When people think of seventies fashion, they most often picture the student folk look that was so popular with young hippie types. That’s all well and good, but it does deprive lovers of retro looks of a myriad of options. This Ives Dress from French Connection is reminiscent of something quintessentially seventies – loungewear.
Somewhere between bourgeoisie and New York disco, this silk number is taken back a few decades by the flowing cut and draped bell sleeves. Teamed with a risqué hem fit for Studio 54, this is a great piece of retro fashion under the radar.
It’ll set you back £95 from French Connection.
