While some seventies fashion gets a bad rap from fashion circles, the diversity of the decade is often forgotten. One trend that has proven well worthy of reinvention is the disco-era jumpsuit. This Open Back Silk Jumpsuit from ASOS is a luxurious version worthy of a trip to Studio 54's legendary dancefloor.
The loose shape adds an expensive feel, with swathes of fabric that hang with effortless chic in all the right places. The slimline belt adds some much needed shape, while the plunging back flashes enough flesh without loosing the class. A wide leg and muted colours finish off a perfect piece – all that's left is to figure out how to get out.
It's available now from ASOS for £60.

A while back, we reported that the BT Tower, formerly the Post Office Tower, could be re-opening in the future as a boutique hotel complete with that revolving restaurant. We've heard nothing of that since, but we have some exciting news about the tower for next month – it's open to the public.
Currently used by BT for administration and the occasional publicity shot and party, this icon of the swinging sixties will open its doors as part of Open House London, which takes place over the 18th and 19th September and aims to bring a range of London's architecture to the masses via open days, tours, walks and talks.
You'll need to buy the programme/brochure to get the full listing of venues and events this year, but the BT Tower information has been released as a 'teaser'. A pretty exciting one too – it's not not been open to the public since 1981. That programme is available to pre-order online now for £6.50.
