren Hutton, Margaux Hemmingway, Cia Carangi, Janice Dickenson, Cheryl Tiegs and Jerry Hall. Although not all of them still with us, seeing where some of the faces we still see around today all started it’s easy to understand what a fun era this time was which I think is important to reflect in your outfit when emulating this decade. The most prominent fashionista was Bianca Jagger. Her own beauty I cannot reveal any tricks for, unfortunately, however her outfits in the said decade can be linked to what Biba’s revival provides us with today (available at House of Fraser). Speaking of houses, House of Harlow, Nicole Richie’s Jewelry line, has excellent and stunning necklaces, rings and bangles which perfectly compliment any modern Seventies inspired look.

So what can you find in today’s stores to take you back to the disco-lovin’ era? Chanel is ripe with sheer blouses and even dresses and skirts. A simple turban could do it. Jumpsuits have been blowing us away for well over a year now and I urge you to go for it. I have a one shouldered pleated sleeve, flared trouser black jumpsuit just from Topshop which I adore. I feel perfectly comfortable in it and somewhat smug against the array of obvious mini-dresses still stomping the clubs! Team your jumpsuit, loon pants, and maxi dresses with a skinny belt. If you can find a long one wrap it around a couple of times! Embrace tassels (not fringing) and jump up onto your platforms. Big earrings are a must á la Rachel Zoe but enjoy a modern version of Farrah Fawcett’s flicks to keep your look modern.
With the weather jumping up to a shocking thirteen degrees it’s definitely time to start lusting over your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Although to keep you warm until it is actually warm add a faux-fur coat or blazer to keep in the theme. Despite not knowing about this decade first hand, it’s one I am utterly certain I will enjoy reinventing! Now… I must go and watch Charlie’s Angels (the original)!
