Style Spotlight: The 70s are Back!

Whether you lived through it once or not, 70s style is back in such a big way, you can be forgiven for forgetting it originally happened 40 years ago! Here are the top five 70s beauty and fashion trends to hit 2015. 

2015 has taken a whirl back to the 70s with a big bang. Whip out your old fashion and beauty favourites, and give them a modern twist. 

1. Hair: Big or bangs

When thinking hair, think big! Perms may not be par for the course as they were during the last days of disco, but a few good rollers, firm hold spray and a bit of back-combing can work wonders this year.

The 2015 Edit:

Don't have a natural wave? Take a leaf out of Taylor Swift's beauty manual and update your LOB (long bob) with a blunt fringe.

2. Fashion: Denim on denim

Double dipping into denim has been a fashion faux par for the past few decades, until now. From the streets of Paris to your local patch, cruisers are pairing their favourite pair of jeans back with a denim shirt or jacket. It is a super hot look – and incredibly easy to navigate – with a few simple staple pieces – often best foraged for in your local thrift store!

The 2015 Edit:

To bring this look into the new millennium, don't be too 'matchy matchy' with your denim washes. Team different shades together and accentuate with a coloured jacket or accessory, pair a worn old shirt with a deep, dark denim jean, or a distressed pair of white denim jeans with a tailored blue denim jacket.

3. Eyes: Glitter and glam

The eyes have it. Feel free to grab that cobalt mascara and eye shadow right about now. Whether aquamarine or a more subdued steel navy, playing up eyes with colour is one old beauty friend you can feel free to revisit.

The 2015 Edit:

If you want to taper back the blue lashes a little, apply some black over the blue for subtle effect.

4. Lips: Big gloss

Feel free to pick up your high-octane, mega-watt mouth where you left off! Lips are lush and liquid this year – in rosy plums of red and crimson – and they are unashamedly glossed to the utmost degree.

The 2015 Edit:

Not into the slick and shimmery vibe? Take your cue from Khloe Kardasian with her fiercely fire engine red pout. Slick back your hair (and what the hell, grab a faux fur!) and you’ve got the impact down pat.

5. Denim: Bell bottoms

Skinny jeans be-gone. The flares are back and bigger than ever. Flares can be flattering for any body shape if worn well as the high waist can cinch in any sins and the kick out at the knee – and extra long length of cuff – gives a visual elongation to any leg length and a boost in stature.

The 2015 Edit:

Team these blue bad boys back with those platform shoes still kicking around in your closet from summer. Do not try flares with flats as this will only shorten – and widen – you at the base of your body.
