What is Disco?
Disco was originally created in the 1960’s and reached its pinnacle popularity during the 70’s and 80’s by incorporating funk, soul, pop and salsa. The style of dance is distinguishable by its’ rhythmic repetitive beats and electronic sounds.
Nowadays disco dancing isn’t as popular as it was in the 70’s and 80’s and is mostly practised within dance competitions and by retro fans worldwide.
Best Disco Outfit Ideas for Men
Saturday Night Fever
A popular choice is to mimic the ICONIC styling of John Travolta in the all-time greatest disco movie, Saturday Night Fever.
For a mens Saturday Night Fever outfit it’s all about the wide-collared, open shirt paired with flared trousers.
You can rock this look in many different colors and styles, but for the signature Saturday Night Fever outfit you’ll need an all-white suit, preferably bell-bottomed or flared, with a black (open) shirt and waistcoat.
There are plenty of different options out there for the comedic white suit style of John Travolta and it’s certainly a popular choice as a disco outfit for men.
These two are great options because they’re really well priced considering they come with the jacket, the waistcoat and the trousers – all you need to add is a pair of white shoes and some chest hair
…This can be drawn on or real.
Now, you may already own a black (or dark colored) shirt, if this is the case, you can go without the jacket and simply buy a white waistcoat and trousers, this will save you money and you’ll surely be wearing a shirt that fits.
By buying these two garments separately, you’ll be saving between $10 and $20! This also allows you to mix it up with the colors, making you stand out at the 70’s disco party!
The Bee Gees
For a great group-themed disco outfit for men, take some inspiration from popular 70’s music groups like the disco trio, Bee Gees.
There are two distinctive styles that you could go for in this respect, firstly a matching metallic style, in either silver or gold.
We love the metallic disco outfits for men that you can find online. The Bee Gees were big fans of open, metallic bomber jackets with matching trousers, here are some similar options.
This metallic 70’s disco outfit for men come in both silver and gold so you can mix it up, depending on what you prefer. We recommend teaming with 2 friends and rocking the all-gold disco jacket and trousers for a proper Bee Gees look!
To take this disco style even further, get yourself a long-haired wig and some facial hair to really look like the 3 brothers during their prime.
