35 Vintage Photos Capture People at Parties in the 1970s

The 1970s was one of the most culturally vibrant periods in American history.

The decade of the 1970s was in many ways a continuation of the late 1960s with respect to social trends. The activists of the 1960s crusaded for social justice in the 1970s, gaining new freedoms for women, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, homosexuals, the elderly, and other ethnic and minority groups.

The 1970s were a time of social change, disco anthems, and many, many firsts. Fashion in this period was about individuality. In the early 1970s, Vogue proclaimed “There are no rules in the fashion game now” due to overproduction flooding the market with cheap synthetic clothing. 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.

Take a look at these vintage photos to see what parties looked like in the 1970s.
