Hippie' fashion in the 1970s

The hippie movement of the late 1960s continued into the early 1970s. Many young people had become dissatisfied with the prevailing mainstream social values, considering them to be shallow and materialistic. Some strongly opposed Australian involvement in the Vietnam War and others were calling for a greater concern for nature. Whatever their motivation, many young people in the early 1970s adhered to the values of peace, love and freedom and sought an alternative, 'hippie' way of life.

Many people embraced communal living and a nomadic lifestyle, explored Eastern religions, experimented with drugs and adopted a rebellious style of dress.

Clothing styles and fabrics were inspired by non-Western cultures, such as Indian and African. Natural fabrics and tie-dyed and paisley prints were also popular. Many people handcrafted their own clothes and accessories and personal items were often decorated with beads and fringes. Bare feet or leather sandals were typical fashion and flowers and peace signs became symbols of the movement.



Disco fashion in the 1970s

The popular disco music genre spawned its own fashion craze in the mid-1970s. Young people gathered in nightclubs dressed in new disco clothing that was designed to show off the body and shine under dance-floor lights. Disco clothing was usually only worn at night. It was often made from stretchy fabrics like lycra and spandex, or synthetic polyester and velour and decorated with sequins. Popular items of disco clothing for women included short 'hotpants', bodysuits and towering platform shoes. Men's disco wear included open-necked satin shirts and flared trousers.



Women's fashion in the 1970s

As the women's liberation movement took hold in the 1970s, women's fashion broke free from convention. Bras and corsets were denounced as symbols of oppression and conformity, and were discarded by many women. Women also flouted their new-found freedom by wearing traditional male clothing like baggy trousers, men's jackets, vests, over-sized shirts, ties and hats.

Fashion trends like miniskirts, bell-bottoms and long hair carried over from the 1960s, although some women in the 1970s preferred to wear 'midi' (knee length) or free-flowing 'maxi' (floor length) skirts.


Men fashion in the 1970s

Many people didn’t wear tie-dye or disco but more mainstream styles. These styles were really broad and encompassed a lot of different styles. Men wore shirts that were either pleaded or a button up cowboy shirt. They also wore Levi jeans. Men who played sports in high school would wear a sports coat with Levi’s. Old hippies would wear Leisure suits, which were polyester suites over a silk loose shirt and large collars. Ever wonder where the idea of casual Friday came from? Leisure suits were a casual suit that made things less formal.


Punk fashion in the 1970s

The punk fashion came from England in the 1970s. England was suffering from a bad economy. People were upset and started to revolt against the old traditional ways. The punk style consisted of jeans (preferably torn) with a black leather jacket. Safety pins or other needles were used as piercings. Hairstyle varied a lot as well. Some people wore Mohawks or other loud outrageous hair.
