The prime for blue jeans was the 70s. Everyone was wearing them practically all the time. At work, with friends, at home, blue jeans were comfy. No one desired to take them off. What makes 70s blue jeans distinct was the high and tight waist with a wide leg that flared a lot or a little. Bell bottoms are the most well-known but straight leg or flared leg pants were more common.

Jeans were paired with easy tops. Snug knit tops or polo shirts with big collars in stripes or solid bright colors. The loose peasant top or smock top with crochet trim, embroidery, inset lace, and neckties were trendy in the late 1970s. Long tunic tops in bright patterns such as paisley, chevron stripes, and ethnic designs began the trend in the early 70s. Also, these are also known as hippie tops.


Denim blue jeans were not the only casual outfit. Loons, flares, and bell-bottom pants came in all sorts of vivid colors and subtle patterns and were a staple of 70’s women fashion. They could be united with loose tunic tops and peasant blouses or mixed with sportier knit shirts. Soft ringer t-shirts with cool slogans and retro destinations are well-known 70s shirts today. So are rainbow-striped short and long sleeve shirts, crop tops and large collar polo shirts. Knitwear was in style in the 70s and combined excellently with the colorful pants.
