History Of Fashion From 1970 To 1979

The history of fashion from 1970 to 1979 was dominated by the glam rock styles, hippie movement, Hollywood and rising Indian clothing patterns and styles.

1. For women, the Hippie look of the 1960s carried over to the early 70’s. Popular styles included bell-bottom pants, frayed jeans, mini skirts, maxi dresses, tie-dye, peasant blouses and ponchos.

3. In the early 1970s-look, women wore tight t-shirts or dresses with a fitted wide lapel blazer, flared pants, sweaters, cardigans and boots.

4. By the mid-1970s, the hippie-look fell out of fashion for both men and women. Fitted t-shirts rose in popularity with elaborate designs, slogans and sports logos.

5. Men’s suits took on a slightly more European flair, with slimmer cuts, smaller waists, and a straight leg in the pants. Suits for men remained popular for all occasions.
