The fashion trend that’s huge this season

Think dreamy paisley prints and floaty broderie.

This season, the '70s are back in the fashion world with a vengeance.

Although you may be thinking that you can't bear to dig out the gear you stashed at the back of your wardrobe, now is the time. 

With many labels bringing out '70s inspired spring collections, Tomas Vlachioties, Womenswear Design Lead of Marks & Spencer, shares some tips for making the nostalgic trend work for you.

"From modern paisley to upscale broderie and cut work, Marks & Spencer’s latest seasonal offerings hold a strong '70s resurgence," Tomas says. "Featuring relaxed silhouettes and contemporary dressing is key for the season and Marks & Spencer have taken a real considered approach to colour, print and fabric combinations for this collection to bring the '70s to 2019. Key nostalgic elements like snake print, miniskirts and corduroy can be worn in the office or out to dinner."

Animal print

Tomas suggests pairing a snake print blouse with a pair of light denim and a blazer to make a statement in the office. Or, if you want to keep it toned down, pair it with a loafer to add a business-casual-chic feel to your look.

Corduroy is back

This soft fabric really sums up the era and Tomas suggests wearing a cord skirt with a jumper and trainers for a casual weekend look.

Paisley perfection

The classic print never gets old and when thrown together with sandals and a denim jacket, Tomas says you can't go wrong with this smart-casual look.
