I've never been one to follow the "trends" as such. I mean yes I can jump on the bandwagon when a new style comes into play in the fashion world as much as the next blogger. But a lot of the time I tend to wear what suits my style and what really catches my eye.

The 70's trend that spread across the fashion world over the last two fashion seasons is slowly coming to an end as we make room for the 80's and 90's. And I never really got to experience the whole flares and floppy hats thing when it was in season. I mean I liked flared trousers, but I never really knew what to style them with, while keeping true to my edgy/androgynous style. Anyway, it's only now that I have started to follow suit and flare it up. And I couldn't have done it at a worse time, because nobody could give a damn about where I got my flared trousers from or what Beetles track I was dancing along to these days, they're probably a lot more interested in metallics and whatever new trend is bouncing about these days!

This particular shot is called 'Excuse me while I pull out my wedgie, while you still continue to take the photo, and I try to look cool af!'

I suppose the one good thing about falling in love with a trend that has passed it's sell by date, is that all the clothes in that style go on sale as they make way for the newest "trend"! It's pretty foolproof if you ask me, I might start doing this for all the latest fashion trends!

Today I went full on 70's hippy chick, flares and all, and I must say, I really am digging it! The flares are from Boohoo and believe it or not they were only £10 in the sale (See what I mean about waiting for them to go out of season, you get everything so much cheaper. Which is great, for tight/stingy people like me!) and they are the most flattering things I have ever worn. Oddly they make my legs look a million miles longer and my body a hell of a lot sexier and basically if Farrah Fawcett was alive today, she would eat her heart out!

Do you see what I mean about longer and sexier?
Paired with my trusty fedora, because I mean come on, it's the 70's for god's sake's, hats are a given! As are hamburgers...

I decided to keep with a rusty/brownish/creamish colour scheme as I thought they all were very similar in shade and they complimented each other beautifully,

It took a lot for me to not go charging down the lane singing "Night fever, night fever" by the Bee Gee's! And while the 70's was not a trend that spoke to my own personal style, I found a way to make it work, in a way that didn't upset my bank account (because jeez he has been a right moody bum lately) and I suppose I kind of fell in love with the era. Hippies unite!
