The cute teenage 70’s style is all the rage this summer. It’s easy to say buy this, this and this but if like me, you haven’t got much to spend on clothes then you need a fashionable staple item. My answer to this is the denim skirt which has made a reappearance. Last time I wore one of these I was 10 years old, riding my bike at the park every day. But this item really helps to channel the style at the moment and is flexible to use for a variety of outfits.
Personally I would pair a short denim skirt with a basic 70’s t-shirt for a neat everyday look, the t-shirts are found in most stores and are rather cheap, so I recommend!
My treasure trove recently has been the charity shops, which have brought out all their old donated summer clothes. When I visited my hometown in Kent, I popped into a few charity shops and found this old gem, at £2.50, from Marks and Spencers. It’s to the knee, so a longer skirt, but nearly an exact replica of those spread across shops like Topshop. The longer look is just as nice but if you’re not as daring it’s quite easy to take the length up a bit.
Here’s my hot picks:
If you’re looking for something a bit more fitted, this tasteful midi skirt is perfect for complimenting curves. Although denim is considered a casual material, the clean cut offers a neat and professional look. ASOS – £30.00
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, then this skirt is perfect. I feel the white gives a fresh summer vibe and the A-Line button style gives a preppy 70’s effect. New Look – £19.99
If you’re looking for a more fitted cut, this is perfect. A basic denim skirt which could be very versatile in any wardrobe. H&M – £10
I think the buttons and vertical lines are a nice touch to this A-Line styled skirt. The vertical detail would be ideal to accentuate leg length. Topshop – £28
This is one of my absolute favourites. I think it completely embodies the 70’s teen vibe at the moment. It’s a casual look which makes a great change to just wearing leggings or jeans. Boohoo.com – £20.00
I love this casual denim skirt from Mango. The straight cut keeps a casual style whilst the fringe cut at the bottom and slight wrap over detail at the front adds a bit more interest to the piece. Mango – £14.99
