1970s Fashion Redux

By Silhouettes1 · August 31, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

I’ve written here before about the return of the 1970s in the fashion world. The NY Times recently did a piece on that very phenomenon, complete with a slideshow of the latest runway looks. I don’t know how 70s it all is (some of the women in menswear stuff looks like the 80s) but it’s definitely something different.

Here’s an example of the “menswear” look, as done by Tommy Hilfiger.

And here’s a green silk dress with bow by Marc Jacobs. I’m really hoping this look doesn’t come back. Add a permed head of hair and big glasses, and you’re talking every mom and librarian from 30 years ago.

And finally, something that really does say “1970s” …although maybe more 70s pimp than anything else. This look by Gucci includes a fox coat (purple, of course) paired with red shirt (bow, of course) and a purple skirt. Not to mention hat, sunglasses and boots.

Feel like menswear is totally 80s? Got a favorite 70s look that you want to resurrect? Tell us in the comments.
