70s fashion: photos that look relevant in 2021
70s fashion is a mixture of different styles or pure eclecticism. Here you will find retro mixed with ethno, and classics, romantic, folklore, gypsy style. And among others, boho-chic, hippie, lingerie, sports, military and safari, disco and unisex style.
It is this diffuse style of clothing that makes up the bright patterns on the canvas of modern fashion in 2021. Most of today’s “novelties” have come to us from past centuries. And 1970s fashion became one of the sources for the 2021 apparel, footwear and accessory trends. On the left there will be photos, originally from the 70s, and on the right – their modern “heirs”.
The mini-length skirt became one of the key trends in 2021. In the 70s, women of fashion loved showing off their legs just as they do today.
Jeans and flared trousers
Flared jeans and trousers are an indisputable must-have, both for the era of the seventies and for the modern basic wardrobe. From moderate to ultra wide, while leg size matters today. Fortunately, you can choose absolutely any.
“Wild” combinations of top and bright leggings
No comment: Balenciaga designers know better.
Ultra short knitted shorts
Micro Shorts are a bold 2021 trend that has replaced bermuda. If you were sure that clothes were more modest and more chaste earlier, then no.
Simple cut dresses were relevant in the 70s of the last century. They remain sought-after even now.
Boho dresses reproduce the aesthetics and richness of 70s culture. For the spring/summer 2021 fashion season, try this delightfully romantic and stylish outfit. Especially, if you haven’t done this before.
Flounces, frills and ruffles
Ruffles and flounces, wherever they are (on a dress, on a blouse, on the hem of a skirt or on the sleeve of a jumpsuit), will always remind us of the free spirit of 70s fashion.
Bright windbreakers and sports coats have become a hit of women’s fashion in recent seasons. In the 1970s, this attribute of women’s wardrobe was used exclusively for its intended purpose. That is, for sports.
Patchwork clothing reminiscent of grandma’s patchwork quilt is not a novelty in 2021, as all new is well overlooked old.
Bright geometric print
A striking checkerboard print, as well as stripes and diamonds of various widths, are one of the key characteristics of 70s fashion. In 2021, these motives are relevant again. Did you recognize the singer Cher in the photo on the left?
2021 has seen a heyday in crop tops. Bandeau, bralette, balconette – these underwear-like tops are very popular in the spring/summer 2021 season.
Today girls wear voluminous chains around their necks, on their belts, instead of a handle on a bag and instead of a bracelet on their wrist. This 2021 fashion trend came into modern fashion from the 1970s. You are welcome!
