Fashion is by its nature capricious: changing often and highly unpredictable. There’s no telling what may catch the fancy of the public and become the new must-have item for summer, winter, BBQs, nights out, or what have you. The constant ebb and flow of design will inevitably create some fashion styles that are all the rage one minute, but in a few weeks/months/years, we all look back and collectively say, “Dear lord, what were we thinking?”

The 1970s contained arguably the greatest lapse in collective fashion design. The decade saw fashion styles come and go like you change your underwear. And speaking of, underwear design really had its heyday in the 70s, where ostensibly it was acceptable to wear them without any pants…in public. Did you forget about belted sweaters, how plaid was literally on everything (including sheep), and the regrettable men’s nighties?

Let’s revisit some the most terrible 70s men’s fashions that, Lord have mercy, will never see the light of day again. Do you remember all these?
