When it comes to costumes for men, there are not many choices available. Men today have taken a turn towards mixing and mingling different fashion trends such as vintage fashion and retro styling, trying to come up with something new to look hip, because for men there is mostly a suit or casual jeans and a shirt with a leather jacket.
So they embraced the casual style from the 70’s, also known as the hippie era. Loose shirts with ethnic prints of Mexico, India, the Far East, and other places on the hippie track were fairly popular. Over the years fashion trends for men haven’t changed much, there is a simple black suit with a dress shirt mostly white but now there are variations in the colour.
Thinking of the 70’s, there was perhaps more variation in the dress suit, the style back then was classic and made the men of that decade look unique. The dress coat in the 70’s had patterns on it, along with them were the famous bell bottoms, to compliment the look were the platform shoes or other ankle boots also known as dingo. In the 70’s the most famous style for men was the tuxedo which was worn by men a lot, the cheap colours like mauve, mint green or blue with ruffled shirts, which was not quite the look for men, but was in-fashion in the 70’s.
Fashion for men has always been precise, because with a little change in the trends a whole new look can be created. In the 70’s, men usually dressed up as disco dancers, with shimmery shirts and high bell bottoms, but for the formal dressing they preferred high waist pants with printed patterns and full cuffs shirts, they also wore funky wigs, just for the sake of fashion trends back in the 70’s which were mostly hippie, it didn’t bother them because it made them look trendy even if they had to wear the frayed jeans with tie dye shirts and blouses.
There have been some poor results in every decade in fashion but people have always shown appreciation towards all sorts of funky and not so decent fashion ideas, they’ve worn them shown the world and have been adored by all. In short 70’s fashion was a great way to show off the freedom in your personality.
