Hong Kong’s largest annual music and arts festival, Clockenflap, is just days away. With an exciting line-up of music talents from across the globe including M.I.A., The Chemical Brothers, Foals, Cheer Chan and many more, we can’t wait to get into our best festival attire and dance the entire weekend away. This year, we’re drawing inspiration from the 1970s, a decade which saw some of the best and biggest music festivals of all time. We’ve pulled together some of the most iconic trends of the decade and put together four outfits for you. All you have to do now is get your tickets and get ready for a weekend of fun!
Boho-ChicThis A-line suede skirt in Chevron pattern will grant you the 1970s boho-chic vibe you desire. Pair it with a turtleneck top to elongate your figure, then finish up with a pair of edgy-looking, lace-up leather boots, so you can dance with ease from day ’til night.
Get the look: Vanessa Bruno black Florence blouse (HK$5,460) / M.i.h Jeans chevron suede mini skirt (HK$3,785)/ Chloé mini Hudson leather bag (HK$15,280) / Proenza Schouler black lace-up leather boots (HK$5,273).
When done right, the print-on-print combination will give your look interesting layers and depth. To channel the iconic hippie fashion from the 1970s, go with a mixture of geometric prints and fringes, then accessorise with a wide-brim hat and finish off with this season’s hottest over-the-knee boots.

Bell bottoms — especially high-waisted ones — are another typical fashion statement from the seventies. Choose a bell-sleeved top in shiny fabrics to further highlight the silhouette, while at the same time creating a glamorous rocker look filled with edge.
