I was only alive for mere months of the 70′s, so I did not have the benefit (detriment?) of seeing these fashions arise and fade organically with the changing times. It’s basically a given that anything worn in one time period will be reviled in another (then worn ironically by hipsters). But…was couples dressing really a thing?
This is, as far as I can tell, an actual catalog item, not a Roman Tarzan Baby Wrestling Champion costume.
I feel like the outfits on the left are what 70′s superheroes wore on their days off, if not too concerned with safeguarding a secret identity.
Did no one involved in this entire photoshoot notice that something is missing here? This is not how one leaves leaves the house for (presumably, by the background image) a boat ride.
“We’re soulmates. We finish each other’s sen…sible mint green mini dress sweaters.”
This is what happens when you overshoot the mark after practicing your Catalog Faces too hard.
