summer fashion, late 1970's, England

(long time lurker with no information to give -- some of this stuff is way over my head. hah.)

A little piece I'm writing involves snippets from my character's past. It's mostly a flashback sort of thing, while she's living on the southern coast of England.

It is set in the late 1970's (1977-79), during summer. What type of clothing would both male and females have worn during that time? The boy leaning towards the more rebel/punk image, the girl just normal fashion (nothing fancy, just plain, boring).

Also, what type of bathing suits were appropriate? Bikinis? Were they called bikinis? Same for the guys - would they have just worn swimming 'trunks' (ooh, i hate that word)?
What sort of sleepwear would people have worn? Especially during the summer.

I researched a bunch of things, about fashion circa 1970's but it drew a blank. I didn't want to Google anything about the bathing suit, or pajamas - I'm paranoid of finding inappropriate sites. Hah.

Any help would be really, really appreciated.
