With skyscrapping platforms, floral jumpsuits, flared trousers and maxi dresses, the ’70s are back with a bang this summer.

Since top designers like Marc Jacobs sent their models down the catwalks decked out in clothes inspired by the trend setting decade, the shop rails have been brimming with clothes from this colourful era. Rosemary Lowne decided to scout the Eastgate Centre for chic shoppers, to ask them about their style and what they think of the latest fashions

"I’m most comfortable in a T-shirt and jeans," she said. "I just wear what I fancy really, I don’t follow trends. I really like the jumpsuits that are in the shops at the moment.

What she’s wearing: Denim jacket and sandals from Next, dress from Monsoon, bag from French Connection.

"I got this dress for my friend’s 40th birthday last year and I love it because it’s smart and comfortable," she said. "I describe my style as thrown together as I like to be comfortable but also like clothes that will be suitable for work.

"I love the ’70s style that is in at the moment like the wide-flared trousers. I’m not so keen on wedges though, because I’m tall, I like to wear flats.

"I don’t follow trends, if I see something I like I’ll buy it."

What she’s wearing: Sunglasses from French Connection, jacket from Warehouse, top from Topshop, leggings from Zara, boots and belt from H&M and bag from Zara.

"I mostly wear clothes from French Connection because I work there. I think my style is quite glam. I’m not a slave to fashion trends but I have to know what’s on trend for my job.

"I have a lot of subscriptions to fashion magazines to keep up to date.

"For the evening, I’ll definitely dress up by wearing a dress or skirt and heels.

"I always wear heels, I don’t feel nice if I’m not wearing heels. I admire Alexa Chung and people like her who don’t really follow trends and don’t look really put together."
