How To Wear The 1970s Bourgeois Trend This Season

9 MIN READ SAVE

Seventies bourgeoisie is back with a bang – think silk blouses, sensible skirts, twinsets and tailoring. Style editor AISLINN COFFEY shows you how to wear it …

Conventional, ladylike dressing is back, 1970s style as seen at Celine and Burberry. Think blazers and skirts in heritage fabrics, including corduroy and tweed, and modest flattering fits. In a real move away from street style, there’s not a trainer in sight.
