In the mid 1970’s, when a new generation of women began to enter the workforce in droves, in order to be taken seriously, they had to ‘dress’ in a certain manner.
Business suits were the sartorial expression for the majority. To soften the look, a silky blouse with a large soft bow was worn under a very structured jacket.
Flash forward 40 years and a new century later, we now have freedom of expression in the workforce and the only people who wear ‘ uniforms’ are those whose jobs require them to.
Fashion has been dipping its toe and splashing its foot in the 1970’s for some time.
