When you have a look at the biggest trends on the catwalk, as well as what streetwear styles are wearing, so much of it is obsessed with nostalgia.

Designers love harking back to bygone eras, and right now, it appears that we can’t get enough of the 70s. Much of the fashion from that time is extremely wearable now – and also provides a bit more warmth and coverage as the temperatures drop.

One of the biggest trends to jump from the catwalk to the red carpet is bell bottoms. Skinny jeans have had their moment, and now it's time to embrace looser, more flared styles. And what better way to experiment than with disco fabulous bell bottoms?

Actor Tessa Thompson showed as how to do the 2019 version of bell-bottoms at recent a screening for Lady and the Tramp, wearing a matching cream Loewe suit where the straight fit trousers explode into ruffles at the hem.

If the ruffles are a bit much, look to Margot Robbie for inspiration. Keeping with the all-cream theme, she wore high-waisted jeans with more of a subtle flare, but still enough to give off a distinctly 70s feel. Pairing her trousers with a loose pirate shirt and relaxed waves in her hair kept the whole look on theme.

The 70s-inspired shoe trend we’re seeing a lot more of is platforms – the bigger, the better. Model and actor Hunter Schafer wore an all-red Rick Owens ensemble to the InStyle Awards earlier this week, and the star of the show was undoubtedly her thigh-high leather boots with skyscraper platform heels. Bonus points for the berry colour scheme being particularly well-matched to the weather.

Platform boots seemed to be the shoe of choice on autumn/winter catwalks, with everyone from Alexa Chung to Stella McCartney sending their own version down the runway. Even though they look daunting, these are actually quite a wearable style of shoe: The platform sole means it’s easier to walk in than your average stiletto, and the fact it’s a boot ensures your feet are securely fastened in.

Designers and celebrities have spoken, and now is not the time to be wearing your average button-down. Instead, the trend is for pussy-bow blouses and shirts with long scarves attached to the neckline – a la Victoria Beckham or Gucci.

These soft, chiffon shirts are basically a celebration of the 70s, and you can play around with patterns and colours as much as you want. You might previously have thought pussy-bow detailing was just a bit fussy, but this season it really is the ultimate fashion power move.
