Seventies culture is captured for all time in many classic television series. To make any simple 70s costume for a child, go to a vintage clothing store and buy authentic seventies clothes and accessories. This is an inexpensive and unmistakable way to dress like your favourite 70s character.
Dress as a disco queen. Wear bell bottom polyester trousers in a colour like white, light pink or powder blue. Platform shoes are a staple of seventies fashion culture. For dressy disco queen platforms, decorated the shoes with sequins. For safety, choose a platform shoe with a 1-inch sole that has the look of platform shoes without excessive height. Wear a white shirt with long, pointed collar, or find a gold or silver sparkly shirt. Add a short soft silk scarf, dangling clip on plastic earrings and a rhinestone necklace. Feather hair like one of Charlie's Angels or buy a curly disco queen wig.
Dress a girl or boy in an ABBA costume, based on the Swedish pop sensations. For a girl, choose between a long blond wig parted in the middle with fringe or a long brunette curly hair wig with a middle part. For either costume wear a seventies vintage style white dress and white knee high go-go boots. Pair these outfits with sparkly rhinestone jewellery. For a boy wear an all white outfit as well. Wear white bell bottom suit trousers and a white collared shirt with a long pointed collar. Glue on a seventies style moustache.
Starsky and Hutch
Dress a boy as TV crime fighters Starsky or Hutch. Wear a brown leather bomber jacket with black trousers and black turtle neck. To look like Starsky, wear a wig, or curl brunette hair with tight all over curls. To dress as Hutch, wear a bulky white winter sweater with a pattern on the front, and pair with a collared shirt and seventies style bell bottom blue jeans. For this costume wear a shaggy blonde wig. Pair either outfit with seventies style tennis shoes or brown boots.
Choose a character from Scooby Doo. Dress as Fred with seventies-style bell bottom blue jeans, a white sweater over a blue collared shirt and a square red scarf. Wear brown shoes and part hair on the right side. Dress as Shaggy with brown bell bottoms and a long v- neck olive green shirt with brown shoes. Be Velma by wearing an orange turtle neck sweater with orange knee socks. Wear a red pleated skirt and red maryjane style shoes. Wear a close cropped auburn wig with fringe and buy a pair of large black octagon shaped sunglasses and remove the lenses. Wear a purple long sleeved dress and a sea green scarf to dress as Daphne. Add light pink tights, light pink shoes with bows on them, and a light pink head band. Choose a red wig with fringe.
