Flashback Friday: The 70′s
When we think of the 1970’s and fashion, we automatically think of hot pants, platform shoes, mini skirts and the every trending hippie appearance. The 1970’s is all about overturning traditions and creating new forms of fashion. Sundresses were also prominent, made of light fabric and simple patterns. Tie-dye shirts represented the psychedelic drug culture of the age, while frayed jeans, leotards and one-piece swimsuits were the most suggestive symbols of the decade. These garments were worn by the celebrities of the decade such as Farah Fawcett, who wore the one-piece swimsuit flawlessly.
Later in the decade of the seventies, punk fashion began to make an appearance during the touch times of the economic recession. The trend featured provocative patterns and unconventional clothing. Shirts, pants, and jackets were dark and tattoos and piercings became common. Embellishments were removed such as laces, patterns, and accessories from garments. At the time, punk fashion was not only fashion; it was also a set of beliefs. It allowed individuals to express their political views through their style.
1970s fashion was about overturning traditions for simple or extreme styles. The era of the 70’s is still visible on the runways and in fashion today in the form of flared jeans, platform heels, eccentric patterns, pussy bow blouses, and keeping with the punk fashion, black skinny jeans and leather jackets.How do you show your 70′s flare?
