Yellow Flared Trousers from Dorothy Perkins


A defining moment for 20th century fashion was the influence of traditionally menswear-based techniques and styles on the wardrobes of women everywhere. Taking tailoring into a whole new area, the best retro fashion can often be seen in andorgynous items like these Yellow Flared Trousers from Dorothy Perkins.

The combination of a high waistline and flared legs creates an instantly recognisable 70s style, with the ironed pleats creating a chic formality. Using a bold yellow shade is undeniably vintage inspired, with this pair opting for a soft yellow that makes the pair a little bit easier to pull off.

One Shoulder Tunic Top from River Island


With maxi dresses and palazzo pants bringing back the loose and flowing fit that's instantly reminiscent of seventies fashion, it was only a matter of time before tops and tunics got in on the act. This One Shoulder Tunic Top from River Island is an ideal example, capturing that ethereal feel that defined much of the decade's mainstream looks.

The one shouldered structure allows for some flesh to break up the loose silhouette, with the corsage detailing adding a feminine detail much-loved in US fashion at the time. The use of pale yellow chiffon fabric is unmistakeably vintage influenced, creating the must-have flowing movement.
