Rarely a season goes by without the '70s influencing our wardrobes. Last season we saw the reintroduction of platform shoes. Denim has also felt the impact of the decade's style with flared jeans making a surprising comeback for the foreseeable future. However, this season isn't about silhouettes or shapes; it's all about prints. In particular there's an emphasis on vintage floral prints. To get better acquainted with what this means when it comes to the '70s, all you need to know is that this style of print often falls under the following category: gaudy.

But don't let that put you off. While I'm not immune to the allure of minimalism and all its elegance, there's no denying it can get a little repetitive. With the upcoming S/S 20 trends being big for sleek lines, I'm excited to see at least some fun prints coming through for the year. The flowers are either oversized or tiny and come in colours that are often clashing, with browns, reds and yellows grouped together or greens and purples.
The designers and brands embracing this trend into their collections include Marc Jacobs, Faithfull the Brand and Prada. An added bonus of this trend is that it's easy to shop real vintage pieces too. Dresses will be the easiest way to wear the look, but I've also got my eye on some trousers.
