Women’s Fashion In 1975

Share this:

Let’s take a stroll through a few fashion magazines from 1975 and see what was “IN” for women according to Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Ladies’ Home Journal and a couple German magazines thrown in for good measure.  Get ready for an overload of floral patterns, unusual neckwear, and even a smattering of domestic violence.  Enjoy.

Apparently, blending in with the flower arrangements was “IN” in 1975.

More dresses that also serve as camouflage behind flower arrangements.  And I’m glad to see the pretentious, better-than-you fashion look was a thing as far back as ’75.

Dear God – I need to take my allergy medication just to look at these dresses.

Burda International fashion magazine (Fall-Winter 1975/1976)

Here’s a look through a German fashion magazine.  The styles look pretty similar to the US; however, I do detect a distinct Euro-flair.

Purple was big in mid-seventies German fashion.  Who knew?

Read enough 1970s fashion magazines and you’ll be amazed at how often Rene Russo pops up in advertisements and fashion spreads.

This particular Vogue fashion spread is more than a little bit troubling.  Clearly we’re witnessing some domestic violence unfold…

WTF?  What possessed them to present their fashions by having some dude beat the shit out of Rene Russo?

 

Burda Modern  – August 1975

Remember the long ropey necklaces.. and ascots? A good look in my humble opinion.

    FWIW, the December 1975 pics were taken at the Water Garden in Fort Worth, Texas. The ending of Logan’s Run was filmed here too at about the same time!

    People were better looking then than now.

    The Russo beater is running around in his bath robe, and he has to get on his toes to smack her. Wimp!
