Womens Fashion of the 70s

September 15th, 2010

1970s fashion as we know it was all about the mini skirts, bell-bottoms and the hippie look. That characterization will probably never change either. After looking through a group pool on Flickr called Lovely 70s Girls, I saw just how much more there was to 70s fashion. Whether it was good or not is what I’m questioning. Some of the styles are interesting, but I think that I find them more funny than anything.

    Other than the quality of the photos, there’s not a great deal of difference compared to what we see in magazines now.

  6. Shelby White says:

    @Aleeya I would still say that a few of these don’t really fall into the mainstream now for example, Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find these styles in mainstream magazines these days.

    Trying to find effective advertising that isn’t full of BS? I apologize for sending you this message on your contact form but actually that was kinda the point.
