The romantic era of the ‘70s fashion was all about freedom, a variety of colours, eclectic looks and a tendency to mix and match different styles with each other.

I know I jumped on the '70s train in my summer suedes, platform sandals, and button-front skirts. That's why I'm excited that the '70s trend is still going strong this winter. You might think that the '70s trend is better suited to the warm months, but that's not the case.
