By 1970, women could choose who they wanted to be, they had more freedom to wear what they wanted. Women could even wear trousers! For evening wear women wore maxi dresses and halter neck jumpsuits. Platform shoes and flared trousers were also popular. They were popular among both sexes.

The hippie look was most prominent at the beginning of the 70s. After that, jeans became frayed and tie-dyed shirts were the height of fashion. In the early 70s Hot Pants and crop tops were the latest fashion craze for women.

Later came the Glam Rock period with outrageous colours and very revealing jump suits moving into the Disco outfits of the late 70s culminating with ABBA trends.
