What to wear…

There are so many options you can choose from but remember the bell bottom line is to have fun!

If you can't find the following items in your closet or attic, then head to a local thrift shop. Most second-hand shops carry a wide variety of 70s inspired fashion staples.

70's Fashion Staples:

  • Bell-bottom jeans
  • Polyester leisure suit
  • Shirts and jackets with wide lapels
  • Poncho
  • Tie-dyed shirts or jackets
  • Peasant blouse or skirt
  • Halter-top
  • Army jacket
  • Maxi dress
  • Tight mini skirt
  • Tight corduroy slacks
  • Gaucho pants
  • Hip-huggers
  • Hot pants
  • Jumpsuit

Also think accessories – this really pulls a costume together.

Rounding Off Your Costume:

Hair – Pick from the shag cut, afro, sideburns, a thick stash, mullet hairstyles and of course a wig will go far.

Shoes – Footwear can complete an outfit especially when it comes to the ‘70s.Think knee-high boots and platform shoes. Men also rocked platform shoes in the ‘70s as well as canvas shoes with long white socks.

Can’t wait to see what you come up with, see you at the party!
