The 1970s were scary

I am a child of the '70s, being born in the flagship year of 1970. I don't remember it being a completely garrish time, but I was young and apparently blind as a child.

Below is excerpts with some insightful commentary on the fashion of 1977 via the JCPenney catalog (click the full-screen button on the top right for easier viewing):

1977 is the year I graduated from HS. These clothes were not only stylish, they very well creased too...I know, I ironed everything...and still do...ug!

I'm a product of '77...just missed that sinking ship. Course I was wearing acid-washed jeans and had a poster of axel rose on my wall--which is worse, really?

I have a picture of my mom wearing an extremely similar outfit as the one on the front of that catalog...
