Fall fashion: iconic styles from Tar Heels past

November 12, 2021

Plaid. Pastels. Pinstripes.     

Punks. Preppies. Hippies.

Paging through old Yackety Yacks is like time traveling through a fashion show. Tar Heel Threads didn’t exist in the 1970s, so we’ve pulled out a handful of favorite fits just for you.

All images are from the 1979 edition of UNC’s yearbook, Yackety Yack.
