Bell Sleeve Shirt 70s
In the ’70s, fashion saw a revival of styles from previous decades, such as the wide bell sleeve popular during medieval times. These sleeves often featured frills, lace or embroidery adornments for added embellishment and could be paired with either traditional puffy sleeves or dainty flared cuffs to form an eye-catching ensemble that appealed to both men and women alike – it became popular choice of clothing in both male and female apparel; TV and movie productions set during this era can even incorporate this look as actors attempt to recreate its authenticity through costumes worn during film shoots set during this era!
Hippie fashion of the 1960s persisted into early ’70s fashion trends for women’s clothing. Some went all out with their Hippie look, sporting tie-dye shirts, maxi dresses and fringed jeans, complete with tie dyed accents on them as well as headbands, scarves, chokers and jewelry made of wood beads feathers or stones to complement their outfits. Other women, particularly those working outside of the home, preferred more comfortable styles like fitted blouses and sweaters with close fitting pants or skirts that hugged close to their bodies. The tunic shirt blouse first seen in the 1960s quickly rose in popularity during this era, along with long men’s style button down shirts and slipover or pullover styles. These lightweight summer fabrics had either short sleeves that flared from elbow to wrist or longer ones which extended past elbow to wrist.
As the decade progressed, fashions grew more sophisticated and conservative, but cottage/prairie/Victorian trends saw the revival of soft peasant tops – usually white blouses featuring shirred or embroidered necklines either off-shoulder or chest. They quickly became a fashionable summer top trend then, and remain so today.
At this same time, athletic wear witnessed a remarkable resurgence as casual attire for both women and men alike. According to James Laver’s Costume and Fashion: A Concise History, American designer Norma Kamali revived sportswear dress through popularized items like ra-ra skirts, bandeau tops, jumpsuits and leotards; these became widely worn daily or for special events alike until well into the 1980s; this trend presaged an emphasis on personal fitness in favor of more casual living spaces.
In the 1970s, men saw a revival of three piece suits; these garments could feature corduroy, paisley prints, wool or crushed velvet material with three or four button fastenings, in vibrant hues. Men also donned tight fitting jersey knit fabric polo shirts featuring short sleeves with collar and button placquette; these could then be tucked into trousers and worn as part of a matching outfit with matching colored sweater or blazer; some even featured double pockets or different collar shapes while some even boasted plain or bold colors – these fashion statements had no end!
