As you can see, women's liberation rolls on full steam ahead, and the rag industry obliges with variations of the pant suit, an appropriate choice to wear to one's own liberation as pants, being hitherto worn mostly by men, are a symbol of power.
The pant suit, adorned with the "bell bottom" also made it possible for women to finally break free of the shackles of highly stylish, but liberation-inhibiting shoes such as pumps, mules or stilettos, and instead wear comfortable low or no heeled shoes that were concealed by the wide leg of the pant. (Nobody did.)
Makers of comfortable women's shoes were sorely disappointed, however, when the majority of women instead opted to add a few inches to their height through the use of a new discovery, the platform shoe. Stay tuned for the 80s when women notice that Football Players are the most powerful of all, and adjust their fashions accordingly...

Winter's Fashion Add-On
Fashion comes in layers this year, and nowhere is the layered look more practical, more stylish than on the leg.
A combination of pantyhose and knee-highs carries the new look right down to the toe and provides added warmth when temperatures dip. And combinations are almost endless. Basic beige pantyhose with beige knee-highs sporting a neat cable design or narrow rib for that monotone look. Or colorful opaque pantyhose with herringbone or geometric knee-highs for accent.
The layered leg really gives a girl a chance to pull it all together in her own unique way. With skirts, culottes or shorts - the layered leg is fashion's answer to a cold, winter day. October, 1972
