1970s Vintage Disco Shirt Sheer Psychedelic Polyester Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a 1970s vintage disco shirt featuring a psychedelic influenced print.  The pattern consists of swirls, flowers and other abstract shapes, all in striking tones of peacock blue, violet blue, yellow, black and white. This vintage disco shirt has a six button closure, pointy collar, double closure button cuffs and a chest pocket.  The fabric is made of a mix of different synthetic fibres and is somewhat sheer and stretchy with a sheen to it.  Stylistically, due to the tailored fit and shiny, sheer fabric, this most likely dates to the disco era even though psychedelic prints were on the wane by the mid-70s.
