Result
Well, the 1970's were decades ago, so we can't blame you too much for not remembering many of the fashions of the time. Some of these come back around though, so it might not hurt to bone up on your 70's fashion knowledge a bit!

Well, you did miss some of the tougher and more forgettable things about 1970's fashion, but ultimately this was still a pretty impressive showing! Some 1970's fashion has come back around over the last decade, but it's good to have the memories of the things we may never see again!

Wow! You sure know your stuff when it comes to the fabulous world of 1970's fashion! A lot of stuff is cyclical, and we've seen some of these things come back around over the last decade in one way or another, but you even know about the stuff that we haven't heard about in years. Great job!
