Pre-quarantine fashion trends for 2020 forecasted 70s disco shirts to be one of the hottest staples for the year! Now life fully hasn’t gone back to normal yet but one this is for certain, we definitely should take advantage of these vintage wide-collared gems.

Late last year, we stumbled across a true goldmine. Locked in a container in the depths of sin city (Vegas baby) were stacks on stacks of deadstock Oleg Cassini 70s disco shirts. If you wanna read the full story and have a little history lesson on these bad boys, you can click here. You all loved them so much, we’re having a second drop of these little beauties!

Relaxed Tailoring

 
While disco shirts are one of the top trends for SS20, relaxed tailoring is also hot on the list, specifically the trend of low rise baggy trousers. Seen strutting down the runways of Roland Mouret, Victoria Beckham and the much lusted after Jacquemus, things are getting a little bit loose this spring/summer with this trend. Pair low rise tailored trousers with a slightly fitted disco shirt, not fully buttoned, to show some skin and add some strappy shoes for women. For the guys up in here, be generous with sizing! Style with oversized trousers, matching blazer and trainers for a relaxed dressy outfit.

Trench Coats

 
So maybe we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves here since it’s still 1,000 degrees outside, but honestly, you can never be too prepared. Maxi trench coats are the one for chilly summer evenings and perfect to transition into autumn. Seen on all the IT people of the century the maxi trench coats bring a perfect amount of chic-ness. If you wanna spice things up a bit, go for a leather trench coat with some small glasses for a 90s Matrix look. For a 70s flare style your vintage disco shirt with the collar open and depending on your mood, you can style this with jeans or trousers. Below are some of our choices!

Waistcoats

 
Popular on the runways for Giorgio Armarni, Fendi and Acne Studios this season, nothing screams 70s revival like a waistcoat. Pair with a beautiful deadstock 70s disco shirt and you’re ready to go. An easy piece to dress up or down, waistcoats are an easy balance of cool and casual. Style with some straight leg or flared jeans and an open collar for an easy breezy summer daytime look. This can also be quickly transformed to a nighttime look with a simple change of trousers. Below are some of our top favourite pieces for this look!
