Here at Dimmet, we love everything 70s, and no matter what decade you are in, or what trend you are currently following, the 70s style is here to stay – retro, vintage and classic. Dimmet has been in our family for nearly 40 years now, and with the 2016 total 70s inspired refurbishment, we decided to celebrate this fantastic decade of style, so nearly all of our interior accessories are vintage 1970s pieces, along with a wardrobe full of dressing up clothes so you can immerse yourself in the 70s vibe.
However, Dimmet may not be celebrating a blast from the past. The 70s are coming back! Remember that pair of disco flair trousers you used to own? Or what about the satin slips? Our most loved vintage outfits are making a comeback for 2018, with many celebrities, such as Bella Hadid, already wearing the retro vibe.
Some of the styles that are returning include monochrome outfits, neck scarves, trouser suits and let’s not forget the pieces that seemed to never leave, such as over-the-knee boots and slogan tops! And it isn’t just the styles that are rebounding back into our wardrobes. Patterns and colour crazes are also hitting the market, whether that be the flower prints craze which came from the flower power days of the 60s but stayed with us throughout the 70s, or the famous bold, geometric styles.
Miss hanging plant pots, wicker baskets and shaggy rugs, just like the one we have at Dimmet? Don’t panic! These are also making their way back into our homes this year, so you can truly indulge in the 1970s atmosphere once again! If texture was your thing, velvet sofas and Moroccan-style poufs are also weaving their way into stores to spice up your house.
So grab your wicker baskets, put on your pair of super-high platform shoes you have been keeping (just in case) and let’s enter 2018 in glorious retro 70s style!
