Trend Alert: Bigger than the 70s

The 70s are back with a vengeance. Drag out those flares, zip up those platforms and flick that Farrah Fawcett hair, it’s time to start rockin’ a new look.

Direct from the catwalk, there has been an array of midi skirts, paisley print, suede textures and Saturday Night Fever collars. We have seen all of the colossal fashion houses celebrating this trend, Tom Ford, Gucci, Dries Van Noten, Derek Lam, Ives Saint Laurent, names names names! Trust me on this; the 70s today is going to be bigger than the 70s then.

But, how do you adapt this trend without looking like a throwback?

Well my fashionistas, it’s all in the attention to detail. Instead of choosing a skinny jean, why not opt for boot cut or cropped sailor trouser? When it comes to shirts, your collars should be wide and pointy, but not so big you can’t see a psychedelic neck scarf peeking through. Also, take note of the fabrics this season. We are going to be seeing an awful lot of suede and denim, so embrace them. Find a great coat that utilises these 70s textures and you’re sure to have a great friend to see you through the coming months.

As you’ll see above, I have chosen some fine watches that reflect this season’s must-have trend, without breaking the bank. So listen closely, these watches are sure to be on everyone’s hit list this season.

The first watch in our collection comes from a fashion house that is the epitome of luxury, high fashion and glamour; it is none other than the irrepressible Gucci. This Interlocking-G watch is in this season’s hot orange, featured not only on the strap but also on the dial. It’s a great way to inject some colour into your wardrobe and be right on-trend. This watch also benefits from having high-quality battery operated quartz movements, keeping you on time or fashionably late for any occasion.

The second on-trend gem is from Guess. This watch is a rarity on House of watches, due to the denim effect genuine leather strap, providing you with an up-to-date accessory and a watch of quality, not to mention the expert quartz movements that come with any Guess watch.

So what are you waiting for? Add a contemporary twist and unleash the 70s.
