The seventies were a traumatic decade for fashion.

If one was going to a disco, one must wear the proper attire. This meant the widest lapels on the face of the earth. One must also wear platform shoes, some being as tall as six inches high. For men, the leisure suit became very popular. These were cheap, and ugly, suits made for the casual times when men felt they should dress up anyway. These were often made in pastel colors and animal prints such as zebra and leopard skin patterns which added to their hiddousness. Men also felt the inclination to unbutton the first several buttons on their shirts exposing their chest hair or the occasional gold chain(s). As for women, the tube top became popular. A strapless, skin tight shirt that exposed their cleavage. The feathered hairdo also became popular with women which became popular with the television show Charlie's Angles.
