Costumes for a wild night

disco costume outfit

Okay are all ready to hit the 70’s again? I know I am. The fun and excitement of the 70’s and the disco era. Have fun at your next party with these hip threads. What is groovy about the threads we wore back in the day is that they were cool and unique.

Women of this era had a wide range of colors and patterns to choose from. In the same way, these costumes for women and men are unique, while still keeping in the style. Most include long, slender, belled out sleeves, and of course the trousers are usually bell bottom. Some women wore rhinestone jumpsuits. Usually there is a large belt, with large jewelry (usually gold). Other accessories could include a headband that matches the ensemble, a neck scarf, sequined hat, and other shiny, shimmering pieces of flare.

Women and fashion go together like bread and butter. Throughout the modern era women’s fashions have been unique and inspirational. Even when fashions change and one style gives way to another, those older fashions will always look amazing on a beautiful woman. That is why come Halloween time, when adults have the freedom to choose any style from any era to dress in, women in particular try to find a look from the past that dazzles. There is no better dazzling outfit than that of the 70′s diva, the dancing queen.

Disco music has lost its luster – for some, but not me and disco dance moves are less than impressive, unless of course I’m on the dance floor. Disco may be dead for some, but certainly not on Halloween. Styles and fashions come and go, but when they finally do go, they don’t really leave for good. Just because a certain style has gone out of fashion does not mean the memories made in those fashions during that era have faded. In the 1970’s disco was not only a popular music genre, it was a dance style, a fashion craze, and a lifestyle. However the disco era may be perceived by future generations, anyone can easily see that those disco-hoppers had the time of their lives dancing the night away. This is why, on Halloween, when current fashion trends take a back seat to outrageous costumes, there is nothing more spectacular than rolling up to a bumping costume party with your pals, all in disco wear and ready to get down, get down on it!

Lastly, and probably most important, is hairstyle. The high ponytail, and of course, the perm, were very popular throughout the seventies. Also women with shorter hair would curl their hair under, or choose the feathered look of Farrah Fawcett. The seventies were a time of experimentation with women’s hair, so there isn’t much that is off limits. If you can’t find the accessories you are looking for can be found or made at home – so don’t forget those accessories.
