70s disco fashion

1. Patterned flare trousers

A huge staple of 70s disco were the flared trousers, for both men and women. Whether it was paisley print, snake print or solid colours, flared trousers are a great way to recreate 70s fashion! And if you’re feeling extra funky, tiered flares are another way to step it up and step back in time.

2. Jumpsuits

Similar to flared trousers, jumpsuits were the epitome of 70s disco fashion. Particularly sparkly jumpsuits with a plunge neck. A good jumpsuit should be a staple of every wardrobe because it is an automatic statement piece. Pair with a faux fur coat and BAM, people will think you’re a time traveller.

3. Disco fashion 70s Mini skirts

Mini skirts have been a statement piece in just about every decade since the 60s, but were a huge hit during the 70’s disco era. Wear it with a halter top for the perfect roller skate disco look.
