LOW COST 70S FANCY DRESS IDEAS
FOR LADIES AND GENTS
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.
