The seventies was a high profile, glamorous decade with evident hippie culture were women wore glitzy styles, flowing skirts, tight shirts and flared pants. The decade was dominated by pantsuits, jumpsuits, maxi boho dresses, denim suits, sweater vests, turbans and headscarves.
The women accessorized with chokers, handcrafted neck ornaments, scarves, floppy hats, knee length boots, as well as accessories from natural elements like wood, shells, leather and so on. By the early 1970s, miniskirts became a fashion trend amongst young women. Women in the 70s dressed glamorously in fitted blazers, skin tight tops, with flared trousers, maxi gowns, and colorful evening dresses. Often times, sweater was added to complete the look and these sweaters were modified into more sophisticated styles, such as sweater dresses, sweater suits, and even floor- length sweaters.
Interestingly, by the mid-70s, the most adopted form of jewelry became simple, and usually worn under the collar of men and women. Some women may also wear anklets and wide straps sandals to complement their look. During this time, women started adopting a semi-formal look. Clothes were styled with cowl-neck, blazers, pencil skirts, high heels, turbans and leather shoulder bags.
Towards the late 1970s, women’s style included crop tops, jeans, knee-length skirts, tracksuits, strapless tops, cardigans, gold jewelry, heeled sandals, wide belts, and ankle boots. Women and teenage girls wore their hair with a side or center parting, African women wore afros, shaggy hairdos.
The 70s women were beautiful and bold in their fashion sense. Safe to say this is why some of these fashion trends have been recreated over the decade and seem to be evolving into better and more beautiful styles.
