Abba Accessories

 If you're looking to channel the funky, relaxed vibe of the 70s, you may be wondering what accessories will complement your Abba outfit. If you decide to go as one of the band, a wig is vital – whether you choose blonde flicks like Agnetha or dark curls like Anni, it's easy to find 70s wigs online or in fancy dress stores. Look for big curls, Farrah-Fawcett style flicks and plenty of volume for a glamorous look. Shades are also a vital accessory for that 70s style – the bigger the better! Oversized shades teamed with a long wig are perfect. Men should ensure that facial hair is on the agenda and what better way to look like Benny from Abba than with a full stick-on beard? Of course, you could go for a 70s style moustache if that's more your thing. Finally, you'll need the right footwear to carry your outfit off, but remember, you could be on your feet all night long! High platform shoes and boots in bright, metallic colours are a hallmark of the 70s, but for the Abba Reunion, it might be best to opt for lower platforms or take a pair of flats along to change into. When Dancing Queen comes on, you don't want to be hobbling around in pain!

The 70s is a really fun era for fancy dress and if you're lucky enough to be heading to the Abba Reunion show in Bournemouth, you're going to have a great time and a great outfit guaranteed!

Choosing the right fancy dress outfit is all about what you feel comfortable in; you don't have to spend a fortune and there are plenty of value for money outfits and accessories available to buy online such as the massive range at Hollywood Fancy Dress.
