Sonny & Cher's look of the '70s

The quintessential '70s couple costume, dressing like the hit husband-wife music duo, Sonny and Cher is simple. To look like Cher, you just need to don a wig of long, black wig, perhaps with a thin headband across the forehead. Next you need any sort of midriff-bearing halter top, the skimpier the better, and a pair of skin-tight, hip-hugger bell bottoms with platform shoes. For Sonny, a bushy mustache is key to pulling off the look. A pair of round, tinted, wire-framed sunglasses is also needed. For clothing, you can opt for a pair of vertical striped, bell bottom pants with a squared hem, patterned, button-down shirt with a wide collar. You should wear the shirt unbuttoned as far down as you want. Of course, a fringe suede vest will pull the whole costume together.
