40 Cool Photos of Boston Girls of the 1970s

The idea that 1970s fashion was an expression of one’s personality replaced the everyone-follow-the-famous trend of the ’50s and ’60s. Clothes were made to mix and match with each other as well as across gender guidelines.

Vogue declared “There are no rules of the fashion game now. You’re playing it and you make up the game as you go.”

Common items included mini skirts, bell-bottoms popularized by hippies, vintage clothing from the 1950s and earlier, and the androgynous glam rock and disco styles that introduced platform shoes, bright colors, glitter, and satin.

These cool photos were taken by AntyDiluvian that show what Boston girls looked like in the 1970s.


  1. Superb photographs. And so many well-dressed people.

    1. Yeah, great photos. The fashions back then were actually quite attractive and some of them still look contemporary in 2021. One thing that really has dated about the Seventies, however, is the technology. No Internet – that most people could access. If a person wanted to buy something, or if they wanted to bully someone, they had to do it offline.
