1970s Fashion & Style
Be inspired by vintage and modern style influenced from the 1970's. The decade can be defined by flared denim, fringed tops, bohemian prints, suede and neutral hues. Often referred to as the "me decade", the 1970's embraced individual style. Hippie chic style defined the early part of the 70's, casual looks defined the mid era and disco fashion took over the latter. Popular pieces during this time included the tube top, bell bottoms and tops or dresses with halter necklines. More trends of the decade were pantsuits for women, one-piece swimsuits and wrap dresses. For footwear, clogs, platform heels and knee high boots took the spotlight.
1970s Fashion for Women
If you want to take 1970s fashion into the modern day, you can impress in a crop top or suede mini skirt. We also look at style icons of the decade including Cher, Lauren Hutton and Jane Birkin. When it comes to films and television from the decade, 'Annie Hall', 'Taxi Driver' and 'Charlie's Angels' serve plenty of inspiration.
A tailored jumpsuit or wide-leg pants can also channel a retro look. For accessories, hoop earrings, long scarves as well as headbands and platform heels will give you that perfect 1970s look. Hair of the decade embraced long and straight styles in addition to bangs or shaggy layer. And of course for black women, afros and natural hairstyles reigned supreme.
