The 1970s began with a continuation of the hippie look with tie dye shirts, bell-bottom trousers, peasant blouses and ponchos being very popular. By the mid 1970s, the hippie look had completely disappeared and the trend was toward jumpsuits. Jumpsuits were almost always flared in the legs and either completely sleeveless or had extremely long bell-sleeves.
The early 1980s fashion was influenced by the fitness craze and included leotards, tights, sweatpants, and tracksuits. Athletic accessories were a massive trend and included leg warmers, wide belts, sweatbands and sun visors.
