Vintage Sweaters - 1975

Just a few more days to enter the giveaway from Vermont Country Store! Go and enter to win now!

20 years after yesterday's post, the look of sweaters is decidedly different. In 1975, sweaters were longer and were made of heavier, thicker, chunkier yarns than those of 1955. Worn with bell bottom pants, jeans, or long skirts, here are the sweaters the everyday gal wore in 1975.

Allison's Closet bulky cable knit cardigan.

Beverly Johnson wears a wool wrap sweater by Jane Justin.

Organically Grown by Arpeja acrylic (ironic) turtleneck sweater with center muff pockets.

Ellen Tracy wool cardigan with matching vest and hat.

They are still quite beautiful and I would definitely wear the first two today!

I think I still own that last one. You know thought I seem to remember my favorite sweater from the 70s was a twin set. Navy with white piping

I was doing some online shopping yesterday, and it looks like these big belted sweaters are making a comeback. Sometimes it seems the 70s are always making a comeback.
