Is there an era more prolific in fashion than the ‘70s? From crochet dresses, daisy prints and suede, the era spawned a thousand trends and continues to reign supreme. And what better way to celebrate the iconic era than to shop it? Sydney’s Macquarie Centre are hosting the ultimate shopping event, Fashion Fever, running over four days from May 16-19, celebrating all things boho style. With exclusive deals, pop up talks and plenty to see, there’s no excuse not to join in.
‘70s style has evolved in the past few years into something seriously sophisticated and wearable for the everyday. As animal prints, corduroy and fringing take centre stage once again, designers are looking to reimagine the era with fresh takes.
Mix dark denim with flared sleeves in neutral shades, fresh cottons with high necks and crochet with modern shapes for a subtle take on the trend — it’s boho style reimagined. Forget longline paisleys and dated bell bottoms; instead, take cropped flared jeans and pair them with flowing animal prints, under fit-and-flare dresses or with a crochet jumper. Finish off with a platform mule and you’ve yourself a modern bohemian. Shop our favourite ‘70s-inspired pieces below.
