Sunny Days, Girls and Blue Jeans Patches in the 1970s

Before the '70s era, jeans were assigned to the working class, namely farmers and others who toiled outside in the dirt and mud. But when the casualness of the late 1960s made its way into the next decade, jeans in the 70s weaseled their way into the closets of mainstream America.

Young people, especially, started wearing jeans daily and public schools slowly began adding them to the list of acceptable dress. College kids generally had several pairs in their wardrobe so jeans tended to be standard dress on America’s campuses in the 1970s.
