- New research from Sony Channel reveals over two thirds (68%) of Brits still love 70s fashion trends
- Charlie’s Angels’ Farrah Fawcett has been voted number one style queen of 70s TV shows
- Over a quarter (26%) of women have rocked the Farah Fawcett hairstyle.
While young people may be inspired by the sun-drenched stars of reality TV shows such as Love Island, people over 55 still rate the TV shows of the 70s as the most influential when it comes to their style, and over two thirds (68%) of adult all ages still love the classic fashion trends from the decade.
When thinking of where our wardrobe inspiration originates, over a third (36%) of British men and women would say that it is influenced by the TV shows they watched, and anyone reminiscing the silver screen stars of the 70s, would find it impossible to overlook Charlie’s Angels Farah Fawcett.
Whether she was wearing her iconic red one-piece at the beach, a slinky sequined jumpsuit out on the town or sporting her iconic ‘Farah flip’ hair style, Farrah Fawcett has been voted the style queen of the big and small screen, not least in Charlie’s Angels when the world fell in love with her character Jill Munroe 50 years ago.
Farah has had such an impact on British women that more than a quarter (26%) of them have rocked a ‘Farah flip’ hairdo. The Angel effect lasts to this day with a further quarter (26%) of those over 45 saying their style has been influenced by the original 70s show.
When it comes to the 1970s trends that remain firmly en vogue, denim shirts and jackets, thigh-high/knee-high or cowboy boots, and the de rigueur Charlie Angel’s flares remain a centre piece of wardrobes around the country.
The nation is set for a new wave of Saturday Night Fever fashion with the latest reboot of the Charlie’s Angels franchise appearing in cinemas soon and shining a spotlight on the classic TV series which is being broadcast on Sony Channel right now (previously True Entertainment), on Freeview 48, Sky 157, Freesat 142 and Virgin 189.
