1971-1980: The Western influences

The wide pants of the decade, dramatic belts, go go boots, crop tops (a 70s fav), hot pants, printed pant suits (and other kinds as seen here and here), maxis, strong collars for dresses and tops, crochet (also here) and much more are around in this decade. Aka you didn’t HAVE to be in demure clothing to indicate you were a heroine. Though crop tops were not exactly street fashion! Maxis (or long skirts and tops) and to a lesser extent trousers with short tunics or tops were more commonly worn to college and the like.

And of course the Bobby polka dot was the best know film inspired fashion trend of the decade. Apart from the guru kurta that is.

In the pics: Zeenat Aman (1, 2, 3, 9), Reena Roy (4), Dimple Kapadia (5), Nazneen (6, excellent fashion post), Parveen Babi (7), Rehana Sultan (8) and Reena Roy (10).

PS: I didn’t mean this to be a Zeenat Aman post but her stamp on the fashions of the 1970s is undeniable.

In India piercings were regarded as a mark of beauty and social standing as well as a Hindu’s honor to Parvati, the goddess of marriage. Nose piercing is still popular in India. The piercings are often an intregal part of Indian wedding jewelry.
