Seventeen Magazine’s Boho Peasant Look of 1970

Vintage 1970 Paisley Peasant lookOne of my very favorite vintage fashion styles is the folksy peasant look of the late 60s and into the 70s. In fact, I wore it then and still wear it today to a certain extent (limited to a piece at a time; I can’t do the full-blown look anymore). It is still on-trend today, with vintage pieces being marketed as Boho, hippie, ethnic, gypsy and festival. So when I saw this fab fashion spread in the October 1970 issue of Seventeen magazine, I smiled and felt a certain satisfaction that this look continues on, 44 years later!

Vintage 1970 Boho Paisley lookI love these rich challis printings in a flurry of paisley! With peasant styling, in mini and maxi lengths, there is a lot of color and pattern mixing.

Vintage 1970 India print folk lookThen, as it is now, the color-chimed prints of India were popular. The Indian patternings painted brilliant tapestries in a harvest of separates.

Vintage 1970 Boho Festival lookTops zing close, skirts swing loose—long or longer. This is one look that always comes back in style!
