    Re: Clothes from the past you would not wear today

    Colours pop socks! Horrendous orange, pink, yellow knee high nylons cutting off your circulation..... And smock tops over jeans. Pop socks circa later 60s?anyone remember them? Smock tops maybe 71/72?

      Probably wouldn't wear shell suits but I still wear Y-fronts today and actually have a pair from 1983!

      Try looking at one of those Grattan catalogues to see just how bad 70s fashion was!

          Shell suit. I had a lime-green, white and black one with BOSS printed in big letters on the trouser leg and astroworld letter printed on exclusive clothes from astroworld merch. And it was a fire hazard waiting to happen....


          You must try these clothes again.

            I found a group on Facebook where there post old catalogue pages. Mostly American, but some 1970s fashions were very strange even by the standards of the day.

              I used to have a pair of brogues that had a big wide toecap like clown shoes, they were awful.
              School uniform requirements were not too specific so fashion at the time could be vaguely followed
              black shoes, black trousers etc, so in the 70s , our shirt collars were as wide and pointy as possible and there was a fad where us boys wore flares with Bolero waists, the more buttons on the waistband, the cooler you were

                In the past I am really a big fan of the xxxtentacion.So,I have a lot's of comfortable revenge hoodies of their famous merch.But after the death of xxxtentacion my taste has been changed and I dont want that kind of clothes at that time.

                      I kind of liked the flares/bell bottoms, it looked a bit like people had melting candles for legs!

                      Do not miss what little I saw of platform shoes though.

                      If I had to choose between really large glasses or too tiny look-like-reading-glasses, I'll go for big goggles! Those tiny specs just make some folks look like they have swollen face.

                            I had a pair of purpley-blue suede platform shoes. They were probably in fashion for a month in 1976 or something... I remember they seemed strange to walk in at first but then I got used to them, but I remember a relative having a car crash and saying it was the platform shoes that got her hitting the gas pedal harder than intended. I was always one of the youngest kids in my grade at school and the second smallest, so I guess trying to be taller, but then i shot up later and didn't need shoes like that!

                            I remember little white shell necklaces being a thing somewhere in the '70s, especially with a shark tooth pendant. Also mood rings; I had one, might be around and still work in a drawer someplace... it changed colour based on your body heat.

                                Clones are clothing that you have multiples of.
                                Underwear and T-shirts are one thing, but seeing that you have six of the same floral dress should raise a red flag, particularly if you choose one or two of them heavily over the others. Arrange it all out and consider what made you think these bits were so different in the first place.
