1970s Fashion To Buy

The '70s was a huge decade where many new trends were born, and not all of them were from New York's Studio 54 or the streets of Hollywood. From Farrah Fawcett, Debbie Harry and Bianca Jagger to Princess Diana and Vogue supermodel Iman there were so many style icons, but it was also a decade during which fashion was so strongly connected to music. Woodstock Festival was held in 1969 and Glastonbury Festival began in 1970 with the likes of David Bowie, Cher, and The Beatles hugely influencing popular culture and setting fashion trends.

There was another side to the 1970s that was all about bright colours, statement sequins, and glamorous pantsuits/trouser suits. Diana Ross, the legendary disco queen, brought us endless incredible looks during this decade. Clashing patterns was a popular look, as well as bell sleeves, hot pants, crotchets/patchworks, psychedelic prints, double denim, fur coats, bralettes and cowboy boots.

This is far from the first time we've seen '70s fashion splashed across our favourite online stores, but this round in the spotlight feels particularly momentous. Whether you want to dive headfirst into the free-loving vibe of it all, or just fancy dipping your toe with a tassel-trimmed bag or pair flared jeans, find 21 Daisy Jones & The Six-inspired pieces below to shop now.

To understand how fast fashion came to be, we need to rewind a bit. Before the 1800s, fashion was slow. You had to source your own materials like wool or leather, prepare them, weave them, and then make the clothes.

Fast fashion impacts garment workers who work in dangerous environments, for low wages, and without fundamental human rights. Further down the supply chain, the farmers may work with toxic chemicals and brutal practices that can have devastating impacts on their physical and mental health, a plight highlighted by the documentary The True Cost.

Many retailers we know today as the fast fashion big players, like Zara or H&M, started as smaller shops in Europe around the 1950s. Technically, H&M is the oldest of the fast fashion giants, having opened as Hennes in Sweden in 1947, expanding to London in 1976, and before long, reaching the States in 2000.

Other big names in fast fashion today include UNIQLO, GAP, Primark, and TopShop. While these brands were once seen as radically cheap disruptors, there are now even cheaper and faster alternatives like SHEIN, Missguided, Forever 21, Zaful, Boohoo, and Fashion Nova. These brands are known as ultra fast fashion, a recent phenomenon which is as bad as it sounds.

There is also a growing interest in moving towards a more circular textile production model, reusing materials wherever and whenever possible. In 2018, both Vogue Australia and Elle UK dedicated entire magazine issues to sustainable fashion, a trend being taken up each year by more and more big names.

Yes Friends is a UK-based fashion brand that creates sustainable, ethical, and affordable clothing for everyone. Yes Friends' first product, classic cut t-shirts, cost less than 4 to make and the brand only charges 7.99. Using large scale production and direct to consumer margins means Yes Friends can charge you an affordable price for its sustainable and ethical clothing. Find the range inclusively sized in 2XS-4XL.

When it comes right down to it, just about any look can be achieved sustainably if you examine the lifecycle of its elements. Shopping secondhand with a keen eye, seeking transparent brands and reworking your own tired garments according to recent fashions are the best ways to rock eco fashion and stay on trend this season and going forward.

If you're a woman entering or reentering the work market, chances are you're concerned about your career wardrobe. Granted, fashion options are widening for the workingwoman, but there are still rules about maintaining a professional image. The most important rules are to dress for the business you're in, and dress to show you mean business.

It makes good sense to buy the best-quality suit that your budget will allow. It doesn't have to be done in banker colors. Workingwomen are now replacing the conservative ''success suit'' of the 1970s with many new versions.

But in the 1970s gold boom the Middle East was the market that drove gold prices higher and higher. The region is still a huge gold market and consumed 250 tonnes last year, admittedly down 28 per cent on the year before due to the economic recession that hit Gulf expatriates especially hard. 041b061a72
