I can't believe we haven't had a best of the 1970s thread in the ladies' style forum. I have seen so many imagine and tasteful cuts from this era for the ladies, that it is about time I started to share a few with you.

The follow photos all come from Rundschau, May 1970.

The cover - a dress with fancy curved panels:

A dress with insets in the pleats:

I like the imaginative contrast panelling in this next cut:

An interesting "sporty" design, very 1970s:

A very contemporary looking shirt dress (I like the pleats):

Looks like the 70thies were good for the women, but maybe not for the men.

Not a single picture of a mini skirt.

I liked the 70's. Both mens and womens.

I was alive in the 1970s. A bit too young to wear these things, and let's just say I'm happy I was because nothing here is to my taste, no matter how well it may be made. I don't know what it is, there's something very boring and corporate about these clothes. It's late 60s, not 70s, but if you gave me Catherine Deneuve's character's fancy wardrobe in Belle de Jour I would not wear it. That's how ugly I find those clothes.

I hate the whole era, the colors in particular. I hate the greeny yellows, the yellowy greens, the oranges. Posted Image Movies and TV programs set in that period always are awash in that palette.

I also hate the 1950s, so I'm running out of recent decades to emulate. Posted Image

Hi KristineS,  can you say a bit more about the image you posted?  The year, provenance etc.  That would be really interesting.

I was curious and did a reverse image search on this picture. Looks like it's a photo from 1960 of model Helen Williams, who was apparently the first African American fashion model in mainstream advertisement. Interesting - and a beautiful photo, but not 1970's.
