When we look back at the summer of 2015 in fashion terms, we will remember it as the year the 70s had a revival. It has been virtually impossible to escape 70s style this season, almost all High street, online and designer brands have done their version of the fashion of the 1970s. A decade that used to be considered one that style had forgotten, it is now seen as a era when new and vibrant designs by the likes of Zandra Rhodes, Bill Gibb, Halston and Betsey Johnson all contributed to a really exciting time in fashion.
This post is contributing on two key items that have been style staples this season. The kimono jacket was a big story in the 1970s as Japanese designers like Kawakubo and Yamamoto emerged onto the international scene. Oriental prints were popular, and the wide sleeves and obi tie belts of the traditional Japanese costume became key fashion statements, something that is still the case in 2015.

Just add flares…
Flares are cool once again, and look great teamed with a vest and kimono jacket. Jeans are a staple, but you can also add fabric options for a holiday look that looks great with wedges, cork heels and clog style sandals.
