Honestly, we’ll never get enough of the ’70s. From the bell-bottom pants and suede jackets reminiscent of the great American west to the glitzy gowns of disco nights at Studio 54, there’s a chic look for anyone. And with Halloween on the horizon, there’s no better excuse to go all in with a ’70s costume that channels your inner disco diva.
Of course, as fashion lovers, we’re not getting dressed as just any 1970s dweller. Instead, we’re taking a cue from our favorite icons for this year’s costume ideas. As we continue to move forward in an era filled with strong women, now is the time to embrace our favorite leading ladies. Whether you want to wear head-to-toe sequins for a glam night on the town or prefer to wear something on the more subtle side, this is the era that should be leading all your costuming decisions.
From entertainment queens like Donna Summer and Farrah Fawcett to movement leaders such as Gloria Steinem, these inspirational women will have you feeling all kinds of girl power this Halloween.
