Spring/Summer ’15 Fashion Trends: Shades of the Seventies

Seventies style is stayin’ alive this spring/summer with gorgeous shades reminiscent of the era. Jenni has picked some of her fave patterns from some of our independent designers and brands that are perfect for the trend!

Spring/Summer ’15 Fashion Trends: Shades of the Seventies

You could be forgiven for beleiving you’d woken up in another era during spring fashion week with many designers chanelling seventies style in their sping/summer ’15 ranges. From vibrant flower power to sleek suede, all elements were picked up and given a modern pang. I’m a big fan of the soft, caramel and chocolate shades and pop brights!

1. Uniform, build your own cardigan by Carrie Bostick Hoge

I love the style of this cardigan and think it would go great with some light blue flare jeans (boho hair not required) Carrie recommends knitting it in Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran, loving shade Camel!

2. Tang Top & Lelita Sweater by Sarah Hatton

These are bound to brighten up your days (especially those not so summery summer days!) Try knitting it in the bright shades of Schoeller und Stahl Record 210.

3. Peace and Love Sweater by Anna Ravenscroft

We couldn’t do a post about the seventies and not mention peace and love! Anna Ravenscoft’s sweater channels this perfectly with it’s olive branch heart motif. The recommended yarn is discontinued but you can replace it with Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK.

4. Rowan Magazine 57 by Rowan

Rowan’s latest magazine has some gorgeous knits that all take inspiration from spring/summer ’15 trends. I love the styling of these two pieces. Find the magazine here.

5. Autumnal Cardigan by Knitbot (Hannah Fetig)

Okay, so it might be strange to add a cardigan with autumnal in the heading to a spring/summer round up but the colours of this are right on the seventies trend! Plus, we all know spring and summer days aren’t always the warmest… Knit it with Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light.

6. Happy Triangles Sweater by Kiyomi Burgin
