That 70s Show is a fun and hilarious American sitcom based around a group of 6 Friends. The Show is perfect not only for a binge session on the weekends but also to watch how characters changed and ensembled their styles over this period of time.
Before talking about the show’s smart amalgamation of styles, it’s important to know what men and women in 1970s wore and how the clothing was modified and evolved over the period of 1970-1979.
For women, the basic and popular styles included were bell bottom pants and maxi dresses accessorized with scarves and beaded/feathered/wooden jewelry. Skirt length was mostly below knee.
Although they carried the 60s hippie look, but some women went for flared pants, cardigans with colors giving the feminine touch.
Men also chose bell bottom or flared pants as their basic 70s look paired with frilled shirts or broad lapel blazers.
In the mid 70s, both men and women dropped the wild look and graphic tees or other causal outfits came into fashion. Pants were straighter and collars were European.
With the rise of female working class, formal suits also arrived as a popular fashion look with bodycon blouses, tailored blazers and midi skirts.
Disco style took over everything in the late 70s. Sequins and spandex were two most popular fabrics.
Aside the shimmery sets of disco, for casuals, women started wearing revealing clothes like fitted shirts, strapless tops/tube tops, baggie pants and silhouette most used was inverted triangle.
Whereas, Men started wearing activewear like tracksuits, jumpsuits and cardigans. Color palette changed from pastels to earth tones like brown, grey and tans.
