Zara denim mini and camel coat, Asilio lace top, Acne Jensen boots, Alexander Wang Bag 

70s fashion is currently in full swing with flares, tan suede, fringe, and bohemian peasants blouses invading stores.  If your clothes err more on the minimal side, 70s fashion may seem too much and too busy. However  there are ways to incorporate this trend subtly in you wardrobe.

Take for example my nod to this trend with a denim mini from Zara.  The a line, button down shape screams 70s, however it is actually a versatile piece that will happily sit along side my other wardrobe usuals. I’m thinking of teaming this skirt with simple tees and sneakers for no fuss summer wear, or slouchy sweaters for cooler days.

I’ve amped up the 70s vibe in this outfit by pairing it with a lace top (throwback to crochet) and a camel coat.

My other tips for injecting this trend into your wardrobe subtly is to focus on the accessories. Perhaps purchase a fringe bag that will dress up a simple outfit, or a pair of of killer platform mules.  Think of items that will able to mix and match with your current items  so you won’t be regretting these purchases later.

Alfa Alfa Double Sphere Necklace

When I was younger I used to love wearing big, bold statement jewellery. Nowadays, however, I gravitate towards minimal, subtle pieces that whisper rather than shout. Alfa Alfa is a Melbourne label that designs and curates,  beautiful modern jewellery. Their point of difference is their unusual choice of media  – several pieces in their collection feature concrete, evoking industrial minimalism.  I particularly love Alfa Alfa’s signature necklace- an interesting juxtaposition of a concrete sphere and delicate freshwater pearl.

Alfa Alfa’s designs not only sit beautifully on their own, but they also integrate seamlessly with other pieces. Simply perfect additions to any wardrobe.

Alfa Alfa has kindly offered my readers 20% off until 14 August 2015 by using the code Alfaxmarileepham.

Happy Shopping!
