LOW COST 70S FANCY DRESS IDEAS

FOR LADIES AND GENTS

You don't need to spend a small fortune on dressing-up 1970s style. I've been working hard to find you a wide range of the cheapest available groovy outfits, and there are some novel ideas here that you may never of thought of. So, forget about wasting hours on end trawling the web for an affordable seventies costume - they're all here on one page. Mark, editor.
The 1970s was a decade packed full of exciting fashion trends, and where fancy dress is concerned your biggest headache is choosing which style to wear.

The start of the 70s was still being influenced by the sixties hippy syles, with tie dye shirts (these featured bold patterns and colours) and frayed jeans still popular. Mini skirts reached the peak of their popularity, along with hot pants (tight shorts), high-waisted flared trousers/loon pants and fitted blazers.

The second half of the decade also brought us glam rock, disco (three-piece suits and frilly shirts were popular with men) leotards and aviator shades, although not all worn at once, obviously! By the end of the decade drainpipes had replaced bell bottoms and punk fashions were a cool, anti-establishment alternative to disco clothes.
