Women are wearing t-shirts, khaki pants, mood rings, kimonos and flare jumpsuits. Meanwhile, men are wearing velvet sports coats, slogan t-shirts, flannel, frilly shirts, jeans and khaki chinos.

Because it's 1975, the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Billy Swan, 10cc, Alain Barriere, Morris Albert, the Salsoul Orchestra, Captain & Tennille, Elton John and David Bowie.
