I’m a child of the 1970s, and love everything about the decade that some say style forgot. Platform shoes, flares, halter neck maxi dresses and glam rock are all cherished by Fashion-Mommy. And in terms of Christmas, was it ever celebrated better than in the 70s.Think about it, you could watch Christmas Top of the Pops in 1973 whilst dance away to the sounds of Slade, Wizzard and Elton John ‘Stepping into Christmas’, then enjoy the Morecambe and Wise Christmas special whilst enjoying a snowball and a selection of vol-u-vents and other delights from the hostess trolley. What’s not to love?
This Christmas you can channel the best of 70s style. So whether your style icon is Farah Fawcett in her ‘Angels’ days, Margo Ledbetter or Faye Dunaway, you will find your dressing, and gift needs taken care of. Here’s a guide to the best of the 70s…now someone fetch me a Cinzano!
This top is soooo Abigail’s Party. Add a long black maxi skirt for a real retro feel!
Can’t believe this gold printed jumpsuit is New Look, it looks like something Bianca Jagger would’ve worn to Studio 54.
These fabulous Miu Miu style shoe have a real Glam Rock feel. I love them so much I’ve just ordered a pair myself, and I’m in good company, both Rochelle and Mollie from The Saturdays have been spotted wearing them recently.
The seventies were the birthplace of the iconic wrap dress a la Diane Von Furstenberg. This Monsoon number just needs a floppy fedora for the authentic look.
