I've said before that my dad and father-in-law both opted out of the bell-bottom fad. Maybe they didn't realize what wonders flared hems can do for one's figure. Or maybe, as young people, they already knew their "individual" styles.
Case in point: when my husband came home from work the other day, he took one look at me and exclaimed, "You look like my dad!" (This said with admiration, naturally.) It took me only a moment to realize that, yes, I was wearing shorts and black socks. All I was missing were the white tennis shoes.
Moving on... here are some beauties from the 1975 Sear's Catalog.
Who can resist corduroy? I can't.
And even though they're not bellbottoms, I can't resist sharing these gems with you:
Notice the denim boots. You could really go all out with the denim: jacket, bellbottoms and boots.
And you could even do an extra layer in there with a blue denim lesiure shirt jacket.
I'm not sure if this photo disqualifies my blog from family friendly status, but check out the Terry-go-rounds! (Notice the term "richly masculine" is nowhere to be seen in reference to these towel skirts...).
