Bianca Jagger’s 70s style with Boohoo

If I had to choose my favourite style decade, I would probably choose the 1970s. I am a child of the 1970s (born in June 1974, when The Rubettes were number one with Sugar Baby Love – totally love that song!) and love all the styles of that decade, from Glam Rock to Punk. But the trend I love most from that decade has to be the ultra glamorous, Halston dominated, Studio 54 era.

Studio 54 was the domain of the beautiful people of the 1970s. From Margeaux Hemingway, to David Bowie, via Andy Warhol, Rudolph Nureyev and Liza Minnelli, all the biggest stars flocked to the decadent, disco-era nightclub in New York. But in terms of sheer beauty and trendsetting elegance, the Queen of Studio 54 was Bianca Jagger. And it is her style that we are looking to as we approach Christmas this year, with Boohoo.com channeling the draping, sequins and fluid satin looks of the late 1970s.

Check out some of Bianca’s most iconic looks below, and then enjoy the disco tinged pieces I have selected from Boohoo’s latest range.

Boohoo Plus size range just gets better

It is no secret that I’m a real fan of the plus size range that Boohoo introduced late last year. I have quite a few pieces in my wardrobe and they tick a whole lot of boxes. They are well sized – if anything they can be quite generous, they are superbly priced, and the style and quality have both proven to be pretty good. Now Boohoo are further extending the collection, with pretty much anything you need for Autumn/Winter included in the latest collection.

The dress I am reviewing on the blog today is now in the sale, and I would say it is an absolute bargain if you are a dress fan. The Charlotte Mesh inset dress comes in two colour ways, black and a very sweet coral colour, which is the colour I went for, just for a change.  The dress had cap sleeves, a knee length skirt, and a very eye-catching lace/mesh panel. I liked the simplicity of the dress on the website – the neckline took away the problem of finding a necklace, and the length was just right, neither too short or long.

I do like this dress, but must admit that  I wish I had opted for the black, as I think I would probably wear it more. I loved the fact that it was stretchy in a sort of scuba material, this is the sort of dress that just goes on over the head, with no zips or fastenings. The colour is gorgeous, a lovely deep coral shade that contrasts so well with the cream mesh detail.

DSCN9496I do have a couple of issues with the dress though. Firstly, this is not the dress I would wear if I was going out for something to eat – it clings to the stomach a little, so no good for hiding a food baby. Secondly, the beautiful lace panel on the front is a little low for me, it revealed a lot of bra and so I added a vest underneath to spare some of my blushes. But, all in all, I really liked how pretty it was. It was a very different style for me to wear.

I wore this dress for a night at the ballet. It was a lovely warm evening, and so the colour and style seemed just right. I added animal print accessories, and just a large cuff bangle.

Boohoo – The new plus size collection

One of the my favourite online fashion events of the last twelve months was the launch of the plus size collection from Boohoo.com. It offered clothes that were affordable, fashionable and catered for women of all ages. It took a good look at the trends and translated them in a way that did more than just offering a look in a larger size. I loved the initial collections, finding the clothes to be very wearable, with one particular black dress becoming a real wardrobe fave of mine. (You can see that dress here.) Now the latest collection has been launched, and, once again, there is a lot to love.

There are kimono jackets that come in two lengths, from short, flirty versions, to amazing long length styles that will be a brilliant way to dress up jeans, or to be worn, Daisy Lowe style, over hotpants and shorts. There are dresses and skirt which have the midi length that shows no signs of going away. Lots of the dresses have the swing shape that avoids clinging and allows for that second pudding you fancied. These also allow for versatility – you can wear them loose and flowing, or you can dress them up and add a belt to define shape.

As for colours, anything goes. Classic black is well represented, but there are also floral prints that seem to utilise every single shade from the rainbow. I love the deep mustard of the Lucy Midi Skirt, a sports luxe number that would look great pair with a black oversized tee, whilst the Mallory longline kimono comes in a fabulous shade of orange, perfect for blowing those Autumn cobwebs away.

Here are some of my favourite pieces from the range. I will be reviewing pieces from the range in the coming weeks (I won’t feature those picks here, that can be a surprise), but as I said, there is so much to love in this collection.
