Runway to Realway: Marc Jacobs vs. H&M
The 70s has been a HUGE trend inspiration this season. From high-waisted flares to billowing-sleeved blouses, every corner of the decade has been covered by the runway and the high street.
Marc Jacobs was at the fore-front of this revival. His Spring/Summer '11 show featured models with super-perms and corsages in their hair, strutting down the runway in printed sundresses. Many high street retailers have picked up on this and recreated similar styles.
H&M have done a particularly good job with this halterneck chiffon dress in salmon. Just like at Marc Jacobs, the neckline is intertwined with a lighter coloured material. Unlike the designer version, H&M's version is not midi-length but sits just above the knee.
Style it like the runway by adding a corsage on the waistband, adding platform sandals, heavy eye make-up and a stack of gold bangles on each wrist to complete the 'Studio 54' Disco-Diva look!
