33 Fascinating Pics That Defined ’70s Fashion Styles of Colorado’s Youth _ USStories

For women, the Hippie look of the mid-1960s carried over to the ’70s. Popular styles included bell bottom pants, frayed jeans, midi skirts, maxi dresses, Tie dye, peasant blouses, and ponchos.

Some accessories that will help pull together their ’70s Hippie outfits are chokers, headbands, scarves, and jewelry made of wood, stones, feathers, and beads.
Men’s 1970s fashion was largely influenced by bright colors and textures. Satin shirts, sometimes with ruffles or lace, were often pared with hip-hugging bell bottoms. Bright colored three piece and double breasted suits in corduroy, paisley, wool, and crushed velvet were popular for special and even every day occasions.

More casual looks for men included bell bottom jeans, Tie dye, flannel shirts, pleated pants, and sweaters with oxford shoes, platforms, flips flops, or boots.
