Wear or Die: 70s fashion

70s_fashion

The words "70s" and "style" don’t really go together, but then again, neither did many of the items of clothing people chose to wear during that particular era, so we felt a journey back in time to the days of double denim and high waist pants was long overdue here at Wear or Die.

Now, you may well think the outfiit on the right isn’t particularly 70s, or, indeed, particularly nasty, particularly if you happen to be a fan of high waists and braces. Perhaps the fact that we’re going to force you to wear the hairstyle shown, complete with yellow ribbons, will change your mind, or maybe the horrors of the denim ensemble on the left will still be too much for you to bear: we’re about to find out.

Leave your comment below to tell us which outfit you’d choose to wear, assuming you had to wear one – die!

    The one on the right! I was inclined to it from the start, although I did do a bit of a double-take when I read the bit about the hair style and the ribbons, but still, the denim thing is just too.. aaaaaaargh! to be picked, thanks.

    I love the pose of the girl on the left. It’s like, “yes, I’m a clown and I know it”.

    Seeing as how I’m a preschool teacher, I think I’d look just fine if I showed up to work one day in the outfit on the right. I could say I’m the long-lost sister of Steve from Blue’s Clues 😀

    I would definitely go with the yellow “ensemble”.
    That way I could get into all the amusement parks at the discounted “child” rate.

    I am so all about the outfit on the right. It’s adorable and I it reminds me of H.R. Pufnstuf. And of other childhood things like those big cotton yarn things that we wore as ribbon, a la her hair…and stretchy rainbow suspenders and high waisted trousers and the Godspell “Jesus”…I’m not saying it’s chic and subtle but the outfit on the left is an abomination and should be burned right quick.

    I’ll differ from everyone else so far and say I’d wear the one on the left.
    I know what I would look like in the one on the right. The one on the left would only make me look like a fashion victim. The one on the right would make me look like a psychopath.

    Gah! Death. I think I’d rather just choose death and be done with it.

    Right. One, I wouldn’t feel like a space invader (or a strange clown) and two, I could go to people on the street and ask for lollipops.
    Plus, I could probably take the: Where’s Waldo? I found him! (LAUGH LAUGH LAUGH)
    XD

    The girl in blue is trying to blend in to the background. But I would definitely go with the one on the right. The other one reminds me of a clown.
