Hit the stores or browse online at today’s selection of women’s shorts and you will find a heavy 1970s influence. The decade featured both high rise or high waisted shorts with a short inseam (mini shorts?) as well as hip hugger 70s shorts with unique pocket shapes, wide belts, and fun patterns. Plaid, checks, gingham, stripes, polka dots, patchwork, and rainbows all had a place! There was just as much variety in fabric: denim, corduroy, velvet, linen, cotton, crochet knits, suede, and leather. Everything goes in the 70s!
