9 Things Only ’70s Girls Will Remember

They say that everything comes back in fashion eventually, but there’s nothing like being there for Round 1. There are so many colorful (and sometimes regrettable) fashions of the ’70s. We remember being caught up in the trends and wearing some of these truly memorable fashions.

1) High Waist Skin Tight Bell-bottoms

The incredible contrast between the flare at the bottom and the snug fit of the waist made these pants truly unforgettable. These pants were originally standard uniforms for Navy sailors during the 19th century. Did anyone ever make their own pair of bell-bottoms?

2) Iconic Shampoo

Who could forget this incredibly catchy advertising campaign? Apparently, it’s out of production in the USA but Jergens sold the formula to a manufacturer in the Phillippines so you can still order one if you’re missing that floral scent!
