1970s skirts – Weekly Wishlist

If you want to nail this 1970s trend, then you need 1970s skirts by the dozen, okay? Yes, flares may be the first thing people think of when the 1970s are mentioned but one outstanding item from that decade is the skirt. Now, 1970s skirts did come in various shapes and styles, but the one you want is the classic A-line midi skirt.

In cord, leather, suede, or cotton, this is the queen of 1970s skirts. So, it’s our weekly wishlist, because we want one them all so much, it hurts.

Now, if midi isn’t your thing, then we will allow the A-line mini skirt. H&M’s berry coloured button front mini (£19.99) is cute as, well, one of it’s buttons. New Look’s checked A-line is a mini (£19.99),as is the cute H by Henry Holland denim mini at Debenhams (£28).

New Look’s denim pocket-front midi (£22.99) screams 1970s skirts to us, agreed? Or, if you want to truly embrace the 1970s vibe, the same style of skirt at New Look in cord (£22.99) – that brilliant 1970s fabric.

New Look have a fantastic range of perfect 1970s skirts – we adore their leather midi with belt (£tbc) and their zip front suedette skirt (£22.99). At JOY we love the preppy style of their Louche plaid pleated midi (£45) – think Ali McGraw in Love Story on this one.

1970s skirtsJOY also have a fab polka dot check print midi (£45). French Connection’s grey jacquard print skirt (£85) will look fantastic with knee high boots, a roll neck sweater, and a fur collar coat for the perfect 1970s vibe.

H&M’s green skirt (£39.99) is a bit floaty to be true 1970s style, but we do love it. And White Stuff’s dotty bobble skirt (£65) is flirty and fun. Finally, BHS (£20, was £25) gets it spot-on with their belted black kick pleat skirt.

Boho bright

There’a a gorgeous trend out there this summer, you might have noticed. We’re calling it boho bright. Think the 1970s, the heat of Marrakech, Moroccan souks, rich and warm, bool and bright colours, textures, jewels, flowing fabrics and prints.

We love this trend. It’s so easy to wear, so summery and so now. Mix lace dresses with long knitted free flowing waistcoats, leather skirts and embelllished accessories for a fabulously rich look.
