    Still not sure how to style the leading trend of SS15? Well let Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne, Olivia Palermo and co. show you how it’s done. 

    From denim flares to suede skirts, neck ties to mega platforms, these girls have got that 70s show nailed, with a spring 2015 twist.

    Take your cue from Alexa who teams her bellbottom flares with a white shirt, skinny neck tie and that sooo Seventies leopard jacket. Nostalgic, much? Or pare down your oversized jeans with a fringed suede jacket and boho blouse, a la Kate Bosworth (pictured left).

    Suede separates are one of the easiest ways to tap the trend, say Florence Welch and Julia Restoin Roitfeld, or go Almost Famous like Rita Ora a fluffy star print bomber. And don’t forget those rose-tinted shades.

    The other side to Seventies style, of course, is the dreamy boho dresses. Dree Hemmingway and Poppy Delevingne have got this covered – start planning your holiday and festival wardrobes straight off the back or their, um, backs.

    Ziggy Stardust was one of the decade’s top fashion icons and everyone from Kendall Jenner to Dakota Johnson now seems determined to copy his jumpsuits, SS15-style. Sequin covered and slim cut, they make an ideal new silhouette for cocktail hour and are guaranteed to stand out over all the LBDs in the room.

    Making this throwback fashion trend work in real life is tricky (this is the decade of decadence that we’re talking about, after all) but click through to see how stars like Olivia Palermo and Chloe Moretz pare down the strong prints and burnt-out colours with more subtle pieces that already exist in their wardrobes.
