Ask anyone about 70s fashion and one of the first things that springs to mind is the disco era. So what items do you need to create a real disco look?

Disco Shirt

Ruffled and Satin shirts were very popular in the discos and Amazon have a nice choice of colours and designs that are perfect for a groovy 70s look. Take a look at this lot;

Alternatively, you could go for a John Travolta Saturday Night Fever look with this black satin shirt which has an attached waistcoat.

For true disco style you'll need a medallion, and you'll be pleased to know that they are a low-cost accessory, starting at under £3 including P&P. Try one of these;

Chest Wig

If you didn't have the top buttons of your shirt undone then you were just so uncool, man! Of course, it helps if you have a naturally hairy chest, but if yours is on the smooth side then you can always add a fun chest wig.

Afro Wig

Afro hair was really big in the 70s (literally!) and if you're a black guy (or you've always wanted to be one because they always look so cool) then why not add an afro wig - guaranteed to improve your dance moves!

No disco costume would be complete without the legendary pair of flares, which were also known as bell-bottoms.

There are several choices at Amazon, with black or white being the standard choice. If you're brave enough, you can opt for purple or pink!

So there you have it - you're complete disco look. For many more ideas visit the Fashion in the 70s page at my website, and also the 70s Fancy Dress page for men. Have some groovy fun!
