Festival jewellery: 70's styling
Embrace the spirit of the seventies this autumn, with Bohemian bangles, mystical mineral-inspired jewellery and delicate necklaces you can definitely dig.
The spring/summer 15 international catwalks were awash with seventies references across all disciplines: accessories, silhouette, fabrication and colour. A quick glimpse at the collections conjured up Woodstock vibes, bohemia and a carefree approach, a trend which has been making waves across the high street and street style ever since.
To bring this look into your autumn/winter 15 wardrobe, we recommend you pair your fave suede, fringed, embroidered and crocheted pieces with delicate gold-tone chains, magical gems and dramatic cuffs to be your very own seventies sensation.
Bangles €3, triple layer necklace €8
Juxtapose thick cuffs with dainty chains to punctuate angelic white maxi dresses and fluid silhouettes.
We adore these mineral-inspired necklaces, which bring to mind Californian deserts and the era’s embracement of nature. The thick, textured cuffs add a bold finish, evoking toned-down Studio 54 glamour.

Ring drop earrings €2, curved bar necklace €3, fine bangles €3 each
Bangles epitomise the essence of an era associated with free spiritedness and eclecticism. To nail the trend, stack them unapologetically, mixing and matching finish, texture, and colour.
Although these thin, delicate bangles are practically calling out to be layered-up, a single one worn on each wrist will look just as beautiful in an understated way.
And don’t forget rings. Whether stacked or strewn across multiple fingers, our 8 pack of boho rings is perfect when it comes to seventies styling.

Tassel necklace €3, double-layer stone necklace €3, rhombus odd earring 2pk €3
These elegant pieces will make a subtle, yet sophisticated statement. Decorate floral maxi-length ensembles, A-line denim, high-waist flares, and off-the-shoulder tops with fine chains and delicate tasseling.
Alternatively, slip into simple sundresses featuring Biba-inspired prints and retro colours like rust, orange, brown and beige.
