Stars and stripes - 1970s style

I have a small collection of vintage fashion magazines that I’m always thumbing through for inspiration. Since today is a holiday here in the States and I have no plans, I embarked on a project to catalogue images in these magazines by theme. Or maybe it’s just procrastination in order not to complete the more challenging project I started on the weekend of drafting a waistcoat pattern.

I’m not sure how far I’ll get but in honor of the 4th of July, I bring you Stars and Stripes.

“Hurray for the Red White and Blue.” Ad for Miss America shoes. Seventeen magazine, February 1970.“It’s Denim-ite! Explosive star-studded denim knits, beautiful as all get up and go! Ad for Pandora. Seventeen magazine, November 1970. “A new year, a new you” editorial. Coat by New York Mackintosh. Scarf by Glentex. Bag by Jaclyn. Photo by Joseph Santoro. Seventeen magazine, January 1971. “Fashion ca$h-in $10 & under: The Flag Fling” editorial. Illustration by Garie Blackwell. Seventeen magazine, March 1971.“Pants have it made” editorial. Photo by Marc Hispard. Seventeen magazine, March 1971.“Jeans get set for the sun with a top and some easy pieces” editorial. Photo by Bruce Laurance. Seventeen magazine, June 1971.The pervasiveness of star and stripe patterns in the early 1970s probably resulted in my life-long love of these patterns.

There are a few more images on my blog's Facebook page.

Let's see what other procrastination avenues I can go down today.

I'm sure the reason I love wearing red and blue is because there was so much of it in the early to mid 70s. Procrastination Avenue = Memory Lane!

I love red white and blue - especially those trousers with the stars, they are amazing.
