Hemlines down and waists nipped. It wasn’t a pure swing into wartime fashion but many of the similar features came back in the early 1970’s; midi hemlines, shoulder pads, jumpsuits, pastels, little sweaters with puffed sleeves, and platform shoes were really popular. It was 1940’s cutesy-style with a certain babyishness to a lot of the garments. That’s probably because many of these fashions were marketed mostly to teens and women below age 30. The dress above is pretty classic design, but the color scheme is just a hair too sweet from today’s viewpoint. And, of course, there’s the bra-less thing.
This would wind things up for a while, though I do have an investigation on the horizon. Stay tuned . . . . . . . . . .
