Hippie
The 70's are back ...!

Fashion trends come back around and this season is no exception.  So ditch the skinny jeans and pull out the palazzo pants!

A day out with my sister to the quaint, historic town of Rye in East Sussex, I embraced the "hippie" style!  

Once the haunt of smugglers, Rye regularly attracts tourist and film crews.  Ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passages we enjoyed a stroll around the shops, and afternoon tea!

The palazzo trousers, suede tassled bag and print headband contributed to today's 70's inspired outfit.  A purchase from Corsica, the printed wide-legged trousers felt like I had my PJ's on!!  Super comfy, soft silk, flowy ... these are packed for my next Holly Day ...

Today I returned to Bonifacio in Corsica, 4 years since I worked a summer season on the island!!  A beautiful, medieval fortress town which once housed Napoleon in 1793 which is brilliant for strolling around the alleys, boutique shopping and French cuisine.
My jumpsuit....definitely one of my best buys!  I absolutely love this from O'Neill and when going on holiday this is always packed in my suitcase.....1 outfit complete!  

This all-in-one is easy, effortless and ideal for a day or an evening out.  Soft, loose cotton material; it is not too tight or baggy, yet comfortable to move around and sit down in.

My top tips:

* Right Fit -   Not too tight so you cannot move around and sit down.  But not too baggy....this should look feminine.
* Day/Night - Roll-up the hem lines and whip out the flats/flip flops for the day.  Maximise your height with some pointy heels, you cannot distinguish your upper half to the lower half (if you are petite!)
* Minimal Accessories -  Less is more, a jumpsuit speaks for itself so keep the accessories to a minimum. One chunky necklace, or a pair of long earrings will usually suffice.
* Colours/Prints - Plain black is a safe but classy/flattering colour for all body shapes, perfect for dinner or drinks.  For those of you feeling more adventurous, a floral or bright bold jumpsuit can make you stand out in the crowd.
Add a layer if the weather changes; a crochet tassled black jumper was handy on this occasion........
