Flipping through your mom's high school yearbook is like stepping into a time capsule. What women wore to algebra and English is not the same as the True Religion jeans and Abercrombie tanks you wore in the early aughts. But we know that the past serves as a constant source of inspiration for the present, and peeking back at 1970s fashion can be both enlightening and entertaining.

Back when the Rolling Stones were singing about wild horses, women were slipping into colorful mini dresses, wildly high platforms, and head-to-toe psychedelic prints. And while these days, we've seen pops of these trends come back again, the modern iterations don't quite capture the same feel. So what were It girls wearing in the 70s? Check out the photos below for a look.
