I Dressed Like It Was 1977

  • Published on Nov 19, 2017
  • I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of forty years ago! From the polyester pantsuit and ascot-wearing wonder women, to leather-clad punk music fans and disco dancing queens in jumpsuits and metallic accessories, I had a great time pretending it was 1977 and exploring fashion history through one of the most iconic decades - the 70s. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these!
    A huge thanks to Kayley Melissa for rocking out this 70s hair! You can check out her channel here: thexvid.com/channel/UCctjAAIUSW3DRS-5Phh_hgQ

    I was 15 in 1977, and so basically wore jeans and t shirts. But I do remember it all, and you do it with flair and so much more fun that I think it was then. Wish I was there to see you kids in those get ups at the roller rink!

    @Safiya Nygaard, the emo scene look is a derivative of goth, and a lot of "alternative" scenes branched off of punk. So Punk is the big grandmama of all of them.
