The 1970s Fashion Spirit

The newest fashion trend illustrates the very best of 1970s in it's full glory.

Floating semi-sheer and tranparent fabric dresses bring back 1970s fashions exactly. Look for fluid fantasy flares, flowing maxi dresses and frilled fiesta frocks. Be also on the look out for skinny rib striped chevron knits and beautiful floral striped cardigans.

The romantic ruffles of the 70's flow into faded hippy chic. Fringed bags, bleached denim cropped jeans, halter dresses worn with platform shoes and big straw floppy hats bring back the 70's groovy flower child memories in fashion.

It is really interesting and fascinating to know how much designers get inspired by recreating 1970s style. This awesome new retro fashion trend depicts several of the very best of the 70's in all it's groovy 70's spirit.

The 1970s retro uses Luxe fabrics to remake the drape of full wide trousers and silk chiffon which depicts the long dreamy dresses of that fashion era. In the real 70's the fabrics were probably created of Laura Ashley sprigged cottons or crinkle crepe viscose.

The Dreamy Garden Tea Dress, Blouse and Tunic Florals

The Spring and Summer 2011 designer fashion shows were full of floral based fabrics and accessories. These pieces are all vintage retro 70's inspired.


Print and Fabrics of 70's Retro Fashion

Fashion in the 70's usually used a'lot of floral patterns, from ditsy pinhead prints to massive exotic hothouse blooms.

For the Spring and Summer of 2011 washed silk, silk charmouse, viscose, organza, flowing silk chiffons and parachute silk fabrics are all used to make a light-as-air dreamy summer dress.

The lightness and transperancy, mostly in voiles and chiffons upgrade the feeling of 1970s flowing dresses. Other light draping blouses and hemline kimono tops of certain lenghts make their way on the summer trends of 2011. Be on the lookout for extra light fabrics of translucent tulle flowing silk and chiffon, tactile, knobbly cloque and shiny satin all of them which are great in surface quality.

The other hot fashion trends coming out this year include the contrasting the contrasting dress looks where edgy sharp funky dresses contrast agaisnt billowing chiffon and lace peek-a-boo. The answer is female fantasy frocks of long ago. The tiny lace pleating around the cuffs on blouse and dresses gives a touch me or touch me not vibe.

The beaded sandals have fun and creative tassels and coins that really goes back to the whole 1970s hippy style of footwear that was brought back from vacations.
