The Grooviest Halloween Costume Inspiration, Courtesy Of ’70s Beauty Icons

We're quickly closing in on Halloween, and if you're still without a costume (or any ideas, for that matter), allow us to suggest dressing as a '70s female fashion icon. Not only were the 1970s a decade packed with groundbreaking style moments — from tie-dye to corduroy — but the beauty looks continue to inspire trends even to this day.

Throwing a virtual Studio 54 disco? Channel Diana Ross with extra-long eyelash extensions or full Bianca Jagger brows. Or, if you just got curtain bangs, take a hippie, bohemian approach and dress up as Farrah Fawcett or Stevie Nicks. Either way, scroll through for your easy and style-forward costume guide, ahead.

If you recently went blonde and have a '70s-inspired shag haircut, dress as Fleetwood Mac front woman Stevie Nicks. For makeup, you'll need eyeliner and a dusty pastel shadow.
