The five major 1970’s trends that I spotted on fall fashion runway this year were high necks, feminine bow-tie’s, polka-dots, broad-belts and skin tight leggings.
High Necks & High Waists
While frilly high-necks were splashed all over the runways, we could also spot buttoned shirts to create the high-neck look and that is one 70’s trend which easy to recreate within your Winter fashion wardrobe. Just the way I have done here.
Buttoned up collars, broad collars are again one of the famous 70’s or 80’s fashion fad that is seeing come-back this year.
Another Winter fall fashion 2017 trend is the high-waist trend. Be it Midi, Pant-suits or skirts, high waist ruled the runway for fall this year and it seems we will see lots of high-waist dresses in the coming months.

When we talk about high-waist, waist cinching belts are a must for fall fashion 2017. From Gucci to Armaani and Victoria beckham to Miu Miu, all designers seemed obsessed with this high waisted broad belts that put the complete look into a perspective. Vintage back-packs are not far behind.
If you have watched the fall fashion closely you might agree that Polk Dots seemed to be everywhere. This is what makes the 70’s look real. Polka dots, Parkas and Plaid are the three of the 70’s adage that defined that era and all three are now being obsessed by fashion industry all over again.
Bow-tie for Women
Women Bow-tie have been a major come-back previous year and this year they are getting more and more mainstream. With feminine bow-ties ruling the runway this fall is going to be all about Women’s Bow-tie trend.
Here I have used a Black polka dot bow tie. This bow-tie actually belongs to my little one and is pretty easy to wear 😉 I totally love how it looks so vintage and goes so well with this retro look. To make the 70’s look authentic, I have styled my hair in an audrey inspired sock-bun. Winged eyeliner and coral lips complete the whole look.
Tights or Jeggings
Jeggings, fishnet tights and leather tights are the hottest fall fashion trend of 2017. And come to think of it, this one is also a retro fashion trend that is seeing a come-back.
