Fashion Flashback: The '50s... '70s Style

"A Dozen Years After the Decade Ended, Everything's Back..." Photos by Bill Ray.

In browsing through old issues of LIFE magazine, I came across a rather amusing editorial about the "Nifty Fifties," featuring a revival of '50s fashion -- in a 1972 issue of the magazine.  It's definitely not the most fashion-forward photo spread, but it just goes to show that fashion and trends always come full circle and hey, what's old is new again.

On another note, the amount of cigarette ads in these mags is crazy.
