Cool Photos Defined Fashion Styles of Young People in the 1970s

The early 1970s fashion scene was very similar to 1969, just a bit more flamboyant. It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that a fashion revolution occurred in the 1970s. Polyester was the material of choice and bright colors were everywhere. Men and women alike were wearing very tight fitting pants and platform shoes.

Early 1970s fashion was a fun era. It culminated some of the best elements of the ’60s and perfected and/or exaggerated them. Some of the best clothing produced in the 1970s perfectly blended the mods with the hippies. By the late 1970s, the pant suit, leisure suit and track suit was what the average person was sporting. Every woman had a cowl neck sweater in her closet and every man had a few striped v-neck velour shirts.

Tunics, culottes and robes were also very popular. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which dresses were meant to be worn at home, and which ones were for a night on the town. Chest hair, medallions, polyester, butterfly collars, bell bottoms, skin-tight t-shirts, sandals, leisure suits, flower patterned dress shirts, sideburns and, yes, tennis headbands.

There is one common theme throughout fashion in the 1970s: pants were tight fitting. And it is probably the first full decade in which women could be seen wearing pants in every walk of life.

These cool photos were found by Mark Susina that show what young people wore in the 1970s.

The Book of Life

According to Kristy Edgar: “I have been making paper art for some time now and October is always my favorite month because I make teeny tiny paper homages to some of my favorite horror or Halloween-related movies.

This year, I decided to only make the ladies – scream queens, final girls, and ladies of the night. I’m really proud of how they turned out!”

Artist Sorted Famous Characters By Species And It Looks Like They Are Taking A Big Family Photo

According to Linda Bouderbala: “Here comes the second part of my series, in which I classify all these characters with their fellow creatures of the same species as if we were doing a big family photo.

Of course, I couldn’t do this series without doing the dogs and cats! I expected them to be numerous… But not that many! So many, that I even had to arrange them by color.

There are at least 170 cats and 230 dogs, and of course, some are still missing, but I think the most important ones are there. Between the research of characters, the setting up, and the illustration itself, it took me about 50 hours to draw the cat team and 70 hours for the dogs.

Let me introduce you to my hippo, fox, wolf, tiger, cat, and dog teams! Also, you can find my previous post featuring more pop-culture characters by clicking here!”
