You may have noticed that I've changed all 23 posts labeled "Bad Fashion" to "That 70s Style" because it was driving me nuts. I don't think that 70s fashion is bad - the fashion now is bad. I guess my original thinking was that I would poke fun at all the over-the-top styles of the decade. However, I think 70s fashion is an easy target because it went out on a limb. It basically said fuck it, if I want to wear polyester pants so tight you can see every crease of my genitals, then by God I 'm going to where them.
I've said this many times before, but it bears repeating: today, we have no style. It's easy to poke fun at something funky and wild when you're wearing something so forgetably meh. Commentors on these posts typically call out hip hugger jeans as an example of a 2000s style, but how lame is that? The 70s dress code wasn't about a particular item of clothing, it was an overall vibe. Show me a picture of a guy in plain old khakis and a t-shirt and I can tell he's from the seventies, because the "seventiesness" is all encompassing.
Which brings me to this small full color gallery of posed fashion shots featuring young folks demonstrating that all encompassing seventies vibe.... a fashion that is anything but bad. Enjoy.
