The new take on 70s bohemian style is unmistakably luxe and decadent, and with designers such as Chloé, Etro and Gucci, to name just a few, all channelling a retro chic vibe on the AW15 catwalks, it’s definitely here to stay.
Want the best news of all? We’ve discovered amazing purse-friendly pieces to work into our autumn wardrobes in the latest Tu at Sainsbury’s Chatsworth collection – but hurry, key pieces will get snapped up fast!
Featuring rich colours, intricate paisley patterns and lady-like faux fur add-ons, this is a sophisticated spin on the trend that’s set to dominate our autumn wardrobes. Say farewell to your festival-inspired summer numbers and opt for heavier fabrics like leather, suede and chunky knits to stride into the new season in style.
You may not be the lady of the manor but introducing opulent patterns, fabrics and colours like teal, burgundy and coffee tones into your wardrobe will show you’ve got your finger on the pulse when it comes to keeping up with this evolving 70s-inspired revival. Standout shapes to invest in are voluminous midi skirts, cosy cape cover-ups and chic, tapered trousers to go with almost anything.
Think high Victorian-style necklines, smart leather minis, tan knee-high boots and this season’s work-appropriate waistcoat for a modern-day take on 70s style. No AW15 wardrobe is complete without standout accessories and Tu at Sainsbury’s has come up trumps with endless fringing, tapestry and leather offerings to take your everyday ensembles to a whole new level. You’ll also find structured tote bags, luxurious devoré scarves and gorgeous faux fur accessories, perfect for dialling up your look at the weekend. We’re hooked!
The key to nailing this trend is to adopt an anything-goes attitude. ‘Layering and mixing delicate and heavy fabric finishes keep this chic 70s-influenced look luxe,’ says Lucia Debieux, Marie Claire’s fashion editor. Don’t be afraid to pile on the prints either, there’s no such thing as too much with this nostalgic look.
Our hero piece from the new Tu at Sainsbury’s Chatsworth collection? It has to be the multi-coloured faux fur gilet, styled over one of the irresistible paisley print dresses, it’s a key piece you’ll turn to season after season. For a pared-down daytime look, fling it over a chunky cowl-neck knit, and wear with your best skinny jeans – don’t forget to add a hat for extra style points.
Ready, set, shop…
