70s eco horror fashion

If you're going to battle the terrors of mother nature, you might as well look good doing it.  Here are some fun fashions from 1970s eco horror pictures.

Judy Pace looking fly in Frogs (1972)

Cool denim shirt, cool headscarf & shades & yellow terrycloth: Sam Elliott and Joan Van Ark in Frogs.

Joan Collins in Empire of the Ants (1977) - I love how her giant shirt collar matches her head wrap.

Tiffany Bolling's super cool shades and neckscarf from Kingdom of the Spiders (1977)!

In Piranha (1978) Heather Menzies shows how wavy hair and a tied shirt are done.  And Bradford Dillman's Texas belt buckle, plaid shirt, and fisherman's vest are choice.

Looking Amity chic in Jaws (1975).

Denim coat & fisherman's hat.

Tartan plaid in Grizzly (1976).

Charlotte Rampling's wetsuit and Richard Harris's cableknit cardigan and newsboy cap in Orca (1977).  Love.

Elsa Lanchaster's pretty floral blouse in Willard (1971).

Roughing it in the rural south in Squirm (1976).

I like Michael Caine's jackets in The Swarm (1978).

More big collars & denim in Day of the Animals (1977).

Shelly Winters in Tentacles (1977).


  1. What a fun write up! I really need to start wearing more head gear this Halloween as a nod to all our heroines who survived all these natural disasters while looking lovely! Shiny hair, pretty scarves and the notion that less is not necessarily more!

  2. Awesome post!
    Especially loving that floral blouse!


  3. The funny thing is I have seen a lot of these movies and agree with you! Bad movies but great fashion!
