Trend alert: Love Me Do/ A 70's love story

Love Me Do
A 70's Love Story

Analysis of trend:
This trend focuses on the mismatching of layered garments making new and unique proportions, e.g. longer skirts teamed with fitted, belted knits.  The shapes of the pant this season were re-designed to give an elongating effect, with flared cuffs, tailored waistlines and fitted around the thighs.  Florals are also a very strong element surrounding this trend.
