Women started gaining control over what they wear in the 60s and 70s. Some of the women’s 70s fashions that became popular even till date include the flare-legged pants and jeans. Also, flowing skirts became the fashion vogue in that era, alongside organic and earthy tops. These fashion trends are suitable for today’s 70’s theme party. You can garnish off your look with beaded bracelet and similar hand-crafted jewelry pieces.
If you want to achieve a daring appearance in your 70’s costumes for a 70s themed party, halter top on miniskirt will work best. Wear knee-high boots to complement the look. If you are wearing cotton shorts, a better top to match would be a retro t-shirt with 70s character. Recently in a party, I saw a young lady wearing a retro t-shirt with Princess Leia boldly inscribed on the front side of the shirt. She gained a lot of attention and admiration as people kept staring at her.
And, if you are looking for the most suitable 70’s evening look for a woman, the following clothing units will work best;

A lot of women in the 70’s used the tropical or animal print suits for evening outings. These would also suit today’s evening gowns.
