The resurgence of the roller skating craze launched its own brand of fashion, which consistently morphed all throughout the decade and well into the 1980s. The 1970s skate fashion was more of an unholy alliance between disco and uninhibited sexuality (with wheels strapped to it). Even the men were often scantily dressed.

It was a time of sexual revolution and even when covered from head to toe, women found ways to exude sex appeal while boogieing on down. Stars like Cher were infamous for embracing the sheer and “barely there” look of clothing in the 70s. So much glitter, such little left to the imagination.
