Coming at you with another fantastic vintage Top Ten this week, from our unrivalled selection at This week I have chosen some of my absolute favourite 1970s vintage dresses from our virtual rails. For me, the seventies offers such a melting pot of styles from the glitz of disco to the boho hippy vibes, and some seriously stylish entries in-between. There were also some seriously sought after fashion designers in the 1970s, whose pieces are at the most collectable they have ever been. Whether maxi, midi or mini, there are so many amazing styles of vintage dresses from the 1970s that I am sure there will be something you love in this week's hot list! So lets take a look...
