Vintage Top Ten - 1970s Fashion

There is no denying that seventies fashion is everywhere right now. To be honest, it hasn't really left the world of fashion trends for several years now and that makes me happy! There are, however, some questionable interpretations of the 1970s fashion trend online right now. I'm not a vintage purist and I think it's great to mix original vintage fashion with high street pieces or mix various eras to create one individual look. But take the current Love Island cast and their take on a 1970s themed party recently... don't get me wrong they look amazing; but this isn't really the seventies fashion I know and love!



Not a platform heel or dagger collar in sight - and we can't be having that can we? Inspired by the massive seventies trend of the moment, I have rounded up my Top Ten seventies items currently available at My Vintage from 1970s dresses to 1970s tops and 1970s shoes to 1970s bags we've got it all.

I had to act quickly too, as some of my original favourites sold before I could even finish this blog post! So if you do see anything you love - act fast whilst it is still in stock. Let's dive right in...
