Welcome to our fabulous fashionistas' weekly blog! Every week our stylists will bring you steals, deals and heels.

We love it when there's a trend we can get on the high street, and 70's is the perfect one to wear this season.

After being spotted all over the spring/summer 15 catwalks at Saint Lauren and House of Holland, the 70s is big news.

With suede, bold floral prints, flared jeans and platforms galore there's something for everyone. Go all out and wear them all for a full on retro vibe or if you want to ease yourself into the trend then just pick one of these for a hint of the 70's.

Harriet says: "I wouldn't normally take inspiration from the 70's for my wardrobe choices, but with so many amazing pieces springing up all over the high street it's difficult to not get in on this hot new trend. I'm going for key pieces to filter into my everyday outfits, and this suede mini skirt from Miss Selfridge is the perfect piece to ease me in. I'll be wearing it with a white shirt for now and crank the 70's style up a notch with a gypsy style top."

This khaki off the shoulder gypsy style top is the perfect partner to this denim button down skirt from New Look. Wear them with a duster coat and opaque tights while it's still chilly and go bare legged for summer.

Team the denim skirt and gypsy top with a full on 70s platform heel with these gorgeous leopard print Topshop numbers, and why not go all over retro with a tassel bag to go with. This pastel pink Asos one will look perfect with the khaki colour top.
