The fashion industry embraced the spirit of the time and started designing disco clothes. Disco attire was composed of platform shoes, bell-bottom pants and a buttoned shirt, usually patterned or colorful. Other than the bell-bottom pants and scarves that were inspired by previous decades, spandex was very much in fashion in the mid-seventies.
All spandex everything, partly since the material is comfortable for dancing. Spandex shorts, pants and leotards and jumpsuits – jumpsuits everywhere and for every occasion. This reflects on the eighties’ aerobics style that came a few years later, and perhaps it was inspired by the disco culture.
