The smouldering Seventies have had a huge influence on this season’s style, starting on countless catwalks and, of course, filtering their way onto the A-listers radar. Naturally, with everyone from Nicole Richie to Cheryl Cole embracing the decade, we’re feeling suitably inspired to throw on our favourite flares right about now.

Behind the memories of orange and brown print curtains and flower power, the Seventies actually has a lot to offer in the style stakes – from floaty maxi dresses to hippy chic chiffon, the decade’s got something for everyone this season.

But with the high streets awash with nostalgic pieces, it can be a battle field finding the gems.
