Timeless Style: 70s

In a new journal series we are looking at the t-shirt through fashion history - charting its rise as a wardrobe staple and championing the timeless style of the classic tee.

Starting with the Seventies, it was a decade that spawned some of fashion's most iconic and enduring looks, from Disco Glamour to romantic boho peasant prints. In fact, this season's trends have strong references to '70s luxe' - rich in nostalgic prints, caramel tones, silk wrap dresses and knee-high boots.

Classic white t-shirts were the perfect partner for the decades signature - high-waisted denim. Models including Charlotte Rampling, Jane Birkin, Jerry Hall, Lauren Hutton (main pic) effortlessly teamed their scoop neck and round neck white tees with flared jeans and cords.

The timeless look still feels modern today:
