'Seventies style has hit the high street - and I'm a convert'
Designers love delving into the fashion archives for a bit of sartorial inspiration and this season it's all about Joni Mitchellinspired 1970s style.
Every designer worth their salt paid homage to the era in their Autumn/Winter Collections.
Naturally, the retro look has trickled down to the high street.
Eager to road test the trend, I stepped into some of the city's most popular stores to see how wearable Seventies clothes are.
I rarely wear anything other than neutral shades, but this trend is all about mustard yellows and burnt reds.
Snooping around River Island, I decided to go for a daytime look of a patterned shirt dress (€67) paired with a fluffy gilet (€87) and finished off with a Seventies staple, a pair of thigh-high boots (€85).
I decided to give an oversized floppy hat (€33) a miss in fear of looking like a total fashion victim.
Likewise, I couldn't bring myself to embrace denim flares - I'm not ready to give up my skinny jeans just yet.
I then headed to Warehouse, which has embraced the trend with gusto.

My day-to-day look consisted of a button-up A-line suede skirt (€72) and patterned blouse (€55).
It's similar to what I would dress in regularly, so I felt not only stylish, but also myself. Feeling confident, I threw on a wide-leg jumpsuit (€97) which I fell in love with and a shaggy, faux-fur jacket (€89).
I wasn't a Seventies fan, but I'm becoming a convert.
It's loud and the clothes are more cosy than clingy, making it a happy departure from the recent bodycon trend. Plus, the gilets are perfect for winter.
