Women's Work Wardrobes Through the Decades

1970s Style


While disco divas donned flower prints and bell bottoms at night, the working girl in her put a spin on her office attire too. Inspired by Faye Dunaway in the movie “Network,” women went for feminine yet polished silhouettes and retro trends to add glam to the somewhat austere suits of the 60s. Shapes became less boxy and more fitted to women’s hourglass figures. The fitted blazer, which flared slightly at the hip, came in a variety of fabrics, including wool, velvet, suede, and leather. The buttons were covered and the lapels wide. Trench coats, wrap dresses, and tweed helped round out a woman’s wardrobe. Silk scarves and tie-neck blouses added a little sex appeal to suit.
