That’s it, I’ve gone full-on 70s style.
The temptation to pair my boho blouse with my Marks & Spencer flared jeans was too much: I usually say don’t go for a head-to-toe retro look from one specific decade unless you want to recreate that era, but this was one of those times that I did. (Want to recreate that era, I mean.)
I also know that the way the flared jeans trend is ‘meant’ to be worn this season is with (block) heels, but to be honest it was the weekend, I was walking to the supermarket and I just wanted to be practical and comfortable. So I reached for my Converse Chuck Taylors. And did a centre parting. And if that’s not 70s style, I don’t know what is…! The only exception to the 70s theme was my new white leather backpack from Asos. I’ve been looking for a smart backpack for a while (my mini plaid backpack just doesn’t look right in the summer), and I think this one will see me through the winter as well – I liked the contrast of the white leather against an off-white boho lace blouse.
I must mention the jeans as I’m gutted that these M&S ones are sold out; they’re the perfect flared jeans with the front patch pockets I’d been longing for all year… I’d tried on a few and none were as flattering as these.
Are you into the flared jeans yet? I was thinking of doing a post where I road-test a selection of high street flared jeans – is this of interest to anyone? Let me know in the comments!
